look heather :))))))))))))))

Reasons why you should watch Heathers (1988)
  • Shows how society exploits suicide for their own benefit
  • One kickass female protagonist that admits she’s done wrong in the end instead of making excuses for her behavior
  • This movie inspired Mean Girls and Scream Queens
  • A hell of a dark story line for your typical 80s high school movie 
  • Winona Ryder’s sarcasm
  • If a popular student dies, the whole school will notice. If a “nobody” dies, everyone waves it off. 
  • Three Queen Bitches™ that actually struggle with various conflicts in their lives like every other teenage student
  • Accurately portrays how grief of a fellow student’s suicide doesn’t feel genuine
  • Popular female protagonist doesn’t abandon her pre-popularity friendships
  • Chilling parallels (”Great pate, but I gotta motor if I want to get to that party/funeral”)
  • Over exaggerated but still relatively accurate caricature of brutal social hierarchy that’s high school
  • The AESTHETICS and COLOR SYMBOLISM
  • Adults are generally unhelpful when it comes to high school matters 
  • Black comedy that’s so humorous and morbid to the point where it’s sickly hilarious 
  • Portrays the lesson that killing a problem doesn’t always solve it

but like,, ok hear me out- everybody lives and they form a band called ‘Veronica and the Heathers’ and they write songs about how crappy JD is and how he sucks n stuff-
