Description Edit

When we heard that Lifetime was adapting V.C Andrews' 1979 novel, Flowers in the Attic, for the screen, we were a little shocked. It's sort of like remaking The Godfather or RoboCop—if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The original 1987 film version, written and directed by Jeffery Bloom, who also directed three episodes of Columbo, is a tour de force of high camp. With all due respect to Heather Graham, who plays Corrine Dollanganger in Lifetime's reboot, nothing will ever quite live up to Victoria Tennant's comically overwrought performance in the original.

A new generation of hate-watchers are sure to be introduced to this dirty, dirty story of incest and abuse when Lifetime's version airs this Saturday at 8 p.m. Sadly, most of them will never have experienced the pure joy of the 1987 masterwork, which Scott Weinberg of calls "a muddled and unpleasant adaptation of a book that lots of women really like." To wet their appetite, we produced a masterwork of our own: Nine Reasons to Love Flowers in The Attic (1987).
