From IMDB. The video release has additional footage not shown in the theatrical release:

  • In the opening scene you now see more of the alien. In the theatrical release we see it fight off one of the cavemen, killing it, and the other caveman gets up to see it lying on the ground draining out the black blood (or what fans know as black oil). In the video release, we see it run off after it kills one of the cavemen, and when the other caveman gets up, he tracks it down and then kills it using the broken end of his torch.
  • In the scene with Mulder talking to the Well Manicured Man in the car, he reveals to Mulder that Samantha, Mulder's sister, was abducted by aliens at the request of her father, William Mulder, so she could be part of the colonization project, thus ensuring her survival in the colonization of Earth by the visitors. Also revealed is that when plans went awry, Mulder was intended, by his father, to seek the truth and reveal what had been done.
  • There is also an added scene in the video release with Mulder running down the street after the hospital scene.

Summary Notes

Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a newborn child found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of a small town. Mulder loves the locale and thinks it's small-town America at its best. It even has a sheriff by the name of Andy Taylor. Sheriff Taylor is highly reluctant to investigate the family nearest where the baby was found however. He tells the agents that the three brothers who live there are all simple, the product of generations of inbreeding in the Peacock family. When the Sheriff is killed, all evidence points to the Peacocks and the FBI agents are shocked at what they find in the house.

Thanks to David, November 2017: Episode 2 mutated

I have revisited the first 9 series of X-Files. They were shown in widescreen recently on on Netflix, but Netflix showed the audio censored network version of the highly controversial episode from Season 4 called Home. This features inbred mutant like creatures burying an infant (a product of incest) at the start of the episode.

The baby's cries and distress as it is buried alive are clearly missing, thus conveying that it is being buried dead instead of alive. The original cries of distress had stirred American TV censors into muting the audio for official releases.

Also any buyer of the re-mastered Blu-ray set should be warned that the first disks issues showed some mastering errors in Season 8, described as 'crushing of dark colours'.

The fault was subsequently fixed and stockists offered replacement discs to purchasers from new corrected stock. See also details mastering errors at

Thanks to Nigel who notes that the uncut version is widely available on DVD and Blu-ray as an extra:

All DVD and Blu-ray releases are uncut and offer the choice of the broadcast version or the original version. I have The X Files complete Blu-ray boxset and it was one of the main bonuses that I had wanted Fox to port over from the DVD's. In the end they ported everything over which was good although the downside was no new HD bonus features.

The default setting is the broadcast version but the alternative audio is available on all disc releases as a bonus feature.

  • X-tro
  • Monstromo
Xtro is a 1982 UK alien film by Harry Bromley Davenport.
With Philip Sayer, Bernice Stegers and Danny Brainin.
YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
No censors cuts but exists in two versions, The theatrical version with a happy end, the video version with a downbeat end. The film was seized by police during the video nasties moral panic but no action was taken against the film.

Summary Review: Much to enjoy

If you can overlook its obviously low budget and tolerate the BBC Radiophonic Workshop-like synthesizer on the soundtrack, there's much to enjoy in XTRO. It's a simple tale of a family man returning to Earth after three years in the company of aliens whose customs and ways of life he hasn't completely surrendered.

Fans of the gross and outrageous will enjoy the sight of a fully-grown man being literally reborn and the several messy killings that further spice up this warped and somewhat disturbing British shocker. Although clearly inspired by Ridley Scott's Alien, XTRO actually bears more than a passing resemblance to Norman J.Warren's notorious Inseminoid, except things are much nastier here.
