If you thought your high school experience was a drag, just hit ‘play’ on the 1988 film Heathers, and you’ll be singing a different tune. Starring Christian Slater, Shannon Doherty, and ModCloth favorite Winona Ryder as reluctant in-crowder Veronica Sawyer, Heathers is campy, dark-comedy about the perils of being in the popular crowd. Set in suburban Ohio, Heathers follows a clique of four girls — Heather I, Heather II, Heather III, and Veronica — as they reign over Westerberg High, terrorizing their underlings — and each other — all while clad in the most very ‘80s fashions.
Rife with padded shoulders, scrunchies, and fully-blown hair, Heathers is an ’80s-style soft-focus dream come true, and every high-schooler’s ultimate nightmare. Whether you’re taking notes on Veronica’s school-girl-chic monocle and loafers, or pining for Veronica I’s power shoulders and pleats, there’s a killer look for just about everyone. As Halloween draws ever closer, why not grab a few of your favorite frenemies, pop Heathers into the VCR, and take notes on the group costume possibilities that lie within this campy clique flick.
1980s, fashion in film, film, movies
Believe it or not I just watched this movie for the first time a few months ago! Very cool!
By the time I saw Heathers, it was mid-90s and those clothes were already ridiculous. Didn’t stop my friend and I from making red scrunchies and taking lunch time polls for the school paper. Yes, for real. Love that movie, it’s still so dark, too.
Christan Slater was so cool in this movie!
I remember that movie. Is it sick to say I found it funny?
It is a dark comedy. It’s supposed to be funny in a kind of screwed up way. So no, not any sicker than anyone else who likes this movie. I, for one, love it.
I literally just watched this movie on Saturday! The blog article on Winona Ryder made me want to watch it SO badly 😀 I love Heathers oh so much <3
I thought it was funny when it came out, but then again I was Winona Rider’s age as well. I remember them saying, “F me gently with a chainsaw, Veronica.”
Heathers is actually being made into a Broadway musical! They’re currently in workshop stages but it looks like Broadway is it’s true destination!
