Facts and Figures
  • The secracy surrounding the plot of the movie was so great that the scripts were printed on red paper so they could not be photocopied.

  • Also to ensure no leaks, the actors were only given the parts of the script that they were in.

  • Many scenes were cut from the movie including some scenes concerning Samantha, which Chris Carter thought would be too confusing for the first time X-Files viewer. (Though they are availible in the Video release)

  • Although you never saw it in the movie, there was a red hot kiss during the filming: "I can tell you what's not in the film is a blast," says Rob Bowman. "After we did six or seven takes, I said, 'Cut, print. Got it. Thank you very much.' They said, 'No, we'd like to go one more time.' So they started the scene. And they got right into the drama, coming closer and closer. And then tongues came out. And then they slapped up against the wall. She drove him up against the wall. Oh, it was fabulous." He goes on, "They did it again, because the cameraman goofed".
