The X-Files is known for its sci-fi storylines but every so often it reaches out a toe and dips it squarely into the horror genre. The more horror-focused episodes tend to be the self-contained monster-of-the-week outings, largely separate from the series’ overarching alien mythology story arc. This makes them perfect to view as standalone stories—and also perfect to watch on a crisp October night in the lead-up to Halloween.
There’s an X-Files episode for every mood, so some of the episodes on this list are truly scary—the show’s writers knew exactly how to get in your head and fuel some memorable nightmares—while others have creepy elements that are lightened by comedy. So come join Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Sculley (Gillian Anderson) for some classic spooks and scares—but be warned, there are spoilers ahead!
