AN FBI AGENT ASKS MULDER AND SCULLY TO LOOK INTO A SERIES OF GRAVE DESECRATIONS HE BELIEVES COULD BE THE WORK OF ALIENS.
The desecration of a woman's grave in Minneapolis leads local agents to call in Mulder and Scully, believing aliens are behind the outrage. Mulder, however, knows immediately that they are not dealing with aliens, but with a human fetishist who gets off on collecting hair and fingernails from the dead. His worst fears are confirmed when the fetishist, a zombie-like funeral home employee named Donnie Pfaster, begins committing murder to get his trophies. Scully, already deeply troubled by this case, becomes his next target, and Mulder must race against time to save her.
