Jawbreaker (1999)

Everything is peachy fucking keen as the Horror Queers take a field trip to Reagan High to figure out the mystery behind Liz Purr and the mysterious jawbreaker lodged in her throat! In what is admittedly an unusual film to cover in a horror podcast, Joe and Trace grab their Big Sticks and dive into the legacy that Darren Stein's Jawbreaker has left behind.

How did this critical and commercial failure become the cult phenomenon that it is? Did it really rip off Heathers? Or was it ripped off by Mean Girls? Does it really matter? Why is Rose McGowan so perfect? And what if it had been a horror film, as Stein originally intended?

In this week's game: Who would win in a fight: Cruel Intentions' Kathryn Merteuil (Sarah Michelle Gellar) or Jawbreaker's Courtney Shane (Rose McGowan)?
