Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I’ll be sharing my brief experience at The Faculty screening. This special anniversary screening was organized by Drop the Mic that is ran by Wes and Diego. They also run a dope podcast where they discuss old and new movies from all genres. When I heard they were doing a screening for this film I was sold! The Faculty is a horror sci-fi classic in my book. It is directed by the talented Robert Rodriguez. I am a huge fan of his, one of my favorite films is From Dusk Til Dawn and I loved the series. I also love Desperado and Planet Terror! I grew up watching The Faculty as a kid fell in love with the movie. The premise was dope, it was a modern teenage version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
This film introduced actors who would move on to become A list celebrities. It was Josh Hartnett’s and Usher Raymonds first film. We also get Elijah Wood and Jordana Brewster who ended up doing their own popular film franchises (Lord of the Rings and Fast & The Furious). There are a lot of quotable lines in this film. I watched it so many times I have them memorized lol. A lot of teenage angst, you get a feel of the 90s era with the fear of teenagers doing drugs. Also the soundtrack is amazing! You get tracks from the Offspring, Creed and Oasis. This film is 90s in a capsule, you get the aesthetic and vibe of how it was back then.
Definitely a 90s nostalgic film and still one of my favorites! It was awesome to have finally seen this on the big screen since I was a kid when this came out only saw it on TV. Thank you to Drop the Mic for organizing this screening! It was an awesome event! They also had Faculty Merch that was made for this event which was very dope!
