Identity-2003-movie-6

SYNOPSIS: Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they’re being killed off one by one.

The-Faculty-bluray

SYNOPSIS: Students suspect that their teachers are aliens after bizarre occurances. REVIEW: A mash up of “The Breakfast Club” and “Invasion Of The Body Snatchers”, Robert Rodriguez’ “The Faculty” is a fast paced & witty 100 minutes of action that involves the attempted takeover of Earth by parasitic aliens.
