The X-Files, I Want to Believe is a stand alone film in the horror, thriller, supernatural thriller genre and also the second feature length film based off of the very popular and long running X-Files television program. The film stars series regulars David Duchovny as FBI special agent Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as Dr. Dana Scully. The film also features notable Scottish comedian and actor Billy Connolly as a character named Father Joe Crissman. The film, however, does not feature the X-Files series main antagonist, the Cigarette Smoking Man. The story of the film revolves around Mulder, who has been in hiding from the organization that hired him since the events of the X-Files series finale and Scully who is working at a Catholic funded hospital, developing a close relationship with one of her more sever patients. The two are inexplicably brought together in Washington only to be told their paranormal expertise is required in a series of bizarre killings in connection with a man who was formerly convicted of child molestation who claims God is sending him messages of the crimes before they happen. However Mulder and Scully think that it is not God that is sending the messages but perhaps something much, much worse.
