Description by Wikipedia

Heathers is a 1988 American cult black comedy film written by Daniel Waters and directed by Michael Lehmann. It stars Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty. The film portrays four teenage girls—three of whom are named Heather—in a clique at a fictional Ohio high school.

The film brought director Michael Lehmann and producer Denise Di Novi the 1990 Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature. Daniel Waters also gained recognition for his screenplay, which won a 1990 Edgar Award. Despite its high critical praise, the film was not a big hit in the box office but went on to become a cult classic, with high rentals and sales business. In 2006, it was ranked number 5 on Entertainment Weekly's list of the "50 Best High School Movies" and in 2008, it was ranked number 412 on Empire's list of "The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time".

The film has been adapted into a musical and as of 2016 a television series was in pre-production.
