Synopsis | Mulder and Scully investigate the disappearance of a man in a small town populated by cannibals.
Trivia | “Our Town” is Frank Spotnitz’s first solo non-mythology writing effort – despite being more involved with the overarching story alongside Chris Carter, Spotnitz would occasionally come up with spooky stand-alone entries like this one as a solo writer, including “Detour”, “Via Negativa” and “Dæmonicus”. Some characters in this episode are named after real-life cannibals.
Quotes | Mulder: “Scully, I think the good people of Dudley have been eating more than just chicken.” Scully: “You think these people were eaten!?”
