Are you insane, Gillian Anderson?!

The X-Files are terrifying, and now Gillian’s kids Felix and Oscar know it. The Anderson spawn are 7 and 9 respectively, which is wayyyy to young to watch the creeptastic perfection that is the X-Files, but that’s just one loner weirdo’s opinion, I GUESS.

Anderson, who obvi stars in Fox’s six-episode X-Files revival, stopped by The Talk on Wednesday to talk about being a bad parent:

“It backfired so badly. I literally chose the least scary of all of them, which also happens to be my favorite episode, which is called ‘Bad Blood,’ ” Anderson explains.

Unfortunately the “least scary” episode — which features Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) investigating possible vampires — still managed to terrify Anderson’s sons.

“They had nightmares for weeks!” Anderson says. “They’ve seen Harry Potter, they’ve seen Voldemort, they’ve seen Orcs, they’ve seen everything [and this scared them]. It literally is the bane of my existence.”

The X-Files returns to Fox on Jan. 24  at 10 p.m ET, and I HIGHLY DOUBT Gillian’s kids will be tuning in.

Are you excited for the X-Files revival?
