Flowers in The Attic Trailer: Movie Promises to Be True to Novel. Yes, Even That Scene.

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Flowers in the Attic​, the V. C. Andrews novel you read under the covers with a flashlight and against your own best interests, is getting a fresh start in January. 

The Dollanganger family is returning to the small screen in a Lifetime reboot of the 1987 film.

And where the original film glossed over the relationship between Cathy and her brother, THAT scene is included in this version. Watch the trailer now and see for yourself.

Flowers in the Attic is the story of four children who are locked away in their grandmother's attic while their mother schmoozes her way back into her father's good graces in the hopes of inheriting his money when he dies. While trapped, the two oldest children develop romantic feelings for one another--and act on them--while trying to keep the youngest two alive.

Starring Heather Graham as the mother who basically sells out her own children for the chance to be rich again and Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn as the evil, rule-making, child-abusing grandmother, this adaptation boasts a stellar cast. 

Mason Dye and Kiernan Shipka, yes, Sally from Mad Menare set to play incestuous siblings Chris and Cathy Dollanganger. 

What do you think? Will you be watching Flowers in the Attic when it airs in January?

I read that book many, many years ago and at that time I was fascinated, angry and horrified by this story. I won't say too much about it because others may want to see it and I don't want to spoil it for them but I will definitely be watching it on Lifetime.
