The Faculty (1998)

Last night we watched The Faculty. Why The Faculty? Because I made the mistake of taking Vanessa with me to Blockbuster (she’s in love with Josh Hartnett). I was also surprised to see that Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi, Desperado) directed it.

I wasn’t expecting much but have to say that I enjoyed The Faculty—a well-done, campy, horror flick about a bunch of teenage misfits. Think of a ‘90s version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers that pays homage to Lifeforce, Scream and slew of other movies. Robert Patrick was quite funny as the football coach. The cast also features Elijah Wood, Salma Hayek, Piper Laurie (played Sissy Spacek’s mother in Carrie), Jon Stewart and Bebe Neuwirth.

If you need to laugh and enjoyed similar movies like Scream, then rent The Faculty.
