    "HEATHERS 30th Anniversary Restoration is released in UK cinemas from 8th August and on digital and on demand from 20th August.

    In order to get out of the snobby clique that is destroying her good-girl reputation, intelligent teen Veronica (Winona Ryder) teams up with a dark sociopath, J.D. (Christian Slater) in a plot to kill the cool kids in what is one of the decade’s defining cult classics of 1980s cinema.

    Veronica is part of the most popular clique at her high school, but she disapproves of the other girls' cruel behaviour. When Veronica and her new boyfriend, J.D. confront clique leader Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) and accidentally poison her, they make it appear a suicide. Soon Veronica realizes that J.D. is intentionally killing students he does not like. She races to stop J.D. while also clashing with the clique's new leader, Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty)."

    Widely acknowledged as a true cult classic of modern American cinema, Heathers has captured the imaginations of troubled teenagers the world over with its acerbic satire of the sugar-coated high school movies of the 1980s...

    At Westerburg High School, an elite clique of snobby girls known as “Heathers” reign supreme. Smart and popular, Veronica (Winona Ryder, Stranger Things) is a reluctant member of the gang and disapproves of the other girls' cruel behaviour. When Veronica and her mysterious new boyfriend, J.D. (Christian Slater, True Romance), play a trick on the clique leader, Heather Chandler (Kim Walker), and accidentally poison her, they make it appear a suicide. But it soon becomes clear to Veronica that J.D. is sociopath intent on vengefully killing the school’s popular students. She races to stop J.D., clashing with the clique's new leader, Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty), and leading to an explosive final confrontation with her troubled former lover.

    Directed by Michael Lehmann, Heathers pushed the teen comedy into dark and nightmarish territory and is distinguished by the career defining central performances of its stars Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The film is presented here in an exclusive 30th Anniversary 4K restoration with a wealth of extra material, providing unprecedented insight into the making of this hilarious and shocking film.

    I thought Arrow was usually region-free? Guess I'll wait for a US release.

    The film of the 80s? Shame we're not going to get that tv series now. Not that it looked like being very good but I thought it had an interesting riff on the premise.
