Directed by: Robert Rodriguez

You know who else is in this movie? Salma Hayek, Famke Janssen, Bebe Neuwirth, and USHER. But no, for some reason, The Faculty will always be “that movie with Jon Stewart in it”. It’s not even like it’s the only movie he was in, either! DAMMIT, PEOPLE.
Alien fish monsters land in a high school, infecting all the teachers with evilness. A group of kids find themselves in an Invasion of the Body Snatchers situation where they’re the only ones left around not being controlled by aliens. Luckily, they discover that there is only one thing that can kill the monsters: DRUGS!
Yes, this movie is exactly the premise of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but you know what? I’d rather see a recycled version of that than a lot of other stupid movies they keep remaking. That’s not a very good argument for the movie, however, I think that fits with how much one can actually argue for The Faculty.
