Directed by Michael Lehmann
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.

Heathers is at once stylish, brutal and satirical and may be one of the first horror comedies perfect for the masses. This movie is Mean Girls meets Kill Bill before either of those movies existed.
...this movie has not aged well at all...
All other 'high schoolers are horrible' movies, bow before Heathers. Some elements have creaked with time, but this is still the Gen-X classic bound to kill any notion of high school camaraderie John Hughes might have given you.
I FUCKEN LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! A classic.
