As a millenial, I can say that the 90s were the best time to grow up in. So many things from that time have had a great impact on the pop culture, especially movies and TV. The 90s gave us Buffy, Pokemons and MTV. And the 90s gave us the best teen movies ever. From “Cruel Intentions” to “Clueless”, here are the top 10 iconic teen movies from the 90s that are still legendary after all these years.
“Cruel Intentions” (1999)
This movie showed us an incredible transformation of Sarah Michelle Gellar. A do-gooder Buffy the Vampire Slayer transformed into a manipulative, twisted-minded teenager Kathryn Murtagh who decides to put her step-brother’s seduction skills to test by challenging him to seduce an innocent girl Annette.
“Can’t Hardly Wait” (1998)
Whether it was the best of times or the worst, everyone remembers their last year of high school. Living the last night of high school like there’s no tomorrow is pretty much sums up the plot. Drinking, partying, laughing, crying, falling in love and breaking up – this movie has it all.
A group of teens who love horror movies are forced to relive all the horror movie cliches in real life. They get chased by a serial killer in the now famous Ghost Face mask. It’s like high school isn’t awful enough that you have to make it a total nightmare.
“The Craft” (1996)
A new girl Sarah who is looking for new friends joins the group of outcast girls who happen to have witch powers. Unfortunately, things went south when Sarah realizes that the girls are using their powers to do evil. The movie that started out as a thriller with a drop of comedy ended up as one of the darkest teen movies ever made.
