Great stuff, and a real classic. Black comedy with a great caste clearly enjoying themselves. Sharply scripted and lots of twists.

I love Heathers. It's kind of like if The Breakfast Club ended with a knife fight instead of a makeover

An all time favourite this - it has dated to be sure and one of the pleasures is the late 80s zeitgeist, but this film has many themes. Black comedy is at the heart of it but plenty of pathos and action too. It delves into a whole range of issues re: middle class pretensions and parenting and teenage insecurities. It is well constructed - the pace of the film never sags and there are a ton of subtle touches eg the representation of hierarchy through colour.... to top it all every great film needs a good ending and Veronica sees it through with the riposte to "veronica you look like hell..." - few times in cinema that an actor/ actress looks genuinely cool and this is one. Good soundtrack and lifetime performances from Christian Slater and Winona Ryder - this is a truly original film.

Heathers is one of the greatest teen comedies of all time, if not the greatest. It takes a satirical poke at all other teen comedies (John Hughes in particular) by looking at all the sterotyped characters that we've come to know and love (or despise). Then JD and Veronica (Slater and Ryder) start killing off all of the cliched characters and forging suicide notes for them.
The dialogue is snappy and incredibly witty. Although some of the fashions now look a bit dated, this is the teen comedy by which all others should be judged.
A classic.

one of slaters best films. a dark comedy that leaves you shocked and wanting more. this film is near impossible to compare to any others, the best i can do is say it's the breakfast club but with murder.

Veronica is an ex geek. She went from being an awkward high IQ person to become someone beautiful and desirable. She's also just become a member of the top clique in school -- The Heathers (so called as the other 3 members are called Heather).
The Heathers constantly belittle her and require her to belittle others if she wants to stay in their group. She finds solace in a boyfriend. Together they start committing murders. Veronica, for it's her story, has to then decide what she really wants.
The characterisation was reasonable and so was the acting. Some aspects of the second half weren't convincing which is why I've deducted one star.
It's an interesting take on the traditional teen movie examination of belonging, friendship, life, love and finding out who you really are.
