Alien Parasites are Invading Your High School
Notice anything strange in school lately?
Have you ever wondered if something insidious is going on underneath the ordinary looking veneer that is your school life? What would happen if your school becomes the target of an alien takeover.
The director Robert Rodriguez who also directed "El Mariachi"and"From Dusk Till Dawn" is in top form working with a stellar whos-who cast of teenage heart throbs.
The evil "Faculty" is also well staffed (pardon the pun) by the likes of Jon Stewart, Piper Laurie, Salma Hayek, Bebe Neuwirth, Robert Patrick (Terminator 2), Famke Janssen (X-babe).
Watch it. You'll be pleasantly surprised and entertained by this B-movie themed movie with a A-List cast.
The Star Studded Cast
Pre-LOTR Elijah Woods as the Nerdy Guy
Elijah Woods is one of the student who is the geeky nerd who is bullied by almost everyone on campus. But luckily he gets the girl in the end :>
Famke Janssen - the X-babe that Nearly Destroyed the World
Ms Famke Janssen is surprisingly convincing as both the pre-parasite plain mousy teacher and the sex siren (parasite include) man-eating Cougar :>
The Robot that Nearly Terminated the Termintor
Robert Patrick who was the evil liquid metal robot in Terminator 2, is spot on as the evil football coach. His transformation from the hot headed football coach to the calm and evil parasite control meat puppet is really scary.
Something Disturbing Happening in Your School?
This movie kind of reminded me of the movie "Disturbing Behavior" also about a group of misfits students who bands together against a plot to turn all the teenagers in a small town into brain washed "perfect" students.
