Tattlers, I am not sure if this cult classic film actually needed to be remade.

But it has.

Flowers in the Attic, a 1980s tale by V.C. Andrews about a mother who locks her four children away in an attic for two years, to inherit a fortune. The children are tortured by their evil grandmother which ends in both death and love between brother and sister.

Once played by Kristy Swanson and Louise Fletcher, the remake which premieres on the Lifetime network January 18th, 2014, will star Mason Dye and Ellen Burstyn.

“The script is faithful to the book. Or, to put it more bluntly: ‘Will there be incest?’ Yes,” said Dye.

Burstyn played such an evil character that it effected her when not filming saying, “I’ve been completely drained by the end of the day. I’ve been sleeping 11 hours a day. My psyche must be trying to clear it.”

Tune to Lifetime network on January 18th, 2014 to watch Flowers in the Attic.

But first watch the original on Netflix.
