The X-Files (S1 – Ep11) – “Eve”

The X-Files – Season 1 – Episode 11 – “Eve” ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

Director: Fred Gerber Writers: Chris CarterKenneth BillerChris Brancato Cast: David DuchovnyGillian AndersonHarriet Sansom Harris,  Erika Krievins, Sabrina Krievins, Jerry Hardin.

Here’s the X-Files finally showing the potential of what the series could do. A Intriguing premise, a plot full of twists that keep you guessing and 2 creepy twins (or probably more than 2) in the best horror tradition of freaky children, who as we know can be more terrifying than any monster (just a bit of a shame they can’t act too well, but at least the look the part).The story crams a lot in it but the episode is pretty well paced and never really feels rushed. Equally creepy and unsettling is Harriet Sansom Harris who plays the doctor (or spoiler alert Eve 6), you might have recognise her from her later role in Desperate Housewife (I seem to remember she was pretty weird there too). A nice cameo from Deep throat keeps is all rooted (even if a bit remotely) into the whole mythology saga, which will eventually explore the issue of cloning quite a lot. Good to see Mulder and Scully doing some proper investigation too! Definitely one to add to the watch list.
