X-Files plot not so secret anymore [The X-Files]

After months of secrecy, details about the X-Files sequel are leaking out faster than Mulder can formulate an unlikely explanation for kooky happenings. This week we already found out the movie’s title, and now a plot outline’s surfaced. Vaguely spoilery details post-jump.

From io9:

When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest’s questionable “visions” send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women’s disappearance. It’s a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past. Still, the truth of these horrific crimes is out there somewhere… and it will take Mulder and Scully to find it!

Neat! I like that the plot is the elegantly simple, classic X-Files, and doesn’t seem to be wrapped up in the complex mythology that often bogged down the series. Fingers crossed the movie is a big hit, so we can starting looking forward to the 2012 sequel that explores the end of the world.
