The X-Files (S1.Ep22) – “Born Again”

Series 1 – Episode 22 – Born Again ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Director: Jerrold Freedman Writers: Chris CarterHoward GordonAlex Gansa Cast: David DuchovnyGillian AndersonBrian Markinson 

Back to the average fair that’s mainly been season 1. There’s always something to be gained by having scary looking kids in films. It works most of the time and some of the best horrors have creepy kids in them: The exorcist, the Omen, Goodnight Mommy, Pet Seminary, The Ring, the shining.. and the list goes on. This is not as good as any of the above mentioned movies, but it feels like a story we’ve seen before (in fact the idea of re-incarnation and revenge is explored a few times in this season). Nothing particularly stands out here. I’m not saying it’s boring, but hardly exciting. Also, annoying the title “Born again “ gives away the mystery from the start. Also after 2 such strong episode, this felt even more of a let-down.Probably the episode is more famous now for having Maggie Wheeler (a the time Duchovny’s girlfriend) playing a detective. She became well known as Janice in friends (and her famous catch-line “Oh my Gooooood!”).
