The truth is out there. But you won't find it on television. The cover-up behind a season's worth of "X-Files" will be exposed only in the comfort of your home-theater. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully take the leap onto DVD.

First film of the hugely successful TV series "The X-Files". Mulder & Scully investigate the bombing of a Dallas building, only to discover it is just one aspect of a new mystery that revolves around a young boy infected with a new and far more dangerous strain of the 'black cancer' - a lethal virus of extra-terrestrial origin that they have encountered before. Soon both the FBI agents lives are in danger as the group of co-conspirators, who've been controlling the truth about alien existence for over fifty years, suddenly step up their secret agenda - but even they may not be able to stop events unfolding. What are the conspirators plans? Who are they working with? What is the nature of this new form of the virus? What are the mysterious domes standing in the vast cornfields of the Midwest? Who is the mysterious Conrad Strughold or the slightly neurotic Dr. Kurtzweil? And how does all of this tie into a secret buried deep under the Antarctic ice.
