  • Gary Dauphin Village Voice (Top Critic)
    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.

    Just whiskers away from being really snazzy, "The Faculty" still manages to make for a fun night out.

    Surely isn't perfect, but it's a solid genre offering from Robert Rodriguez.

    A zesty, charming sci-fi horror-thriller with better performances and far better production values than you'd expect.

  • Steve Biodrowski Cinefantastique
    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.

    A crappy teen horror movie, but in director Robert Rodriguez's hands it's at least agreeably crappy.

  • Nigel Floyd Time Out
    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.

    A moviegoer looking for an empty-headed waste of time could do worse.
