Excellent. A unique way of twisting the teenage horror genre. Instead of relying on the usual hack n slash tactics that many horror film makers have come to rely on, this film sneaks in a sci-fi undertone to add suspense. The cast of Excellent. A unique way of twisting the teenage horror genre. Instead of relying on the usual hack n slash tactics that many horror film makers have come to rely on, this film sneaks in a sci-fi undertone to add suspense. The cast of characters is diverse and wonderfully acted. Sure there are a few stock roles but the actors and actresses who fill them do a great job at putting themselves in the roles. It's a shame that this movie didn't gain the same cult following that other teen dramas such as Donnie Darko obtained but all the same, it is a thrilling film. Expand

This is one of the best science fiction movie with teenagers ever. Everyone is great and they can act very well. Also, the movie has a very good concept of combining The Breakfast Club with Body Snatchers.

A very good horror film that creates an excellent character in Coach. The Faculty is well paced and exciting from start to finish.

The Faculty is well paced and exciting from start to finish. Modern day horror films seem obsessed with gore and violence, yet this shows how films within the genre should be made. Almost no gore is necessary, yet the film is still scary and much better because of the lack of gore. The plot is very good and the film is helped by excellent performances from all of the teaching staff. As previously mentioned, the Coach steals the show with a string of brilliant lines and encounters. Expand

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 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! Expand

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.

The Faculty has great actors, action, storyline and witty dialogue. The Faculty was made for a low budget,
but the effects look expensive because they're elaborate. Overall the whole movie is exciting and
entertaining.

I don´t know why, but this is the kind of movie that makes me feel comfortable. It could be because of the characters; all of them have a particular personality. It also could be because Robert Rodriguez is one from few directors interestedI don´t know why, but this is the kind of movie that makes me feel comfortable. It could be because of the characters; all of them have a particular personality. It also could be because Robert Rodriguez is one from few directors interested in camera movements and shots. Or because the music from the movie is good (the offspring, class of 99). Anyway, i feel good when i see this movie. Thanks Mr. Rodríguez Expand
