Heathers (1988)

It's one thing to want someone out of your life, but it's another thing to serve them a wake-up cup full of liquid drainer.

Finally I have gotten around to watching Heather. Subconsciously I think I have avoided this movie in the belief that it is a chick flick. Certainly the opening scenes do little to disperse this opinion. However I persevere.

Thank heaven I do. Heathers is a great movie that take the idea of celebrity and popularity and mixes it with the concept of psychopathic lunatic boyfriends. Slater is excellent as the laconic madman that manages to get Veronica killing her “friends” and for a moment I was concerned that the film would play out in an ill advised Bonnie and Clyde mode.  However this is not the case and Veronica (Winona Ryder) behaves in a slightly more believable way keeping the film dynamic and interesting throughout.vlcsnap-2012-04-22-22h03m37s104

Thats not to say the movie is belivable, its a teen flick from the 80s about a clique of girls who are 75% Heathers. I mean c’mon. It is, however, very good.

If you are one of the 1% like me that have not seen it Heather is well worth a watch.
