    From the opening sequence, when the three Heather's trample on the flowers, you know you're going to be in for a special kind of film. Special doesn't begin to describe it. Heathers could easily be on of the nastiest, bitchiest and blackest teen comedies ever. It's so outrageous it's almost unbelievable at times, but it's sick and demented, and rather worryingly makes a lot of sense most of the time. It has a dream cast, and they're all perfect in their roles. Winona Ryder handles talent and beauty with ease as Veronica, whilst Christian Slater is just TOO gorgeous as JD. However, Kim Walker and Shannen Doherty are are fabulously spiteful as two of the three Heathers, perfectly capturing the malice and venom that is the essence of the film. The other was a disappointment though, she seemed pointless and nowhere near as entertaining as the other two. One thing I did enjoy though, was how the film acknowledged the airhead culture amongst some teenagers, but also challenged it with something as extreme as murder and suicide. Heathers rose above the usual trash and tried something different. The ending was brilliant, and certainly is appropriate! Heathers is definitely a teen classic, and one that will be around for a long time to come.

    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.

    Veronica (Ryder) sells out her friends to gain entry into the Heathers, self-crowned queens of the school's social set. But once installed, she becomes sickened by the cruel superficiality of it all.

    Salvation comes in the shape of new kid Jason Dean (Christian Slater), a delicious biking teen-god of grungy good looks and dark thoughts. He excites the hell out of her, especially with his offer to help sort out the bitchy Heathers. But his ideas of revenge are a little more extreme than Veronica had in mind.

    Scented with the patchouli oil essence of Goth, the film's cartoon appeal and sick humour acted as an effective antidote to all those sugar sweet high school movies of the Reaganite 80s. Watching it now, the risks it took seem tame in comparison with today's teenage fare. Fortunately it has retained its sense of fun as a black comedy for all the black sheep out there.
