The Faculty is a Sci-Fi thriller about alien creatures taking over the teachers and students at a high school. The story begins with the completion of a school budget where the Principal Valerie Drake re-enters the building to retrieve her keys. She finds herself in an impromptu confrontation with the football coach, Joe Willis, who stabs her with a pencil. Drake believing she found refuge flees via the parking lot with the drama teacher, Karen Olsen. However, Olsen stabs her with scissors. Casey Connor, the photographer of the student newspaper, witnesses a bizarre creature slithering on the football field. He captures the creature and rushes to Professor Furlong’s class to show him. Upon further examination of it, they assume that it is an emerging cephalopod species. Casey later joins Deliah Profitt in the teacher’s lounge in search of a new feature story for the paper. The two witness Mrs. Olsen and Coach Willis implanting one of the cephalopods into school nurse, Rosa Harper’s ear. They also see Mrs. Brummel’s body. They flee and notify the police. Principal Drake meets the police upon arrival and convinces them that Casey is lying as a ploy to get attention. Casey and Deliah inform their friend, Zeke of the events they witnessed, and that they discovered that the teachers are under the control of alien life forms. They flee to Zeke’s house and forge a plan to eradicate the school of these dark forces. The kids realize after experimenting with the “cephalopod” that was captured earlier that these beings require water to survive. Zeke realizes that his invented drug is a diuretic and forces out water of the body and could eliminate the aliens. However, in order to destroy these creatures, completely they must discover the queen.
