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.
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
A zesty, charming sci-fi horror-thriller with better performances and far better production values than you'd expect.
Tim Brayton - Antagony & Ecstasy
Dean Essner - Sight and Sound
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.
Steve Biodrowski - Cinefantastique
A crappy teen horror movie, but in director Robert Rodriguez's hands it's at least agreeably crappy.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
Dean Essner - 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.

The sci-fi/horror genre could take a lesson from "The Faculty."
Dwayne E. Leslie - Boxoffice Magazine

Williamson's take-it-apart-and-put-it-back-together stitchmanship has become an arduous borefest.
Tom Meek - Boston Phoenix
The Faculty consistently draws attention to its own ill-joined cracks and seams.
Peter Matthews - Sight and Sound
A decidedly average film with flashes of inspiration.

What could have been an interesting update of Body Snatchers for the teen crowd becomes a very bland Robert A. Heinlein's The Breakfast Club.

The Faculty is a witty deconstruction of sci-fi movies - and a bloody good time at the movies.
Urban Cinefile Critics - Urban Cinefile
Another smart and pop-culturally hip film from Williamson.

Rodriguez puts his money into the predictable place - special effects - and you wonder where the imagination went.

Be ashamed, Kevin Williamson. Be very ashamed.
