Ah, the 1980s — a decade defined by Rubik's cubes and Ray-Bans, MTV and hair metal bands and more pop culture milestones than we have time to reminisce about. It was also the golden age of high school movies and while we adore them all (Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), there's one dark comedy in particular that we can watch over and over. Yep, we're talking about Winona Ryder's gem, Heathers. The 1989 cult classic is the newest addition to a long list of our favorite childhood movies receiving a theatrical revival.

Heathers: The Musical is set to debut off-Broaway sometime next March — and, with any luck, it will have the same sardonic humor and wit as its predecessor. We're hoping for a scruchie-wearing, croquet-playing extravaganza. There's no word yet on who will be cast in the production, but we wouldn't mind seeing a Christian Slater cameo, that's for sure. To tide you over until then, catch the flick on Netflix Instant Play. And, don't be too surprised if the catchphrase "What's your damage" works it way back into daily conversations.
