Is Heathers based on a true story?
Waters has said that the secret to his script of Heathers was that it was based in real life. The screenwriter said he “stole” a good amount of the movie's one-liners from kids he knew in real life as a teen, especially from his coworkers and young campers when he worked as a summer camp counselor.
Why does Veronica burn herself in Heathers?
Veronica may save the school, but she's also a self-loathing masochist–at one point, she burns herself with a cigarette later as a means of contrition. More importantly, she's complicit in the suicide of her ex-boyfriend, and she rejects the social ladder altogether.
What is the meaning of Heathers?
Heathers is an allegory for the troubled artistic relationship between lead singer Paul Westerberg and guitarist Bob Stinson in the band The Replacements; that's why the school in the movie is named Westerberg High.
Do all the Heathers die?
As of Are We Going to Prom or Hell?, a total of 22 deaths have happened over the course of 10 episodes.
