Has anyone else seen "The Faculty?" The movie about the faculty of a high school being taken over by aliens and trying to take over the world? Well, I noticed that the aliens were small ampibious, tentacled creatures who entered their hosts body and took control of them (vampire leeches?). And then they required great amounts of water (blood?) to survive. After bonding with a host the creatures were extremely resilient and could bounce back even from dismemberment (Wamphyri regeneration?). They had a weakness for dessicants like caffiene (kneblash/garlic?). They could extend pseudoflesh to form tentacles and to change their shape somewhat, as shown when that one girl blocked her nasal passage and then extended a tentacle from her pinky to get rid off the caffeine drug (wamphyri shapechanging?). The mother alien could look human, but in reality was nothing more than one of those little amphibious creatures except extremely huge sized (hmmm...sounds like Shaitan!). Anyhow, this is basically a movie about Wamphyri trying to take over a high school. They should have payed homage to BL though. And the title should have been changed. Maybe, "Whoops, my teachers Wamphyri!" Something along those lines. Just some thoughts of mine...farewell.
