THE FACULTY
1998, Park Circus, 104 min, USA, Dir: Robert Rodriguez

To the students at Harrington High, the principal and her posse of teachers have always been a little odd, but lately they've been behaving positively alien. Controlled by otherworldly parasites, the faculty try to infect students one by one. Cheerleader Delilah (Jordana Brewster), football player Stan (Shawn Hatosy), drug dealer Zeke (Josh Hartnett) and new girl Marybeth (Laura Harris) team up with their classmates to fight back against the invaders.


BLADE RUNNER 2049
2017, Warner Bros., 164 min, Dir: Denis Villeneuve

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for decades. Nominated for five Oscars including Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Production Design. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said, “What’s remarkable about BLADE RUNNER 2049 is how good it is. The bottom line is indisputable: As shaped by Villeneuve and his masterful creative team, this film puts you firmly, brilliantly, unassailably in another world of its own devising, and that is no small thing.”


THREADS
1984, Severin Films, 112 min, UK/Australia/USA, Dir: Mick Jackson

As current as it ever has been, THREADS supposes that nuclear war breaks out and examines the effect it has upon the citizens of Sheffield, England. Shot in a cinema verite style and pulling no punches, THREADS captures the harrowing experiences that could happen if the bomb is ever dropped. A far cry from “duck and cover” educational films, this is a chilling look at the wrath of atomic annihilation.
