THE FACULTY

    Part of Midnight Movies

    When some very creepy things start happening around school, the kids at Herrington High make a chilling discovery that confirms their worst suspicions… Their teachers really are from another planet. As mind-controlling parasites rapidly begin spreading from the faculty to the students’ bodies, it’s ultimately up to the few who are left — an unlikely collection of loners, leaders, nerds and jocks — to save the world from alien domination. Featuring a veritable who’s who of ‘90s heartthrobs, including Clea DuVall, Josh Hartnett, Jordana Brewster, Usher, and Elijah Wood alongside sinister instructors Robert Patrick, Famke Janssen, Jon Stewart, Bebe Neuwirth, Salma Hayek and Piper Laurie. And who could forget that extremely 1998 soundtrack with cuts by Creed, Garbage, Oasis, The Offspring, Soul Asylum, Sheryl Crowe, Shawn Mullins, Stabbing Westward, and alt rock supergroup Class of ‘99 (consisting of members of Alice in Chains, Rage Against the Machine, Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros, and Collective Soul) formed solely to cover Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” for the film? Is it ‘90s nostalgia overload? You decide!

    “Movies don’t come any more review-proof than THE FACULTY, a rip-snorting hunk of giddy, self-aware genre trash… Might well become a pulp classic. Don’t expect sober grown-ups (be they critics or other cultural watchdogs) to share the enthusiasm, though.” —Dennis Harvey, Variety (Dec 27, 1998)

    “Pitching a concept so high — INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS meets John Hughes' back catalogue — it needs clearance in international airspace… A blatant mixture of affectionate teen satire and sci-fi cliché that enjoyably reinforces how much you know about movies.” —Empire Magazine (Dec 24, 1998)
