    Anyone remember that series of books and the movie? It's been remade into a tv movie and will be on Jan 18th. The author, V.C. Andrews, died in the 80's but her estate hired a ghost writer and books with her name on them are still being published all these years later. I read five or six of her books years ago. Movie looks good!



    The New 'Flowers In The Attic' Trailer Is All Kinds Of Crazy Good

    Lifetime has cranked up the crazy in the new trailer for their upcoming version of "Flowers in the Attic."

    V.C. Andrews' original dark, terrifying and incest-filled novel was published in 1979, and later turned into a campy cult movie nearly a decade later. Now Lifetime has come to give the twisted tale of the Dollanganger children the faithful adaptation it deserves.

    Check out the trailer above which shows Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn competing for Mother of the Year, and Kiernan Shipka ("Mad Men") lusting after her own brother.

    And you thought your family was dramatic!

    Actually, the '88 movie was so bad that it was good.

    I thought this new version was very good, especially Ellen Burstyn's performance. The MGM channel was showing the 80's movie with Louise Fletcher and I watched it because it had been so long since I'd seen it. Like you said, it was so bad it was good, but each version had a different ending, and I can't recall how the story actually ended in the book.
