9.4/10. Well made movie here.The faculty of a high school becoming possessed by aliens of another planet's actually well done.I actually got invested in it as I might not have as a lot of late 90's horror didn't care about quality.Here though they really do care.Elijah Wood, Robert Patrick, Famke Janssen, Jordanna Brewster, Josh Harnett, and Clea Duvall did great.The T-1000 facing off against Frodo is amusing as is the nephew of Michael Myers against Jean Grey, Three scenes that stuck out for me were:1.Famke Janssen being sexy, putting Josh Harnett in his place,2.Famke Janssen's head crawling along during her possession and 3. The alien queen revealing herself to the future Frodo.This is a gem of the 90's that deserves the recognition it gets.It should've come out during the golden age of modern horror from 1974-1991.


The Faculty is a science fiction horror film that's fun as a game of "spot the actor" as many of the players become famous soon after this film. It's also a pretty effective mash up of various earlier films but not a parody-here, it's wary students vs teachers who are acting weirdly, and if you stay for detention or are left alone with them, you're likely never to return. Fun for some, especially those who like films such as Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Thing.

Continuity mistake: When Casey is walking up to the school after his father drove him there, we see that Casey's bag strap is backwards. Then they cut to the car, and when they cut back to Casey and all of a sudden, his bagstrap is turned the right way. The next cut is when coach Willis and Casey's father look at Casey and then Casey starts to walk up to the school again and his bag strap is turned backwards again.
