Some will probably group this horror movie with all of the others into a combobulation of the original frighteners; Halloween for example. But with its writer and director, and the fact that it's not a sequel, I felt it had more potential.
The Faculty is a sci-fi thriller/horror movie. So if you haven't seen it, don't expect Scream, or I Know What You Did Last Summer; however, if you enjoyed those movies, I think you will also enjoy this one.
Aliens are invading the school, and want the students' participation. In this Body Snatchers pla-yoff, everyone is a possible alien, and almost no one can be trusted.
The Faculty offers great directing (although the lighting in the first 25 minutes is very bad). Robert Rodrigez, director of El Meriachi, Desperado, knows what he doing, and some of that award winning style interpretation is evident as you watch the movie. The writing is very key, but doesn't contain some of the more cheesy outtakes, as the story was not conceived by Kevin Williamson, but by two other writers.
All in all, The Faculty is a good movie. It was pleasing to see that horror movies of the 90's do have potential and is a movie I will be seeing again, one that I will have in my DVD collection for sure.
If you are a horror movie fan, don't miss this one; like you would anyway. If you're reluctant because of previous, bad, horror movies just know that this one strays from the cheesy nest and is actually impressing.
