Posted June 6, 2014 01:24 PM by Webmaster

Granted this first adaptation left much to be desired, but I LOVE Louise Fletcher and she was wonderful in this role. She always was an incredible performer. Day one for me just to have in my collection to revisit now and again. Especially now that Lifetime is adapting the entire V.C. Andrews Dollanganger series. Except for the 5th and final novel; "Garden of Shadows." If y'all haven't read the books you definitely should.

Not sure yet. It's good but the new TV version was closer to the adaptation. If for some reason they release the Lifetime movies on BD as well, I might buy this to have a complete set... so to speak. Then again... I'll probably break and get it either way .

@Torgon - They already released the Lifetime adaptation to Bluray and the pre-order is up for its recent sequel premiere; "Petals On the Wind." Only on DVD though and according to the media heads at Lifetime, there aren't any plans for bluray currently. However, given that the DVD's were priced at $8.99 it isn't that bad. I figure better to have them than not at all. Also the Lifetime version of "Flowers in the Attic" dropped in price to $6.99 for a while. So keep an eye out on their releases for the Dollanganger series :-)

I've heard this book is pretty awkward, and I'll never seen the film. Don't know why, just never got around to it.

So, I was checking out Image Entertainment's website for more info about the upcoming Blu-ray release, and it says the run time for the Blu-ray is 91 minutes, while the run time for the DVD is 93 minutes. Sigh. I really hope it isn't edited : (

Here's a link to the product page...

@4EverJohnnyBoy - Can you provide a link for the Blu-ray release of Limetime's "Flowers in the Attic"? I can't seem to find it. Thanks : )

@Donnaholic89 - Sorry about the typo in my previous post, I meant to type DVD (not bluray lol.) They only released the Lifetime 'Flowers' on DVD and to correctly reiterate what I wrote previously, currently they only plan to release these films on DVD. No plans for bluray currently :-/

@4EverJohnnyBoy - Oh, it's okay : ) I hope once Lifetime is done filming the series, they will release a Blu-ray box set. I know the movies aren't the greatest, but I love the books and I think it's cool to see them turned into movies.

@Donnaholic89 - Yeah I know what you mean, the books are a great collection of literature and sadly for those of us seeking proper adaptations we probably won't ever get them unless either HBO or Showtime were to pick up the rights to the material and adapt it themselves. I am very glad Lifetime is putting their stamp on the material but sadly they can't properly touch on it the way HBO/Showtime could. As for a bluray box set, I wouldn't hold my breath on it. They have to gauge whether it is cost effective to produce a collection like that and not many people go for the double-dip and when you're talking about 4 separate DVD releases that's asking viewers to purchase them all over again. They'd have to have some insane special features to warrant it. Anyway I can't wait for the next two installments, especially "Seeds of Yesterday." Darren Stein is adapting that one and I've loved his work for years now. He was the writer/director of the 1999 classic "Jawbreaker" and recently directed; "G.B.F." You should check them out if you haven't yet.

@Donnaholic89 I just looked and the dvd runs 91.5 minutes, so it should be the same. I've seen the movie in HD on the MGM movie channel. It looks as grainy as it did when I saw it theatrically. So, even if the blu-ray is true to source, I'm sure someone will complain about the transfer.
