Star of Scariest “The X-Files” Episode Joins Season 11 Cast

Easily the most infamous episode of “The X-Files” was Season 4’s ‘Home,’ centered on Mulder and Scully’s investigation of the Peacocks, a family of deformed farmers who have not left their secluded house in a decade. The episode proved to be so controversial that FOX decided to not even re-air it.

Via EW today, ‘Home’ actress Karin Konoval, who played the episode’s unforgettable amputee under the bed, will return to the series for next year’s Season 11.

While Karen Konoval won’t be reprising her role as the mother-under-the-bed in the fan-favorite episode ‘Home,’ she will be returning in a tour-de-force performance in an early episode,” Chris Carter told the site. “Or, more accurately — performances.”

Season 11 will feature 10 brand new episodes.

    this one was creepy, but to me, my scariest xfiles episode is still s1e19, or shapes. that goddamn werwolf scared the hell out of me as a kid and i never forgot it

  • Antisocial_ism

    I love Home, but I’ll go with Folie a deux or Unruhe as the creepiest episodes.

  • Necro

    Awesome! I loved her in that episode! Also a nice nod to how great at one time the show really was! Definitely a twisted episode, but for me ‘Folie A Deux’, ‘Squeeze’, ‘Darkness Falls’, ‘Ice’, ‘ 2 Shy’, & ‘Grotesque’ just to name a few, are some very creepy ones. Also in the annals of those type of episodes is what I hope Chris Carter & Co. are bringing this time around.

      i too love “HOME” but “Darkness Falls” is my fave (with “Ice” coming in a close 2nd)!

      • The One and Only

        “Folie A Deux”, I think that was the one where the telemarketer went nuts after seeing an insect like creature hiding in plain sight amongst his co-workers, and turning them into zombies. “Squeeze” was also a creepy, and good episode. Along with its sequel, “Toombs”.

        You’ll like it J, trust me!

        • J Jett

          Necro, i just watched Folie A Deux and it was pretty decent. i didn’t really find it overly creepy (the insect noise/fx were great though) but it was a good ep though. 🙂
          “Home” still is #1 for creepy/disturbing for me though.

    X-cops was a good one. I wonder how many people thought that was an actual episode of cops at that time when going through the channels. I bet they were scared shitless and they didn’t know wtf was going on. Cant wait for season 11 and hope there will be less comedy episodes and more horror mythology episodes unlike season 10.

    Home was great but the episode with all the satanist high school teachers creeped me out more.

  • The Fucked Up

    Aww… shame they’re not bringing back Eugene Tooms, by far my fav monster on X-Files

  • Jada Maes

    I want the Flukeman back. And the Conundrum.

    • Daniel Kennard

      That episode scared the hell out of me as a kid. It would be great to see him come back and do his disgusting stuff one more time

  • HeteroFriendly

    Never really cared for that show except for a few Darrin Morgan episodes.

    But you say Home was a good one?
    I’ll have to seek that out and have a look for myself.
