Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: [[spoiler:Marybeth tells Casey that she can make everyone part of something greater]] when in fact the aliens actually ''have'' been making things seemingly better. All the students and teachers get along much better after infection. Even the fighting teen couple in the school get along better after they're infected.

* SuckySchool: There is a scene early on that takes place at a faculty meeting, where they are deciding how to divide the school's budget. Much to the teachers' chagrin, money that could be used for buying new textbooks or putting on a SchoolPlay other than ''OurTown''[[note]]A play that is traditionally staged without a set of any kind, and as few props as possible. Theater geeks will [[GeniusBonus get a chuckle]] from this.[[/note]] is instead directed towards the football team because, as Principal Drake explains, [[SeriousBusiness they live in a football town]]. She doesn't think the football team deserves all the attention and funding, but it's what the ''parents'' want.

* FiveManBand: Not the variety used on this site, but the one used in ''TheBreakfastClub'' -- the princess (Delilah), the criminal (Zeke), the brain (Casey), the athlete (Stan) and the basket case (Stokely). There's also the new girl (Marybeth) [[spoiler:who turns out to be the BigBad]].
** If you're going by the "standard" FiveManBand formula:
*** Stan: TheHero
*** Stokely: TheLancer
*** Zeke: TheBigGuy, with elements of TheSmartGuy.
*** Casey: TheSmartGuy, although he turns into TheHero during the climax.
*** Delilah: TheChick
*** Marybeth: The SixthRanger. [[spoiler:Actually the SixthRangerTraitor.]]

** Mr. Furlong, after failing to hit on Nurse Harper, grumbles that [[spoiler:he'd rather "get a pen in his eye." Later, after he's been converted, Zeke does precisely ''that'' to him.]]

* TeacherStudentRomance: The infected Miss Burke hides in the back of Zeke's car, then attempts to seduce him when he's speeding away from the infected football team. [[spoiler:Zeke then slams the car into a school bus, sending her through the windshield and decapitating her. She gets better.]] The final scenes imply that they HookedUpAfterwards, which is at least marginally less {{squick}}y because he's been held back and is, presumably, of age.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's not confirmed if [[spoiler: Principal Drake]] and [[spoiler: Mr Furlong]] are actually dead. Both were seemingly killed off during the attacks. But Miss Burke was decapitated and turns up alive at the end.

* BillingDisplacement: R&B star Usher is [[CoversAlwaysLie featured prominently on the poster despite appearing in only five minutes of the movie.]] None of the other cast members were all that famous ([[RetroactiveRecognition at the time]]), while Usher is, well, Usher.
