SCREAM
1996, Paramount, 111 min, USA, Dir: Wes Craven

Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson re-invented and revitalized the slasher genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. A Saturn and MTV Movie Award winner that spawned 3 big-screen sequels and a TV series, the box office hit provides both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts - but the victims aren't always the ones you'd expect. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Drew Barrymore are among the stars contending with the lethal Ghostface.


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.
