The Faculty (1998)

The Breakfast Club meets Aliens. Jon Stewart eats a bad shrimp with tentacles and turns into a zombie alien teacher. Ththe-facultye alien teachers hound the breakfast club kids so much, the kids turn to drugs. Elijah Woods would have been hysterical to party with. Is that Usher playing football? (Better than his acting.) Liquid metal from T2 works with Costanza’s boss at K-UGER Industrial Smoothing, to zobify all the teachers. Framke gives some crazy tongue action. Points taken off for making Selma Hayek look so plain. Cthulhu squid monster rules! Wonder drug kills aliens dead – ‘Raid’ apparently a main ingredient. Moral to the story, drugs is good. No homework for the weekend kids, yeah!

Directed by Robert Rodriguez

Stars Josh Hartnett, Elijah Woods, Shawn Hatosy, Jordana Brewster, Clea DuVall, Laura Harris, Robert Patrick, Bebe Neuwirth and Piper Laurie. (plus others already mentioned)

A little hokey but in the end there’s one great tentacled monster!
I give it a 3.8 out of 5 on the Dagon Scale of Cthulhu worthy movies.

  1. I’ve grown to like this movie more and more over the years. I used to own a copy on dvd but I misplaced it. I think it’s on Netflix currently. I may catch up on it there. Good review. Right to the point! Thanks.

  2. Knowing that this is a Rodriguez flick, it’s a bit disappointing considering how original and crazy he can be. However, here, it felt more like he was on auto-pilot where I couldn’t really tell if he really cared about having this material jump off of the screen or not. Good review.
