Don’t get detention.

When your substitute teacher is actually a killer alien from outer space, spending as little time alone with her as possible is probably highly recommended.

A crackling little thriller from Denmark, this flick, also known as The Substitute, pits a group of savvy but slightly overwhelmed sixth-graders against the perpetually-in-a-bad-mood woman claiming to be their new instructor.

Their parents don’t believe their wild-eyed tales (duh, it’s a movie), which leaves the preteens to defend themselves and save the universe.

You’re not gonna call the Ghostbusters, but you are going to call the alien busters this time around.
