Flowers in the Attic: The Origin
looks to capture the harrowing tone of the initial

Flowers in the Cranium

novel that started it all in 1979. The controversial story touched on taboo subjects, including incest and horrid child abuse that ultimately destroys the lives of Olivia’south grandchildren. The trailer so far seems to accept that tone hammered downwardly with an air of horror to Olivia’south investigation of Foxworth Hall. By the finish, it’due south likely we’ll all feel at least a twinge of sympathy for someone originally painted every bit irredeemable.

Flowers in the Attic: The Origin
begins ambulation on Lifetime on July 9. Check out the trailer beneath to meet Olivia and Malcolm and catch a glimpse of the mysteries of Foxworth Hall:
