The Faculty ★★★½

The Faculty is a fun amalgam of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Thing, The Breakfast Club, and several other influences from which the movie cribs. It can come across as unoriginal (and, let's be fair, it kind of is), but the collaboration of Kevin Williamson and Robert Rodriguez at the height of the late 90s teen slasher craze (kicked off by Williamson and Wes Craven with 1996's Scream) makes The Faculty play out with a certain fun energy that other Scream knockoffs of the time couldn't emulate (looking at you, Urban Legend).
