Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic Trailer: Kiernan Shipka & Co. Show the Kids Are Not All Right

Decades have passed since V.C. Andrews wrote her Flowers in the Attic novel, but a new trailer for Lifetime’s adaptation of the story shows things haven’t gotten much better for the kids upstairs.

This first look at the cable channel’s made-for-TV movie — debuting  January 18, 2014 — hints at all of the violence, mystery and naughty feelings (as well as many memorable moments) included in Andrews’ story of brothers and sisters forced to spend their formative years locked away in their sadistic grandmother’s attic.
