Westerburg High School's elite clique of popular girls is "The Heathers," comprised of the powerful Heather Chandler, the green-with-envy Heather Duke, and the cowardly Heather McNamara. Rounding out the foursome is Veronica Sawyer, who is so fed up with the Heathers and the entire peer pressure cooker that she starts running with J.D., a mysterious - and possibly psychotic - motorcycle-riding newcomer. But what begins as their noble effort to rid Westerburg of its bad apples ends up taking a real toll. And their teen rebellion produces a serious and mounting body count. Starring Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty.
Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty star in this cruelly hilarious dark comedy, which became one of the biggest cult classics of the `80s.
Cast: Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, Shannen Doherty
Maybe one of the most important movies ever made. A narrative that is still important to this day.
As a very young kid, I was obsessed with this film. As an adult, it does not disappoint. It is one of the quintessential examples black comedies. It not only holds up with every viewing but becomes richer with social context and the intricacies of each actor's performance. I cannot express how wonderful this movie is!
Great 90's film.
