flowers in the atticNew on DVD and Digital from Lionsgate Home Entertainment this week is a great set that includes all four movies in the “Flowers in the Attic” series:

  • Flowers in the Attic
  • Petals on the Wind
  • If There Be Thorns
  • Seeds of Yesterday


The entire Dollanganger family drama comes together for the first time in this 4-film DVD that also includes Digital. Based on the best-selling book series by V.C. Andrews, the films star Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn (Best Actress in a Leading Role, “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” 1974), Heather Graham (“The Hangover”), Kiernan Shipka (TV’s “Mad Men”), Rose McIver (TV’s “iZombie”), Wyatt Nash (TV’s “Pretty Little Liars”), Jason Lewis (HBO’s “Sex and the City”) and James Maslow (TV’s “Big Time Rush”).

The stories of the ultimate dysfunctional family reveal a decade of dark and shocking family secrets, and for the first time, all four chapters of the Dollanganger family saga are available in one set. Relive the salaciously scandalous stories, starting with “Flowers in the Attic” – the highest-rated made-for-cable movie in 2014 (on Lifetime) – followed by “Petals on the Wind,” “If There Be Thorns,” and “Seeds of Yesterday.”

If you’re not familiar with the story, I won’t spoil it TOO much for you, other than to say it’s a gothic tale centering on the four Dollanganger siblings, beginning with the harrowing abandonment by their mother and forced captivity in a locked attic by their cruel grandmother.

Over the course of time, after years of imprisonment, their eventual physical escape into the real world reveals the emotional damage they endured – their deeply troubled relationships, disturbing secrets, and dark tragedy that will haunt the family forever.

The set is rated TV-14 with a runtime of six hours. Check out the trailer for “Flowers in the Attic.”
