the x files is one of my favorite shows (though i admittedly stopped watching when mulder left at the end of season 7) & the more horror/sci-fi i watch the more i miss it. so here's a list celebrating films that have influenced the x files or have the overall feel of an x files episode! suggestions very welcome! :)
