Elijah Wood, Clea DuVall, Jordana Brewster and Shawn Hatosy appear in the music video for "Another Brick in the Wall, part 2", performed by the Class of '99, which is featured in the film's soundtrack. In keeping with her character Stokley, Clea DuVall does not lip sync the lyrics with her co-stars. See more »
In the faculty lounge near the beginning of the film, when Mr. Tate has the line "Can we say retirement?," Mr. Furlong's green jacket can be seen next to him. However, at that point, Mr. Furlong is actually talking to Nurse Harper and her patient by the table. Furlong doesn't move next to Tate until later in the scene. See more »
You got to pick up the line. God damn it! Get off the fucking field you limp ass blow jobs!

It's a Robert Rodriguez film. It's a Kevin Williamson screenplay. You already know that it's in the same vein as'Bodysnatchers,' etc. Anybody who *doesn't* know this but saw and enjoyed the Scream flicks or the "I Know ..." movies is likely to enjoy this.
No, it doesn't really have the same underlying Red Scare theme of the original Bodysnatchers (or Arthur Miller's Crucible), although it *is* about what every modern high school movie seems to be about: how much their presumed roles imposed on teens makes their lives painful, and how great it is to unleash those strictures. Sure, it's not Bergman, but who really expects haute couture from a sci-fi horror flick? Oh, and any 'homophobia' attributed to the movie (as opposed to some of its high school student characters, just as occurs in real life) is questionable at best.
"The Faculty" is no more and no less than another entry in 'new geek cinema,' slightly more intelligent and self-referential than your standard SCI-FI Network fare. Appreciated on its own terms, or anything close to them, it's a lot of fun!
