Flowers in the AtticLIfetime’s 2014 version of V.C. Andrews’ best-selling horror novel, Flowers in the Attic, scored the network its best ratings since 2012.

The TV movie tells the story of four siblings who lose their peaceful life after their father dies and their mother abandons them at grandma’s mansion. Problem is, grandma wants to keep a dark, family secret and to do that, traps the siblings in her attic.

Heather Graham (Father of Invention), Ellen Burstyn (The Exorcist) and Kiernan Shipka (TV’s Mad Men) star in the film, which had 6.1 million viewers when it debuted.

Critics weren’t completely bowled over by Flowers in the Attic, though, giving it only 47% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. That was a vast improvement of the 1987 adaptation of the book, which critics gave only 14%.

The DVD comes with the featurette, “Behind-the-Scenes With Cast and Crew.”
