‘Heathers’ Exposes the Dark Heart of High School [The Lady Killers]

“Are we going to prom or to hell?”

What’s the most important decision a teenager can make? Is it what to do with 5 million dollars two days before aliens blow up the planet? Is it what kind of corn nuts make the best pre-fraternity party snack? According to Michael Lehmann’s dark cult comedy Heathers, the most important decision a teenager can make is whether or not to die by suicide. But what if it’s not a decision at all? What if a hot killer couple blasts through the halls of their suburban high school dressing up their murders as altruistic revenge? The Lady Killers conclude Bad Romance month by putting on their red power scrunchies and fucking each other gently with chainsaws on a very special episode covering one of the hottest killer couples of all time.

Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder) may be so “very,” but she’s also very much over her bitchy friends. Heather Chandler (Kim Walker), Heather McNamara (Lisanne Falk), and Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) are worshiped at Westerburg High School and they’re only juniors. Unfortunately Veronica’s new boyfriend, a troubled outcast nicknamed J.D. (Christian Slater) doesn’t like her mean girl friends and pulls Veronica into a war with the Heathers in hopes of sewing chaos and putting the popular kids in their place. But can murder disguised as suicide ever lead to a greater good? Does JD actually want to make the world a better place or has this new power couple become another head of the poisonous snake?

Hosts Jenn AdamsMae Shults, Rocco T. Thompson, and Sammie Kuykendall will tackle these questions while chatting about Heather Chandler’s frat party delusions, Heather MacNamara’s ridiculous pseudonyms, and Heather Duke’s questionable motives while crushing on a dreamy bad boy with a problematic plan. The conversation takes a serious turn as the group discusses teenage suicide (don’t do it!), bullying, absentee parents, and their own experiences with adolescent death. Would Veronica kill without JD? Would JD kill without Veronica? Is mineral water making a comeback and has there ever been a hotter game of croquet? So call us when the spaceship lands and join them on the road to prom or hell. After all …

Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs, darling.
