* In ''Film/TheFaculty'', several of the students (being sci-fi fans), realise that the strange goings-on at the school resemble the ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''. Though they correctly work out that the 'infected' are actually part of a greater 'queen' organism (and what happens should they find and kill it), they fail to realise that the queen is actually [[spoiler:The New Girl]] and not one of the more obvious suspects. The 'queen' even asserts that they should stop resisting her, since this plot ended in them winning even in fiction (the pod people in the aforementioned Body Snatchers). Though Genre Savvy, Casey comes up with a quite amazing conspiracy theory regarding aliens: he asks whether sci-fi itself is a tool for the authorities to inure the public to the existence of aliens, [[PlausibleDeniability just so nobody would believe it if it really happened]]. Stokely is unsurprisingly not convinced in the slightest, but thinks it's a cool idea.
