The TFH Grab Bag! continues at Trailers from Hell, with director Karyn Kusama introducing 1980s high school revenge classic "Heathers."

The original Mean Girls, this acerbic black comedy from director and TFH guru Michael Lehmann gave the complacent moviegoers of 1988 a much-needed hot foot. Winona Ryder stars as the only member of a four-girl clique who is not named “Heather” and whose ruthless clannishness just might be taking a murderous turn. Co-star Christian Slater does his best Jack Nicholson impression as the kind of bad boy girls love to love. As is usually the case with such nervy material, Heathers did poorly at the box office but over the years has gained considerable stature as a cult film of the first order.
