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.

good movie and twisted.
Classic gothic horror story, love.
I've never read the book, but I've heard about it a lot. Gave the movie a try today and considering that it was made in 1987, it's not that bad. It's actually pretty good. Willing to bet that the book is way better and probably has a lot more that wasn't allowed in the movie. This is not what I'd call "Horror" but it's definitely creepy and disturbing. I'd watch it again, and I'll probably check out the book at the library sometime to see how much better it is.
Obligatory the book was better, but this movie was amazing. Really made my skin crawl for some reason.
Such a sad movie. But i love the sights of Crane Castle, it's on my bucket list to see. Ipswich MA.
