Today in Horror History

Heathers released on this day, 1989

Released March 31, 1989

In the same vein as the infamous Poltergeist curse (two of the children from the movies died at young ages, one at 22 who was murdered by her boyfriend and the other at 12 of septic shock), two cast members of Heathers died in strangely prophetic ways:

Jeremy Applegate played Peter Dawson who stated “I don’t think I could handle suicide.” Applegate committed suicide on March 23, 2000 at the age of 35.

Kim Walker, who played Heather Chandler, had the line “Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?” Walker died of a brain tumor on March 6, 2001 at the age of 32.
