The X-Files Season 1 Scene That Made Everyone
On Set Uncomfortable
By CHRISTIAN GAINEY
"The X-Files" spent the 1990s and early 2000s scaring the crap out of anyone brave enough to watch it. The cases of Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) focused on the things that hide in the dark, causing the mysterious bumps you hear in the night.
Monsters in "The X-Files" ranged from the absurd to the downright horrifying, but one of them caused some real horror behind the scenes. Eugene Victor Tooms, an immortal, liver-eating, contortionist serial killer that covers himself in bile is an "X-Files" fan-favorite, regularly topping lists of the show's best monsters ever.
Actor Doug Hutchison upped the creep factor even more, as show creator Chris Carter explained: "[Hutchison] wanted to shoot the whole thing naked, was naked on the set, and it caused a little bit of discomfort, which was good. I think David was very nervous about being in a little, tiny, confined space with a naked man, to be honest. I think it made the scare, the creep all [the] more real."
