Although not as serious or sophisticated, this zesty film rekindles fond memories of "Heathers" of some years back in its dark view of teenagers. Courtney (Rose McGowan), the icy undisputed queen of Reagan High, comes up with what she insists on calling a "clever prank" even after it goes lethally awry.

"Dexter" is about as good as evil can get. The Showtime series' titular character is a sociopath who is driven to kill. His adoptive father, Harry, a cop, taught him to channel his blood lust so that he only murders other murderers. In following his father's honor code, Michael C. Hall's Dexter fashions a type of life for himself while hiding slides of each victim's blood in his apartment's air-conditioning unit as trophies.
