‘The Faculty’ review

“The Faculty” – Teacher creatures attempt to take over Herrington High, but the students fight back in Robert Rodriguez’s that gives an extra chill to the phrase “Please report to the principal’s office.” The film blends all the elements of a good horror thriller: a mysterious story, likable and unlikable characters, dark atmosphere, pounding music, impressive special effects, important themes, and nice use of symbolism to convey the hell of high school. The only low point is that one scene is borrowed – OK, stolen – from “The Thing.”

– John Hansen, NDSU Spectrum, January 1999
