One of the essential teen films of the 1980s, HEATHERS is an endlessly quotable, subversive dark comedy that not-so-gently f***ks the conventions of a high school film with a chainsaw. It’s a film that calls out so much of what makes the high school experience a toxic one: stereotypes that have no basis in reality, the personas we put on to deny our true selves, and the exploitation of others for personal gain. The film even amusingly explores how comfortable people are pretending that they are progressive once queer individuals are dead when they have no issue loathing them while alive.

Veronica (Winona Ryder) is part of the most popular clique at her high school, but she disapproves of the other girls' cruel behavior. When Veronica and her new boyfriend, J.D. (Christian Slater), confront clique leader Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) and accidentally poison her, they make it appear a suicide. Soon Veronica realizes that J.D. is intentionally killing students he does not like. She races to stop J.D. while also clashing with the clique's new leader, Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty).

FLAMING CLASSICS: SMOKING IN THE GIRLS' ROOM
After SUMMER CAMP, It's time to go back to school. The second edition of Flaming Classics is SMOKING IN THE GIRLS' ROOM! The series features classic films set in the battleground of High School. We are reclaiming the high school as a queer space. Featuring SAVED!, HEATHERS and JAWBREAKER, this series is a salute to the bad girls who refuse to follow the rules!
