Mr. Churner? Dare I even ask?
[Luke rises from his desk, walks up to the front of the classroom and places a rock on Mrs. Tingle's desk]
Your work, Mr. Churner, is very reminiscent of a young man who sat in that same chair some 20 years ago. He, too, had the words "No future" printed on his forehead... Do give your father my best.

The credits list Robert Gant as "Professor" but those scenes where deleted. Robert Gant never appears in the film. See more »
Kevin Williamson has shown that he can direct his vision of a movie that he has written. I think this is somewhat suspenseful and articulate. Williamson's use of vocabulary as in his other works is still by far unbelievable. Also, his introduction of the antagonist as she is walking through the hallway as students dodge her path is proving her power as being evil. This movie is also very realistic because everyone has felt threatened by a teacher like Tingle. This movie was excellent and I believe that Kevin Williamson did a great job in his directorial debut.
