The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.

It was on the set of this film that Harry Jay Knowles first got wind of Peter Jackson making The Lord of the Rings into a movie. He urged Elijah Wood to go for it even though the actor had never read the book. Which Wood duly did, ignoring the news that Jackson was largely casting British actors and videotaped his own audition. See more »
(at around 11 mins) When Zeke is in the bathroom in the beginning when he is introduced, he gives two boys free "scat", he hands it to them and both pens are facing the same way, but when his name appears, one is facing one way and the other is facing another. See more »

The female teacher who was decapitated only to have her alien-controlled head rejoin her body, is seen (also very much alive) wearing a scarf around her neck, presumably to hide the scar. See more »
The original uncut version of the film included a character named Venus (played by Kidada Jones) who was in about five scenes. All her scenes were cut. She is shown in some TV previews for the film, as well as Faculty/Tommy Hilfinger ads and commercials. She is also visible in a scene in the theatrical version, standing next to Gabe (Usher) in Mr Furlong's (Jon Stewarts) science class when they are looking at the "new species" in the aquarium.

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!
