Heathers Movie Review

"My teenage angst bullshit now has a body count."

Never before has murder been so much fun than at the hands of Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, perfectly cast as foils for one another in one of the blackest comedies on film. A must-see for the Gen-X set, Heathers is a scathing lambasting of the American teen in the late 1980s, but its presence will be timeless.

Imitated, but never equalled. A classic. Now available on multiple DVD release formats.
