Mason Dye, Kiernan Shipka
The first trailer for Lifetime's highly-anticipated remake of Flowers in the Attic is here, and indicates that Flowers may set a new standard for Lifetime movies.
The best and worst TV reboots
The movie is an adaptation of V.C. Andrews' racy, incest-laden 1979 novel, the first in a series, about a group of siblings who are forced to live in secret in their grandmother's attic after their father is killed in a car accident. It stars Ellen Burstyn as the grandmother, Kiernan Shipka (a.k.a. Sally Draper on Mad Men) as older sister Cathy Dollanganger, and Heather Graham as the children's mother.
Check out the trailer below, set to a creepy cover of Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine." Will you watch Flowers in the Attic?
Flowers in the Attic will premiere on Lifetime on Saturday, Jan. 18.
