Derivative but funBy Lawrence Conquest from siberia , 03 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]The Faculty is an incredbily derivative film, lifting entires plots and scenes from the likes of Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers and The Thing, but despite all this the movie works well as an entertaining little horror flick. No classic, but slickl directed, and the usual bunch of overly photogenic American teenagers who populate this kind of movie are a little more interesting than the usual bucnh of slahser fodder. Fun disposable trash.

Wicked Film!!!By Abnormal (93 reviews) , 28 Nov 2013I adore this film. When you first read the film synopsis you think it just sounds like invasion of the body snatchers or something. But then when you actually watch it you find out that it really isn't. Personally I think its a hell of a lot better. The acting is superb and its just a wicked film in general with a great soundtrack to go with it.

Slightly strange, but worth a watchBy a customer , 14 Sep 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideA watchable movie, which improves as the story progresses. Good acting by the main characters and an interesting, albeit strange plot. Sufficiently scary, but also a bit ridiculous and not as believable as some other science fiction movies, which makes it kind of funny in places. At the end good triumphs over evil - I like a happy ending!
Hot boysBy gianino (648 reviews) from London , 11 May 2013So there are some hot boys: Josh Hartnett, Usher, Jon Abrahams, Shawn Hatosy and the black policeman :) But it's also original scary enough and cool. Hot boys being taken over by some weird teachers. I can't believe Usher was in it though.
Elijah Wood, aliens and his gorgeous blue eyes...By Renza (18 reviews) , 03 Apr 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]'The Faculty' makes for mindless, fun viewing where the word 'horror' should be used very lightly. It didn't scare me even when I was a 13 year old teenager. It was great to revisit this film after just over 10 years as I did not remember the plot, so it retained the novelty of something I had never watched before. All I could remember was Elijah Wood and his gorgeous baby blue eyes. Even now I could fall into those eyes and never return. The story follows a sort of Invasion of the Body Snatchers plot line as aliens start to take over a school. It has a surprisingly good cast (Not just Elijah Wood but Salma Hayek and Famke Janssen to name a few). However, it is nothing more than silly and easy on the brain. It's not a film that requires much thinking. It's worth the watch just for a giggle and some mild thrills - and to have a good laugh at Josh Harnett's stupid haircut...
