Ever wondered what would happen if your high-school teachers were replaced by aliens… Ever wondered what would happen if the guy who wrote Scream collaborated with the guy who directed Desperado for a loose remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers… Ever wondered what would happen if we re-watched The Faculty and recorded a podcast about it… Yes, The Faculty! Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Williamson’s 1998 teen sci-fi thriller that makes The Breakfast Club look like, well… like someone took the characters from The Breakfast Club and put them in a 1998 sci-fi thriller. Does the movie work today? Is Josh “Pearl Harbour” Hartnett charming, or just squinty? What parallels are there between this teen flick and the acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad? Whatever happened to that Jon Stewart guy? Joined by Alexandra West, who writes the horror blog Scare Tactic, we answer these questions and more!
