    This hip and edgy thriller from the director of From Dusk Till Dawn and the writer of Scream and Scream 2 sizzles with a hot young cast including Elijah Wood (Deep Impact), Josh Hartnett (Halloween: H20).

    When some very creepy things start happening around school, the kids at Herrington High make a chilling discovery that confirms their worst suspicions: their teachers really are from another planet!

    As mind-controlling parasites rapidly begin spreading from the faculty to the student`s bodies, it`s ultimately up to the few who are left - an unlikely collection of loners, leaders, nerds and jocks - to save the world from alien domination!

    Also starring Robert Patrick (Terminator 2), Famke Janssen (Deep Rising), and Jon Stewart (Playing By Heart) in a great cast - don`t miss the chilling excitement of this unpredictably smart, full-on, scary hit!

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    Was not sure about buying this DVD, but it`s a decent
    film, and worth watching if you like this sort of thing. With a pretty sized cast, both young and old, it`s the typical teen flick
    with a bit of sci-fi. Visually everything is fine with some good effects. Sound is also good, nothing spectacular. Extras, a big let down, with only scene selection! Surley more could have been added. Overall a decent film with some familiar faces, and some up and coming stars? Something a bit different.
