This dark comedy from 1989 was a good showcase for Winona Ryder, playing a high school girl brought into a clique of bitchy classmates (all named Heather), and Christian Slater, doing his early Jack Nicholson thing. While Ryder's character mulls over the consequences of giving up one set of friends for another, her association with a new boy (Slater) in school turns out to have deadly consequences. Director Michael Lehmann turned this unusual film into something more than another teen-death flick. There is real wit and sharp satire afoot, and the very fusion of horror and comedy is provocative in itself. Heathers remains a kind of benchmark in contemporary cinema for bringing surreal intelligence into Hollywood films. --Tom Keogh

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.
