NEW Flowers in the Attic Movie

Book 1979
Movie 1987
Flowers in the Attic is a psychological film that first aired in 1987 based on the 1979 novel by V.C. Andrews. The new adaptation will air on Lifetime network on January 18, 2014. In the film, a mother locks her four children in an attic leaving them to be abused by their grandmother. The two oldest children develop romantic feelings for each other and have an incestuous relationship. Watch the exclusive movie trailer below.

It has been well over ten years since I originally read Flowers in the Attic. I plan to re-read it before the movie remake airs. The original film was poorly received and had a lot of differences when compared to the book. Director Deborah Chow tells Entertainment Weekly the new script is faithful to the book. We'll see. Check back here for my movie review in late January.



  1. I am shocked that Flowers in the Attic was written in 1979! I LOVED VC Andrews in high school and faithfully read so many of the books...even after she died. The Flowers in the Attic series was brilliant and I still cry when I read the last one. She did a phenomenal job.

    That sham of a movie should be deleted from life. I left the theater ANGRY because they destroyed such a classic.

    Looking forward to seeing what Lifetime does.

    1. Hey, Disco Diva! It is such a classic book by a classic author. I also read her books even after she died, until the ghostwriters strayed too far from her original writing style.

      LOL @ deleted from life. Let's hope Lifetime does it better.
