The Faculty Reviews

February 2, 2014
The Faculty succeeds as a youth-oriented shocker due to director, editor, and frequent camera-operator Robert Rodriguez's provocative eye and frantic pacing.

Surely isn't perfect, but it's a solid genre offering from Robert Rodriguez.
September 5, 2012
A zesty, charming sci-fi horror-thriller with better performances and far better production values than you'd expect.

April 17, 2009
The Kevin Williamson formula (rewrite familiar horror scenarios and have the characters note the familiarity) has gotten to be a bore, and in this case it makes no sense.
February 3, 2008
A crappy teen horror movie, but in director Robert Rodriguez's hands it's at least agreeably crappy.

January 26, 2006
This smart, involving sci-fi picture, set in an Ohio high school, pays homage to several genre faves, notably Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Thing.
June 18, 2002
A moviegoer looking for an empty-headed waste of time could do worse.
June 5, 2002
The sci-fi/horror genre could take a lesson from "The Faculty."
March 24, 2002
Williamson's take-it-apart-and-put-it-back-together stitchmanship has become an arduous borefest.
March 3, 2002
The Faculty consistently draws attention to its own ill-joined cracks and seams.
April 17, 2001
A decidedly average film with flashes of inspiration.

If you have the feeling you've been here before, you have.

Just whiskers away from being really snazzy, "The Faculty" still manages to make for a fun night out.
January 1, 2000
Since the codes of science fiction are different from horror's cant, the patented Williamson method doesn't make a perfect fit with the material; Faculty's fun, but less fun than it could be.
January 1, 2000
The Faculty is a witty deconstruction of sci-fi movies - and a bloody good time at the movies.
January 1, 2000
Be ashamed, Kevin Williamson. Be very ashamed.
January 1, 2000
Rodriguez puts his money into the predictable place - special effects - and you wonder where the imagination went.
January 1, 2000
What could have been an interesting update of Body Snatchers for the teen crowd becomes a very bland Robert A. Heinlein's The Breakfast Club.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

All the students were stereotypes.

Will there a bigger, better blast of pure, unpretentious, popcorn entertainment this holiday season? Not bloody likely.
