Midnight Double Feature #3 – Michael Lehmann’s “Heathers” and Mark L. Lester’s “Class of 1984”
JD in “Heathers”: “Chaos was what killed the dinosaurs, darling.”
Two classics from the 1980s for you in Midnight Double Feature #3. Teen angst and bad behaviour go just that little bit further in Michael Lehmann’s “Heathers” and Mark L. Lester’s “Class of 1984”. Both films look at teenager life in a way that would make John Hughes cower behind the sofa. Cynical, dark, unsentimental, at times funny, at other times quite frightening, these two films paint an alternative picture of what it means to grow up.
