Heathers Reboot Red Band Trailer


The 1988 film Heathers was an early cult classic in every sense of the word: a pitch black comedy about high school that revolved around two outsiders literally killing all of the popular kids and making it seem like suicide. It is the kind of thing that you would think could never be made today and yet for some reason the Paramount Network has decided to reboot it as a TV series. The first trailer for the show has arrived online (a red band one at that) and it certainly goes out of its way to be shocking, but ultimately it feels a bit like Glee minus the music. I don’t know that fans of the original will have much interest (although Shannen Doherty does appear in the pilot), but this certainly has the potential to be the next 13 Reasons Why. Heathers premieres on March 7th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    This looks so, very, televisual. I can barely look at it.
