The exploits of FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully who investigate X-Files: marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena.

Secret files (season 1)

TV Show Season|1993

"Narrow" (eng. "Squeeze") – the third episode of the first season of the series "Secret materials". This is the first episode of the series, not connected with its basic "mythology". It belongs to the category of so-called "monster of the week" ("villain of the week").

The FBI is investigating a series of killings in Baltimore that are relatively common: all the victims were killed indoors, and from their bodies torn liver. Involved in the investigation agent Mulder compares different printed publications with articles about these murders and finds similar crimes, repeated every thirty years for over a century. Agents come to the conclusion that the killings commits a genetic mutant named Eugene Tooms, who goes hunting every 30 years.

Phenomena in artwork: Land creatures

As the unknown beings in the third series of the first season is a genetic mutant maniac Eugene Tooms, who eats liver for survival during hibernation. This man has abnormal metabolism and development of the skeleton and muscles that allows him to infiltrate the homes of the victims through a very narrow space (ventilation, chimney, etc.). In addition to anomalies of musculoskeletal system it differs in that it lives for over a hundred years, periodically falling into a long-term (30-year) hibernation.

This creature also appears in the 21st episode of the first season of the series. New information this series does not add, however, the operator is often a closeup shows the face of Tooms and his eye pupils in moments of finding prey become bright yellow. Probably, this eye color is a reference to the symptom that manifests in people with liver disease, caused by a large number of pigment bilirubin within the blood during the destruction of the cells of the body. However, in these cases, usually painted the whites of the eyes and skin, not the pupils.

Also in series 21, we show the cocoon, which is building the Tombs of the Newspapers in which planning to lie down in the next hibernation.

It is clear that for effect movie mutant abilities have been greatly exaggerated. In real life, of course, there are people with hypermobility or elasticity of the joints (for example, the same syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos, where defects in collagen synthesis lead to highly flexible joints and elastic, but easily breaking the skin or Marfan syndrome), but to stretch the limbs, as shown in the episode, they can't.

It is difficult to predict, who would have thought people had something similar in the real world. On the one hand, the mutant shows the behavior of a purely human characteristic maniacs. On the other hand, the means of entry to the home evoke thoughts of the supernatural. If judged only by abnormally long limbs, the creature can be called slenderman (during the filming of this phenomenon did not exist), but it does not fit other characteristics. To other known phenomena it fits even less, so added to the unknown creatures.
