While the celebrity rate of the teens is about 50/50, I always forget just how packed the faculty roster is with minor stars and character actors. Almost worth watching just for the never ending "hey, isn't that..." factor.
I remember catching this in theatres on Christmas day and enjoying it immensely. It holds minor cult status but I often forget about it, giving it a watch every 5 or 6 years and continuing to enjoy the ride, forgetting enough details that it still surprises. Body snatching stories are always fun, and while the young cast doesn't quite live up to the established actors hamming it up this one works well, even with the half baked "Drugs yay?" element.

I've always enjoyed this movie more than I think I should or will. It hits all the notes in the correct order and manages to not be appalling or cringe-worthy in any major ways.

I will always remember seeing this in the theater with a lot of teen boys in attendance and there being an audible groan when Marybeth stops
of stepping out of the shadows in the all together.
