Even today, comedies don't often come as dark as HEATHERS, a delightfully twisted piece about high school alienation and social structures that has deservedly earned a devoted cult following (and has subsequently been adapted into a cult stage musical). HEATHERS' eagerness to disregard any conventional boundaries of good taste and smash any taboo is its greatest strength, and its game cast rises to the occasion, particularly Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. Demented in all the right ways, HEATHERS gives audiences the unique sensation of laughing and gasping simultaneously.
Michael Lehmann is a filmmaker best known for the cult his HEATHERS as well as HUDSON HAWK, THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS & DOGS, and 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS.
