    Synopsis


    Flowers in the Attic
    Based on the popular novel by V. C. Andrews, Flowers in the Attic centers on such chancy topics as incest and misguided religiosity. When their father is killed, teenagers Cathy (Kristy Swanson) and Chris (Jeb Stuart Adams), together with their preteen siblings Cory (Ben Ganger) and Carrie (Lindsay Parker), are put in the care of their religious-zealot grandmother (Louise Fletcher). Grandma has never approved of the wanton lifestyle of the kids' mother Corinne (Victoria Tennant), and she has no intention of extending her love to the children. Even worse, Corinne is anxious to win back the love of her estranged father, who, knowing that Corinne and her late husband were cousins and thus incestuously linked, would never approve of any children from this union. Thus, the four children are locked in their grandmother's attic, far from the view of their unforgiving grandfather. How the kids cope with their imprisonment is the heart of the film. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      I had seen this when I was younger, just once, and it never came on again. The story is really twisted, but this is definitely a classic to have in your collection. The acting and film on which the movie was shot just make this a classic. There are a lot of lines to quote out of this gem.

      Decent film if you were a fan of the book

      If you were a fan of the V.C Andrews Flowers in the Attic series, then this film might be of interest. It's not perfect as several significant changes have been made to the story, most notably the ending. But the overall tone, mood, and atmosphere are spot on. Also Christopher Young's score is outstanding. The Blu-ray transfer is serviceable but nothing to write home about.

      The acting isn't great nor is the production value, but this a good escape for ninety minutes. I remember reading this book in high school (which is considerably better than the film). The picture quality could have been better, but overall not a bad purchase if you find it discounted.

      I loved this movie when I was younger, but it is a little dated/over the top watching it as a grown adult now. If you like the remake that aired on Lifetime, you should also like this (although the movie ending is different from the tv version)

      I remembered this movie title from many, many, many years ago, so when I saw it on Blu-ray and for a good price I bought it. Some older movies aren't as good to me today as they were to me 30 years ago and this is one of them.

      Morbid yet Fascinating

      Flowers in the Attic is not for the faint of heart. While not really an 'action' flick, it does have you on the edge of your seat to see what might happen next to the wonderful family starring in the film.

      My girlfriend and I had never seen this but she had read the book. We decided to buy it and turned out to be a really good movie. Based on her judgement it was a good summary of the book.
