"Heathers" is as air-headed as the titular group, it's humor is as gross as the school cafeteria food, and it's dialogue is as homophobic as the dumb jocks. It may be known as the queen of teen angst flicks, but despite the body count, the angst feels fairly contrived. If you want some dark teen angst films, go watch "The Dirties," "Donnie Darko," or "Mean Creek" instead.

I wasn't expecting to love this movie as much as I did, a great cult classic, with dark humor and an strange mix between a comedy and a thriller. A young Winona Ryder giving one of her bests.

Somehow this movie has gotten even better over time. I liked it in the 80's but watching it again reminds me of just how razor sharp it is. Great writing.

A black humored chick flic, Heathers is a witty comedy with a dark message. Classy characters make this movie an all-time cult classic.

Really crazy, funny, dark, and violent with abrupt pauses in the storytelling that sometimes bring the energy down but pretty powerful for what it is and great fun to watch.

Did not like the storyline.

Darkly entertaining and wickedly funny, Heathers is a prime example of retro-perfection in the teen comedy genre all due to the appealingly lovable and quirky performances from Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

This movie literally became an instant classic... one of the original dark comedies... have been in love with this movie for almost 3 decades now... Slater & Ryder was hilariously phenomenal in this film... their roles on here literally put them on the map cinema wise... & everyone should see this movie at least once!

Twenty-eight years after its theatrical release, Michael Lehmann's high school-set dark comedy Heathers has aged as well as the effectiveness of drain cleaner. With a vivid color palate, exceptional cinematography from Francis Kenny and a deadly satirical wit from screenwriter Daniel Waters, Lehmann pulls this together with direction that is funny, scary, surrealist and dramatic making Heathers an eclectic assortment of taste. Featuring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater-the embodiment of the high school class system and the urge to break free-the two actors were made for these roles and perfectly portray Lehmann's tonal shifts in strides. Looking back at the film and knowing what has come after, it is easy to see the apparent influence Heathers has had on the high school genre ranging from 1995s Clueless to 2004s Mean Girls all the way to television with FOX's 2015 show Scream Queens. While homage has been done in other properties, nothing is quite like what we see in Heathers. It's violent, dark and has a cynical sense of humor that is rarely put this well together in a finished product that is as unshakable as those impressionable high school moments.

After hearing so many positive things about this movie for over twenty years, I finally got around to watching it. Wow, what a major letdown. Complete garbage, start to finish. Ridiculous story, and horrible acting from everyone except for Slater.

Here is a high school film that actually treats high school like the dangerous, hilarious, political drama that it so often can be.

I thought I would love it. But... didn't love it. I see what they were trying to do, but I didn't enjoy it.
½ March 5, 2016
A stunning message centering on the life of a teenage girl, Slater and Ryder work wonders on screen together.
