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.

A classic that is way creepier than I remember.
This is definitely based on whether you grew up with the books or not.
Great movie from my childhood. Watched as an adult and still like it very much.
Such a heartbreaking film.
True 80s classic. Whether you read V.C. Andrews in middle school/junior high or not, this is one that's definitely recommended.
