19. Jawbreaker (1999)
Although considered a black comedy movie, the typical clannish trio of proud, arrogant and superficial girls is very present in this similar movie. This clique played by Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart and Julie Benz becomes responsible for a prank gone horribly wrong, when they accidentally kill one of their members and most popular girl in high school. Despite the fact that it is poorly rated, this clash between high school sweetness and innocent youth with this irreversible deathly act gives this movie a darker and different tonality which together with the 9o’s colourful costumes and Rose’s devilish character, is nevertheless very interesting to watch.
