Invasion Of The Body Snatchers meets The Breakfast Club meets The Thing, with a healthy dose of self-awareness, a great 90s soundtrack, and plenty of cheese. Exactly as fun as it sounds.

The script, especially in the opening scenes, is fantastic. Very original, a great find.

An amusing, self-aware & exciting SciFi Thriller that has fun with High School archetypes and classic SciFi plots. 7/10.

By the writer of Scream, it's clear he was trying to pull the same trick with science fiction in The Faculty, with Clea DuVall's character a sci-fi fan who knows all the tropes. However, while one can believe a serial killer would adopt slasher tropes, it's much harder to believe that aliens would just happen to follow Body Snatcher tropes that a "fandom" could conceivably figure out better than a scientist could. There's an attempt at justification, but I don't buy it. Nor the proposed fix when the alien parasites can basically change a person's DNA. It's not quite spoofy enough to work as a spoof, but too spoofy for the lure of conformity as a metaphor to really work either. Rodriguez shoots it well enough, Elijah Wood is a dependable dark horse hero and there are a surprising number of name actors in it, but... It comes across as derivative of a bunch of other movies, to the point of cliché, not clever reference. And somehow Josh Hartnett's not an alien in spite of that haircut?! Watchable, but never gets better than Robert Patrick running like a Terminator.

Entertaining but terribly mediocre. Nothing special.
