Director: Michael Lehmann Cast: Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, Shannen Doherty


A deliciously nasty black comedy, Heathers is set at a cliquish high school in Ohio. The most exclusive of those cliques is the Heathers, comprised of the prettiest and most popular girls in town. The group's leader is the manipulative Kim Walker, who orchestrates the humiliation of anyone who fails to meet her standards. Eventually, Heathers member Winona Ryder begins to exhibit a conscience; together with her hardcase boyfriend Christian Slater, Ryder plots to avenge all the unfortunate victims of the group. Before long, Heather (Kim Walker) ends up dead along with Kurt and Ram, with poignant suicide notes posted near their bodies.

I can't believe you all don't own a copy of this movie yet!! Why are you waiting?! This has and always will be my number one movie of all time. If you like sexy, thrilling and killing with a whole lotta justice thrown in for good measure then you can't fail to love this film too. Breakfast Club meets Natural Born Killers!!

Heathers is a pretty good movie. It's got a nice story line to it, and the acting is well done. It's got your stereotypical dumb jocks, your depressed, obese teens, your clumsy nerds, and the preppy, popular girls that everyone wants to slaughter. Veronica is sick of the Heathers making fun of people and even though they're her friends, she wants them dead. They basically go on a killing spree of the Heathers and the two stupid football jocks and they cleverly write suicide notes that make sense to go along with their deaths to cover up their tracks. This is a pretty original movie that's well thought out and well written; props go to Michael Lehmann.

If you haven't seen this film, you are crazy. I've Loved this movie for years! This movie is exciting, suspenseful, and everyone should see it. If you like gorgous mysterious guys you'll love this movie. J.D. (Christian Slater) is the definition of bad boys!

This exagerated black comedy kept me yearning for more. The sattire is hilarious, especially if you grew up in the eighties. This film possesed my mind for many days the first time I saw it. We are all Veronica Sawer.

This movie was really good. Christian Slater is unbelievably sexy and so is Winona Rider. I mean come on any movie that involves actors like them needs to be watched. The teen suicide and all the darkness about this movie was very entertaining.

I absolutely love this movie!! It's a look at how scary a place highschool can be when you let others dicate your life. Winona Ryder is excellent in this movie, and it is a welcome change from all the melodramatic teen movies of its time.

This pitch-black comedy seems just like any adolescent comedy about the stuck up girls at school, and the new guy love intrest... Then the killings start. Not serial killings, no, Winona Rider and Christian Slater team up as a murderous duo, that set up murders as suicides. As more and more of the teens "off themselves," the story actually blends from a farce revolving around death, to a teenager perspective view on why actual teenagers commit suicide. But don't think for one second that this film is any less than 100% comedic farce, with comic releif around every turn. This is one wild ride that you will remember long after its over.

This movie was marginal at best. While I did enjoy Wynonna Ryders performance, it seems to be her standard pseudo 'out of touch' teen role she's used for years.It's just a played out role with a few unique swists, who cares. Mr. Slater's performance was nothing to write home about either. The actors never made me believe what the director intended. While not a must have, this film does deliver some off tilt humor in a sorta black comedy way, but at the end of the day, I'm just not buying it.
