Friends, I highly doubt I am fooling anyone with that header, obviously Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) never actually came across the Haddonfield horror known as Michael Myers during their investigation of the X-Files. However that isn’t to say that it wouldn’t be a thrilling crossover to watch if they had, which is of course why this fan-made trailer for X-Files Case: Michael Myers was concocted by Deformed Lunchbox and uploaded to their YouTube channel. Taking scenes from various episodes of the long-running Fox series The X-Files and splicing them with moments from a number of the films in the equally long-running Halloween franchise – giving us a taste of that alternative dimension where Mulder and Scully crossed paths with Michael Myers.

In fact Deformed Lunchbox provided this description for the video itself:

“It’s Halloween, and Agents Mulder and Scully have a case more deadly than they could imagine… In the small town of Haddonfield, a serial killer named Michael Myers has escaped from a mental hospital and is on a gruesome rampage! Following the trail of bodies (mostly teenagers) Mulder and Scully are investigating to no avail. The two are unsuccessful at stopping the invincible boogie man, and they are failing to stop the bloodbath. Will the two agents be able to put at end to Michael Myers, or will they succumb to his carnage?”


In particular I think the music that Deformed Lunchbox used in this fan-made trailer is the icing on the cake. I can truly say that I was a devoted fan of The X-Files in the beginning, much of that was thanks to watching The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., which was the show that aired before the former. Although I must also admit that I walked away from watching the series every single week starting around season 8 – which is the long way around to admitting I am not sure what episodes were used for the trailer.

However I am willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that not only is the original Halloween featured in the fan-made trailer but so is the 1981 sequel as well as Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween: Resurrection, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, and of course 2018’s Halloween.

In closing out this article, if you recognize scenes from the fan-made trailer by Deformed Lunchbox that we missed, make sure you to point them out in the comments sections.
