During the recent Weekend of Horrors I met up with effects man Brian Spears (I Sell the Dead, Plague Town), who gave me a heads up that he had done some work for The Black Dahlia Murder on a video for their song “Everything Went Black”. Cool, right, but why the hell should you care?

Love it or hate it, The X-Files was a cultural milestone that brought horror back in a big way. Like the rest of America, I went through the mid-Nineties completely addicted and eagerly anticipated the Friday night paranoia of agents Mulder and Scully.
