Friday Fun Fact : 1/25/13


Did you know...

Stephen King almost wrote an episode of The X-Files, which was to be an homage to Night of the Living Dead?  Furthermore, George Romero was set to direct the episode!

Though the idea generated interested amongst the X-Files staff, the idea never came to fruition.  In its place, we got the Season 7 episode Millenium, which dealt with re-animated corpses and saw Mulder uttering the line "Shoot them in the head, it seems to stop them", a line lifted almost directly from Night of the Living Dead!

Still pretty cool, but only a remnant of the sheer awesomeness we almost had on our hands!
