What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that The Faculty is a 1998 sci-fi horror movie in which teens discover the teachers and students of their high school are being taken over by a monstrous alien form. There's horror movie violence, including a teacher who has turned into an alien and is stabbed in the eye with a pen and has his fingers lopped off with a paper cutter. A teacher is stabbed through the hand with a pencil and is later stabbed "to death" with scissors. This same teacher is later shot in the head by the protagonists, who aren't sure if she's human or alien. Frequent use of "f--k" by adults and students; other profanity frequently used. A sullen teen girl who keeps to herself is labeled a "dyke" by the popular students and is frequently insulted with that slur. Another lead character is physically and verbally bullied at every turn, including getting slammed repeatedly into a flagpole groin-first. One of the protagonists is a drug dealer who sells an amphetamine-type drug called "Scat." When "Scat" is discovered to be deadly to the aliens, the lead characters snort it to prove that they haven't become aliens, then act high. A student tries to initiate an affair with a teacher, offering her cherry-flavored condoms; when she becomes an alien, she makes advances on him and references the condoms. The film also shows cigarette smoking, brief nudity from afar, and brief marijuana use.
