Flowers in the Attic 1987
The Dollanganger family is shattered when the father of the house dies, leaving them destitute. The only hope lies in their mother Corinne returning and winning favour with her dying father who disinherited her after she left home. Once there, the cruel and autocratic grandmother takes the four children and locks them in a room in the attic. Their mother goes along with this, telling them to wait until she is successful in her entreaty. However, as days draw into months, their mother’s visits become scarcer and they are sometimes forced to go without food for a long time. Managing to find a way to sneak in and out of the attic, they find that their mother is planning to marry another man and is now sprinkling arsenic on their food to kill them off.

Author Virginia C. Andrews had a best-seller with her first novel, the Gothic horror story Flowers in the Attic (1979), which was purportedly based on a true story.

This story had a great deal of potential, perhaps not in the horror genre as current define but certainly as a psychological thriller. Sadly, the movie shies away from what made Flowers in the Attic such a hugely popular book - namely, the incestuous sex that began between the two older children.
