When you think of cool teenagers, Winona Ryder and Christian Slater probably aren't the first names to cross your mind.

But in "Heathers," the two are incredibly hip. After they accidentally kill one the most popular girls in school (one of the titular three "Heathers"), they start a trend where the most admired students at Westerburg High start offing themselves -- or so it seems.

Underneath all the murder, suicide and ample black humor, "Heathers" is really a statement against teens' constant pressure to conform.

Peer pressure can be a killer, and this flick remains an effective and hilarious exposé on the subject.
