Flowers In The Attic Remake
One of the first series of grown-up books I was allowed to read was by the author V.C.Andrews. ‘Flowers In The Attic’ led to ‘Petals In The Wind’, ‘If There Be Thorns’, ‘Seeds of Yesterday’ and ‘Garden of Shadows’. A series of books that starts with the twisted story of the Dollanganger children who are locked in the attic by their self-centered mother and evil grandmother and turns into a story of jealousy, tragedy, survival, and revenge.
First published in 1979, V.C.Andrews quickly drew an almost cult-like following with the book ‘Flowers In The Attic’ that became a movie in 1987, but many of the dark and twisted elements of the book were left out.
But don’t expect the remake of ‘Flowers In The Attic’ to leave those seedy elements out. In this remake of ‘Flowers In The Attic’ that will make it’s debut on Lifetime on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 7pm CT, the crazy factor of this story will be cranked up, which should make the V.C.Andrews traditionalists much happier than after the original movie. Mason Dye, who plays the oldest son, Christopher, says,
We stay very true to the book.
Take a look at the Lifetime movie trailer that will be airing on Saturday, January 18, 20014, and compare it to the original movie trailer for ‘Flowers In The Attic‘ from 1987. (And you thought YOUR family was crazy!)
