Saturday Matinee: Heathers

“Heathers” (1988) is a dark high school comedy written by Daniel Waters and directed by Michael Lehmann. “The Heathers” of the title refers to Westerburg High School’s elite clique of popular girls, whose  newest member is Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder). Fed up with the Heathers’ constant peer pressure and obnoxious social circle she becomes increasingly attracted to J.D. (Christian Slater), a mysterious, rebellious – and possibly psychotic – new student. This 80’s cult film was most likely inspired by a thematically similar (but tonally different) 70’s high school film called “Massacre at Central High“.
