What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the second X-Files movie (which is a stand-alone story, not a continuation of the series' core conspiracy) is more likely to appeal to adult fans of the '90s TV show than to teens, though some may still be interested. Be warned that it's pretty grisly (more so than the earlier movie): It includes graphic, horrifyingly detailed depictions of "scientific" medical procedures on unwilling victims, including lengthy, Silence of the Lambs-esque moments of a young woman in captivity awaiting her fate and images of severed limbs, ghastly stitches, copious amounts of blood, and more. Also, a psychic helping the FBI investigate the abduction of an agent is a convicted pedophile ex-priest with 37 victims; the character's crimes are in the past -- and deeply regretted -- but still discussed at great length.
