In the overstuffed land of unproduced teleplays lies a gem that could have redefined horror in television—“Crampton,” written as an episode of The X-Files, by Brandon Trenz and the legendary Thomas Ligotti. When an FBI agent is assassinated by a man who turns out to be a mannequin, agents Mulder and Scully are led to Crampton—a small town concealing a roaring abyss of madness behind a tacky, curtained veneer.

After The X-Files episode remained unproduced, Trenz and Ligotti expanded their script into a full-length screenplay. The film adaptation fleshes out the original teleplay, removing Mulder and Scully, introducing new characters, locations and featuring notably graphic violence and hard-hitting dialogue. What sets Crampton apart, however, is its philosophical depth. Unlike The X-Files, in which viewers could pin their fears on governmental or ETI conspiracies, Ligotti and Trenz offer no such refuge. In the world of Crampton, the conspiracy behind the scenes isn't orchestrated by human or even alien figures; it is inherent in the fabric of reality itself—absurd, enigmatic, and merciless.
