Westerburg High School’s elite clique of popular girls is “The Heathers,” comprised of the powerful Heather Chandler, the green-with-envy Heather Duke, and the cowardly Heather McNamara. Rounding out the foursome is Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder), who is so fed up with the Heathers and the entire peer pressure cooker that she starts running with J.D. (Christian Slater), a mysterious – and possibly psychotic – motorcycle-riding newcomer. But what begins as their noble effort to rid Westerburg of its bad apples ends up taking a real toll. And their teen rebellion produces a serious and mounting body count. Shannen Doherty co-stars in this cruelly hilarious dark comedy, which became one of the biggest cult classics of the ‘80s.

I already owned a copy of "Heathers" when this edition was released so I hesitated to buy it, but I ultimately caved in and got it.
And boy was I happy I did so.
First off, the locker is a fantastic idea for a rerelease of this movie. So many movies don't even try to capture the essence of the film in their rerelease packaging but I really think the marketing & design departments went over and beyond for this one.
Included in the locker were two DVDs and a Blu Ray. The film itself is same old same old but the special features disc includes two documentaries and a few other extras. I don't own a Blu Ray player as of yet so I haven't been able to watch the Blu Ray version but I'm sure the quality is amazing.
The discs were inside of a shockingly realistic yearbook from 1988, profiling the trends and such from that year. Also included was a fake Algebra II book that held a t shirt inside. The t shirt is quite large, but I'm sure it'll shrink a little after being washed.
The magnets are fantastic! I put them on my fridge so every time I get something to drink I can laugh a little.
All in all, this is the perfect box set for such an iconic film. Every element captures the essence of the film; there's no random items the production company just threw in. This is a set for the mega fans, like myself, that want a blue locker so sit on their bookshelf.
Before proceeding, I would like to thank Gary F. Taylor for his excellent review of this film.
I'll also note that one of the visual bits seems to be an allusion to the horror-comedy Hotel Hell.
Behind the over-the-top dark funniness, there is a genuine feeling for the traumas that lurk behind the plain walls of high school - appropriately ultra-plain in the film.
I showed the film to friends just after the CO theatre massacre, and I find this film more interesting than the repetitious and exploitative reportage that is all too typical of TV. Compared with TV, the film sheds more light on the motivations of disturbed young people who commit attrocities, although it doesn't explore the copycat phenomenon.
