Are we going to prom, or to hell?
With the stickiest pitch-black tone, the original high school caustic clique classic is back with a 30th anniversary restoration (and oh, how it seems like it was only yesterday…)
The deliciously snobby Heathers, whose job is being popular and shit, cruelly rule the school, along with fringe member Veronica (Winona Ryder), who is gradually awakening to the idea that her IQ might be put to better use than lipgloss selection, cow-tipping and ritual humiliation… Enter cooler than thou rebel with a fucked-up cause JD (Christian Slater, in the Christian Slater brand defining role that would see him through the better part of the next decade). Is he a sociopath? Of course he is!
Ascerbic, black, black 80s teen high school comedy at its finest. Look out for drain cleaner cocktails at the bar, and don’t forget to wear your red scrunchie!
