Can it be? Looks like your favourite black comedy of the late '80s — full of suicide, scrunchies and Christian Slater’s dazzling smile — has been remade into a glam and glitter musical.

Heathers, the 1988 cult film, is arguably the edgiest of the high school satire canon. Telling the story of two high school students who unwittingly turn suicide into a popular teen craze, Heathers makes Clueless and Mean Girls look like after-school specials.

Complete with double murders and underage terrorism, this brutal take on teenage groupthink is hardly a likely candidate for the jazz hands of musical theatre. And yet… brimming with romance, brilliantly brutal insults and teens wearing colour-coordinated powersuits to school, something tells us this creepy Tim Burton-esque tale has always been waiting to be set to music.

How very.
