Last night I had a really disturbing "X-Files" dream (Scully and all). I hadn't even been watching the show so I have NO idea where this came from...
So... I show up as an agent for the FBI and there is a field of corpses where a UFO had been sighted. We find a young girl (presumably played by the fabulous Dakota Fanning) in the middle of all these dead bodies. The one next to her was a man whose body was still intact but a giant chunk of his lower right leg had been burned to the bone. She's the only one who lived. We take her back to HQ and are trying to figure out what happened. On the way out, Scully sees one of the bodies moving and they have the body med/evac'd to a military hospital.
The little girl eventually comes out of shock to say that she saw the UFO mothership, saw a flash of brilliant light and then she blacked out to awaken on the ship. Somehow she could see what was happening on the ground and all the people were catching on fire. The next thing she knew, she was back on the ground and saw the agents and the helicopters.
Scully rings and tells us to come down to the hospital because something's happened to the patient they brought in. We arrive to see that his flesh is breaking down and that, even though he has cellular structure and tissue fibre, there is barely anything holding him together. His name is "Robbie" and he is conscious and can speak a little but his lips are sticking together due to the consistency of his body tissue. His bones are basically cartilage. He tells us basically what the girl told us, but from a ground observer's point of view. He is so frustrated with what he is turning into that he struggles and rips his hands and feet off as he tries to break from the safety restraints. All of his bodily fluids start pouring out all over the floor and he dies.
We do some research and there seems to be a wave of sightings. The event where all the people got burned happened after the time between sightings in that area decreased. We notice that something similar is happening in another area so I am sent out there to investigate before the next event takes place.
I am driving down this country road where there is an occasional estate set way back along this one hill that is covered in trees. To my left is pretty much all grain fields. I come to a crossroad and have to stop. Another car is coming from my right. The car slows down to a crawl as it passes. Though I cannot see clearly into the car, I notice that the driver is looking at me. I take the plate and make of the car before it speeds away.
I continue driving down the road to this area where the UFOs seem to be hovering over from time to time and where a lot of the sightings are taking place. The road eventually turns into a driveway to a modest country estate that sits atop a hill.
I get out of the car and start walking up a gravel service drive. I see a gardener and call out to him. He looks up and scowls. I hear him muttering something to me but it is not in English. He turns away and starts heading for a shed. I continue toward the house and see a wooden staircase that leads to a lower part of the property behind the house. I decide to take it. As I am heading down, I round this corner and bump into a young man who looks like "Robbie", the boy we brought into the hospital. He stares intensely at me and pushes past me. I noticed that his skin is severely scarred. I turn around and call out, "Robbie?" He turns around, opens his mouth and out comes this deathly scream like the roar of a million people dying.
...then I woke up.
