    One could easily argue that, like many Ed Wood-type bad movies, The Faculty might be headed for the cult classic shelf in the video store. Unfortunately, it's not campy enough, and, worse, it seems to think it's being hip when it's just being dumb.

    I do not think this movie would appeal to a person over 18 years ... But I loved it! The argument made ​​me think "what if my school really happen?". effects are not very good because the movie is from 98. Full Review »

    The main advantage of this movie is a number of great actors (most of them were pretty young and not famous at the moment of production). The story is rather average for Sci Fi, there are some stupidities along the plot. The visual effects are not so good even for 1998. But still it's pretty nice to check it out if you haven't!

    A good high school alien/horror movie. Solid performances all around, especially Elijah Wood. Good writing and direction, interesting concept. Nice pacing and atmosphere. A really fun movie to watch. 8.9./10. Full Review »
