Another minor bit of trivia: Heathers was somewhat influenced by (and borrowed some plot elements from) 1976's Masacre at Central High...which starred RotN star Robert Carradine, so there's another connection to that movie! [Smile]

If you look closely during the scene where Heather Chandler dies, you can see she has a copy of "The Bell Jar" cliff's notes. "The Bell Jar" was written by Sylvia Plath, who committed suicide.

Zombo.. "Massacre At Central High" is a classic!

Massacre at Central High (1976)

 -

For anyone that hasn't seen it, you might want to add it to your Halloween scary movie list. One of the stars is Kimberly Beck who later went on to "Friday the 13th" fame.

I'm definitely a big fan of "Massacre at Central High" as well...just wish it was available on DVD! I feel that both it and "Heathers," although made over a decade apart, tackled very similar ideas in an effective manner, and that both movies aged very well.

Plus, Kimberly Beck, fer shur! [Smile]

Just watched Heathers. I somehow missed this thread? Cool trivia, Valley.. watching it, I had wondered about the kitchen thing, thinking to myself "wow, that looks like the same kitchen".. ha.

I'm glad to see there's a lot of love for Heather #1! While watching the movie, I was blown away by her again. She definitely stands out. And as much as Winona Ryder is adored, I was never a huge fan of hers.. though she's super cute. But I think Kim Walker is gorgeous.
I took this picture while watching:

 -

I definitely agree about the way she delivered her lines and her role as queen B.
Christian Slater... the long coat, the black hair, ya that worked! [Wink]
I remember while watching his super short lived show, "Breaking In" he used his 'greetings and salutations' line... by the way, I read that the show was going to continue? Not sure what the deal is there...

It had been a while since I had watched Heathers....I almost forgot how dark it was. I always loved the skirts/colored leggings/flats fashion in the movie.

Love the scene where Veronica and JD are in the car, arguing... V takes the cigarette liter and burns her hand.. then JD lights his cig on her hand, too funny!! [Eek!]

as much as i love jeniffer connelly i'm also pleased she was not chosen for the role of veronica sawyer in heathers,i think winona ryder was just right in the role.
infact i think the whole cast for heathers could not have been more perfect!

i was really shocked to read about kim walkers death when sometime back i was reading up on say anything on imdb and i'd thought i'd check up on kim walker to see what else she had appeared in just to read that she had died just aged 32 from a brain tumour,very sad!.
i'm also shocked to just read from valleys great bit of trivia that jeremy applegate committed suicide .
watched say anything and heathers so many times over the years that you do sought feel like you knew these people!

Recently re-watched Heathers, for the first time on Blu-ray. Great film, and excellent print.

The movie wasn't really funny; the humor was dark, but in a sick way. I did think the social commentary was apt, even more so now than when the film came out in the late '80's.

quote:
Two stars of the movie died at an early age: Jeremy Applegate (Peter Dawson, whose character prays he will never commit suicide) committed suicide with a shotgun on March 23, 2000, and Kim Walker (Heather Chandler, who had the line “Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?”) died of a brain tumor on March 6, 2001. [/QB]
Wow. Very sad & disturbing coincidences.

That's quite trippy that Kim Walker actually died that way. Anyway, dusted off my old DVD of this and watched again the other night. And it's still a pretty enjoyable flick in that nostalgic way. But yeah, definitely pretty dated now and not quite as engaging for me now as it once was. I suppose if done right, this movie could possibly be apt for a modern day reboot.
