The X-files

7X12 X-Cops

The Cops film crew are on a ride along with Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy Keith Wetzel, when reports come in of a woman who claims that a claw monster is prowling around outside her house. Deputy Wetzel explains to the film crew that they always get crazy stuff happening when there is a full moon. Arriving at the scene, they find the hysterical woman locked in her house and evidence that something tried to break in. Moments later they are attacked and the deputy's car is flipped over. As other officers arrive on scene to assist deputy Wetzel, reports come in of two armed suspects, the film crew join the police as they rush to the scene. The two suspects identify themselves as FBI agents Mulder and Scully, working on a case in the area. Mulder explains to the police officers that there have been reports of sightings of something prowling in the neighbourhood over the last 60 days, always on nights with a full moon. Descriptions from witnesses of a large fur covered animal standing on it's hind legs, indicating the possibility that the creature is a werewolf. The Sergeant asks to see Mulder's badge again! Scully is concerned about Mulder's theory being aired by the film crew but Mulder likes the idea of finding evidence of the paranormal on national television. However his werewolf theory seems less likely as more attacks occur but witnesses describe their attacker as being there worst fear personified. But can they solve the case before the full moon sets.
