How would you describe the tone of this film?
Gillian: Itís a real thriller, a real scary movie. It has a strong supernatural element, which I like, and weíre combining that with a horror element. Itís the kind of film thatís going to scare the audience, make them jump out of their seats, which I think is what the best episodes of The X-Files did to the audience. The film goes back to the roots of the television series, which is to have a strong supernatural-horror feeling, really scary.
Why do you think people love these characters so much?
Gillian: I think the relationship between Mulder and Scully is a classic, archetypal relationship between two strong-willed people who start out with a very different view of the world and evolve over time, along with a romantic undercurrent to the relationship that was handled in a very interesting way. It was a magical feeling for me to be back working with David again on these characters and I hope the audience feels the same thing when they see the film.
