Born Heather Michele O’Rourke on 27 December 1975 in Santee, San Diego, California, Heather entered American cinematic pop-culture before she entered first grade. She was sitting alone in the MGM Commissary waiting for her mother when a stranger approached her asking her name. “My name is Heather O’Rourke,” she said. “But you’re a stranger, and I can’t talk to you”. When her mother returned, the stranger introduced himself as Steven Spielberg. She failed her first audition when she laughed at a stuffed animal Spielberg presented her with. He thought she was just too young (she had just turned five), and he was actually looking for a girl at least 6 years old, but he saw something in her and asked her to come in a second time with a scary story book. He asked her to scream a lot. She screamed until she broke down in tears. The next day at the commissary, Spielberg told her and her family, “I don’t know what it is about her, but she’s got the job.” She instantly became a star overnight and was easily recognized at her favorite theme park, Disneyland, and everywhere in California. In the years that followed, Heather was a familiar face on TV in “Happy Days” (1974) (1982-1983), “Webster” (1983) (1983-1984), and “Still the Beaver” (1985) (1986-1987), three shows in which she had recurring roles. In 1986, the highly anticipated sequel to her first movie, Poltergeist (1982), Poltergeist II: The Other Side (1986) debuted in theaters; it was her riveting performance in this film that cemented her a place in Hollywood history. In January 1987, Heather began to have flu-like symptoms and her legs and feet swelled. She was taken to Kaiser Hospital, and they confirmed it was only the flu, but when symptoms continued, they diagnosed her as having Crohn’s Disease, a chronic inflammation of the intestine. She was on medication throughout the filming of her next project, Poltergeist III (1988), and her cheeks were puffy in some scenes. She never complained during filming and did not appear sick to fellow cast members. When filming temporarily stopped in June, Heather and her family went on a road trip from Chicago, to New Orleans, to Orlando and all the way back to Lakeside where they lived at the time. Heather was well until January 31, 1988, Super Bowl Sunday. She was unable to keep anything in her stomach and crawled into bed with her parents that night, saying that she didn’t feel well. The next morning, February 1, sitting at the breakfast table, she couldn’t swallow her toast or Gatorade. Her mother noticed her fingers were blue and her hands were cold. Kathleen called the doctor’s and was getting ready to put her clothes on when Heather fainted on the kitchen floor. When the paramedics came in, Heather insisted that she was “really okay” and was worried about missing school that day. In the ambulance, Heather suffered cardiac arrest and died on the operating table at 2:43 p.m. at the tender age of 12. Of all her achievements, Heather was proudest of being elected student body president of her 5th grade class in 1985.During all the horrors that proceeded while filming Poltergeist (1982), only one scene really scared her: that in which she had to hold onto the headboard, while a wind machine blew toys into the closet behind her. She fell apart; Steven Spielberg stopped everything, put her in his arms, and said that she would not have to do that scene again. (Cinefantasque, July 1988)In real life, she loved to go shopping. But according to her mother Kathy, shopping with Heather was a tremendous effort. The girl had to have everything match, from shoes to earrings. She also loved to make and eat sweets, and was the student-body president at her school. For a pet, she had a St. Bernard. Her home life did not, ironically, include the viewing of certain films.particularly not horror films.Fellow cast members described Heather as having a calming influence on the set. They also described cast meetings with her: everyone would be quickly leafing through the script, while Heather was sitting calmly. Being able to memorize 60 pages of script an hour, she would have already memorized the entire script.
Heathers? Can you PLEASE give me a summery of Heathers! I Want all deatails nd agood long biography to!
Veronica (Ryder) sells out her friends to gain entry into the Heathers, self-crowned queens of the school’s social set. But once installed, she becomes sickened by the cruel superficiality of it all. Salvation comes in the shape of new kid Jason Dean (Christian Slater), a delicious biking teen-god of grungy good looks and dark thoughts. He excites the hell out of her, especially with his offer to help sort out the bitchy Heathers. But his ideas of revenge are a little more extreme than Veronica had in mind.Scented with the patchouli oil essence of Goth, the film’s cartoon appeal and sick humour acted as an effective antidote to all those sugar sweet high school movies of the Reaganite 80s. Watching it now, the risks it took seem tame in comparison with today’s teenage fare. Fortunately it has retained its sense of fun as a black comedy for all the black sheep out there.
A deliciously nasty black comedy, Heathers is set at a cliquish high school in Ohio. The most exclusive of those cliques is the Heathers, comprised of the prettiest and most popular girls in town. The group’s leader is the manipulative Kim Walker, who orchestrates the humiliation of anyone who fails to meet her standards. Eventually, Heathers member Winona Ryder begins to exhibit a conscience; together with her hardcase boyfriend Christian Slater, Ryder plots to avenge all the unfortunate victims of the group. Before long, Heather (Kim Walker) ends up dead along with Kurt and Ram, with poignant suicide notes posted near their bodies.

Country Club Keith ——————————————————————————-From the opening sequence, when the three Heather’s trample on the flowers, you know you’re going to be in for a special kind of film. Special doesn’t begin to describe it. Heathers could easily be on of the nastiest, bitchiest and blackest teen comedies ever. It’s so outrageous it’s almost unbelievable at times, but it’s sick and demented, and rather worryingly makes a lot of sense most of the time. It has a dream cast, and they’re all perfect in their roles. Winona Ryder handles talent and beauty with ease as Veronica, whilst Christian Slater is just TOO gorgeous as JD. However, Kim Walker and Shannen Doherty are are fabulously spiteful as two of the three Heathers, perfectly capturing the malice and venom that is the essence of the film. The other was a disappointment though, she seemed pointless and nowhere near as entertaining as the other two. One thing I did enjoy though, was how the film acknowledged the airhead culture amongst some teenagers, but also challenged it with something as extreme as murder and suicide. Heathers rose above the usual trash and tried something different. The ending was brilliant, and certainly is appropriate! Heathers is definitely a teen classic, and one that will be around for a long time to come.
