“Look at you: member of the honor roll, assistant to the assistant manager of the movie theater. I'm tellin' ya, Rat, if this girl can't smell your qualifications, then who needs her, right?” Amy Heckerling’s debut  — based on a book Cameron Crowe wrote while undercover at a San Diego high school — about the trials and tribulations of a group of California teenagers is one of the most heart-breaking, cringe-worthy, and funny films of the 1980s. Unforgettable career-starting turns from a young Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sean Penn as a perpetually stoned surfer, and some blink and you’ll miss them cameos from the likes of Nicolas Cage, Forest Whitaker, Eric Stoltz, and Nancy Wilson of Heart. 


ALTER is a horror brand that explores the human condition through warped and uncanny perspectives featuring horror short films, movies, series, and more.
