” I need this building evacuated and cleared out in ten minutes. I need you to get on the phone and tell the fire department to block off the city center in a one mile radius around the building. DON’T THINK! JUST PICK UP THE PHONE AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!” Agent Scully screamed!

With all the hype on the new season of X-Files, I thought we could look back at this amazing score and appreciate the music of the series or of the movie.

What was the plot of this amazing movie?

Here it is…In a small Texas town, a mysterious black substance emanating from the remains of a prehistoric human engulfs a young boy and his rescuers. Later, FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are in Dallas to disarm a bomb set to detonate inside a federal facility. Unfortunately the bomb explodes — leaving four inside dead. Mulder and Scully then receive a tip that the disaster was a government effort to cover-up an alien virus linked to the boy’s death.

The movie was directed by Rob Bowman who directed Reign of Fire, Electra, and Airborne.

The score was done by Mark Snow

You can get the score on Amazon.
