I am cheating a little here since Heathers could be considered a dark comedy but Christian Slater does play a sociopath so it counts. The three Heathers are at the top of their high school’s social hierarchy and Veronica gets sucked into their clique out of self-preservation. The Heathers are like those girls in high school that were total bitches but were popular because people feared them, we all had those girls 😀 Veronica is just that girl who gets sucked into committing a murder, forging some life ruining love notes and like I said, dating a sociopath. The only problem is that she hates the Heathers and how they treat her but knows that it’s safer on the inside than the outside.
Enter, JD who coerces Veronica into serving alpha-Heather a mug of drain cleaner accidentally killing her. While Veronica does feel bad, she gets caught up in assisting JD with covering the murder up and making it look like a suicide. She soon realizes that even though alpha-Heather is out of the way, another Heather will soon take her place and rule the student body through terror. Their killing spree spirals out of control and leads to Veronica faking her own death so that she can give JD a taste of his own medicine. The wild ride concludes with Veronica thwarting JD’s plans to blow up the school.
Though the plot is pretty over the top, I do think that anyone can relate to the eat or be eaten high school survival mindset. Even if you weren’t friends with these girls, you didn’t want to be on the outs with them. I definitely recommend, it’s dark so take it for what it is and the era during which it came out.
