New X-Files Revival Promo: 'What If Our Work... Has Been a Lie?'

As usual, The X-Files‘ Mulder finds a way to inject paranoia into even the most joyous of occasions: In this instance, the latest promo for the series’ upcoming revival, a spot that Fox debuted Monday night during Gotham.

“What if our work, the X-files, everything we’ve been led to believe in is a lie?” Mulder asks somebody — Scully? Skinner? it’s unclear — in the new teaser.

Also of note: the gross visual of a creature/person peeling off its… face we guess? (again, unclear); and the sweet, familiar sound of the enigmatic Dana Scully introducing herself and her partner to someone new.
