Flowers in the Attic
Directed by Jeffrey Bloom
In this scandalous gothic chiller, four children move in with their evil grandmother, who locks them in the attic and subjects them to a series of terrible torments. Louise Fletcher, famous for her Oscar-winning portrayal of the sadistic Nurse Ratched in ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, plays the wicked granny, while original BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER star Kristy Swanson plays granddaughter Cathy. Based on the first of trash novelist V.C. Andrews' wildly popular Dollanganger series, this 1987 adaptation chilled audiences to the bone upon its premiere.

Some parts unrealistic that the kids would take that for so long, but its very intense and good buildup for the ending. I haven't seen this since my aunt and I watched it when I was little, brought back some memories.
What a classic. This movie scare the pants off me as a kid, and it still creeps me out to this day.
The books are better although I was 12 when I read them so take that with a grain of salt. I do enjoy this movie a lot though and I’ve watched it several times (although it’s pretty corny). I’m not sure I would enjoy it as much if I wasn’t a fan of the book series already.
I loved this classic
