A muddled and unpleasant adaptation of a book that lots of women really like.
Audience Reviews for Flowers in the Attic
I love the book, read it many times growing up. The movie does not stay true to its source, which is a real shame as the ending does ruin it.
It's kind of weak as adaptations go, I think it's a little miscast and it hasn't aged very well, either.
Kristy Swanson is an okay Cathy and the grandmother is also effective. The boys fail to convince and the mother is weak (her acting, I mean. Obviously the character is weak).
It is watchable and the story is so horrific it does draw you in.
I know another adaptation has been made and also one of the sequel, so I am very interested to see those and see if they were able to improve on this.
Weird and creepy and I dislike the bitch granny, then four innocence kids' mother.
Scarred me for life when i saw it on TV as a kid.
