A newcomer to a Catholic prep high school falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft and they all soon conjure up various spells and curses against those who even slightly anger them.
Among the motivational banners in the school's locker room is a sign that says "The will to win comes from within" which is particularly appropriate considering the body snatcher nature of the alien invaders taking over the staff and student body. See more »

During the cast pictures at the end, the science teacher who was 'killed' in the film is shown very much alive with a patch over his eyes and bandages over his fingers. See more »
Of course the story told by this film (aliens land in small Mid-West town and start taking over the humans) is very familiar but it is still a great story and this film tells it as well as any of the others (and better than most). There is a lot of humour, many very good action scenes, and some really nail-biting suspense. But what really makes this film special are the main characters: a delightful group of funny and interesting students, who have to cope with the trials of high-school life as well as the demands of defending the Earth against an insidious alien invasion.
If you know the other films of Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn) you will find another film which displays the same wit and assured lightness of touch that makes this director's work such a pleasure.
