The Judge is In...

That's right. The judge for the 5th Annual XFN Pumpkin Carving Contest is no other than the creator of all things spooky, Mr. Chris Carter!

We know that you're already sharpening tools and picking the best design for your masterpiece; we think this will definitely motivate you even more. 

If you want to make sure you know everything there is to know about the contest, click here.

If you have any questions, you can shoot us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or via our social media sites on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.

Remember, the deadline for entries is on October 31st, 2014 - 6PM EST.


The 5th Annual XFN Pumpkin Carving Contest

It's Spooky Mulder's favorite time of year! (At least it is in our head cannon.) With Halloween just around the corner, it's time to kick off the 5th Annual XFN Pumpkin Carving Contest! We do it every year because why wouldn't you want to carve an X-Files pumpkin?

Carve us a masterpiece, and we may send you some cool XF goodies to cram onto that shelf with all the other X-Files stuff you have no room for. 

We understand; you're alllll a-tingle, but before you get carried away, here are the rules of our contest:

  • Your pumpkin must feature The X-Files in some way. But you already figured that one out because that's why they put the I in FBI.
  • You must send a photo of your pumpkin to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by October 31st at 9pm ET.
  • You can submit a pumpkin that you didn't carve for the contest, but not one you've submitted before.
  • Only one entry per Phile.

So how does the judging of this contest work? Well we always feature a special guest judge. Who is this year's? For now, the Truth will remain out there, so stay tuned for our announcement.

Until then though, start thinking of creative pumpkin ideas. Browse through the entires from 2011, 2012, and 2013 for inspiration if needed. Most importantly though, don't forget that the Truth is probably inside that pumpkin you saw for sale in that giant bin outside the store. If you want to believe, you're going to have to crack it open. 


Featured Video - Eyes Closed

The Age of 'Aquarius'

101514-Age-of-AquariusExcitement is building for David Duchovny’s new show, Aquarius, which is currently filming in Los Angeles. On Monday, ITV Global screened the pilot to buyers at MIPCOM, an international marketing event for buying, selling, and distributing entertainment content. Aquarius, one of the most talked about dramas at this year’s market in Cannes, is set to air on NBC in early 2015.
Set in the late 1960s, Aquarius stars David Duchovny as L.A. Police Sergeant Sam Hodiak who partners with undercover cop Brian Shafe (Grey Damon, Friday Night Lights) to investigate the disappearance of a respected lawyer’s teen daughter. When the case becomes connected to small-time cult leader turned infamous, Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony, Game of Thrones), Sam and Brian must follow Manson down the rabbit hole in the midst of a cultural revolution.
With the wildly successful and dark Hannibal, Aquarius may have found its perfect home in NBC. The network, which picked up a 13-episode straight to series order for Aquarius, is poised to push the envelope with the kind of risk-taking shows normally reserved for the cable networks.

Aquarius is produced by ITV Studios America and Marty Adelstein Productions. Executive Producers include John McNamara (Prime Suspect, In Plain Site), Marty Adelstein (Prison Break), David Duchovny (Californication, The X-Files), and Melanie Greene (Californication).
