January 16, 2014
This Sunday, Lifetime is set to debut its star-studded update of the creepy 1987 thriller, Flowers in the Attic. Check out our exclusive peek at Heather Graham in the made-for-television movie, above.
Based on the 1979 V.C. Andrews novel of the same name, the Lifetime film revolves around four children who are hidden away by their mother (Graham) in an attic following their father's death. Their mother, motivated by a quest to nab the family fortune, leaves the children in the home, owned by their grandparents, and begins to visit less and less. Meanwhile, the captive kids are subjected to the sadistic whims of their grandmother, played by Ellen Burstyn.
The roles of the two eldest children are played by Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) and Mason Dye, and their characters end up forging a taboo bond in order to endure their brutal treatment.
The thriller premieres Sunday, January 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
