Flowers In The Attic DVD Review

This includes today’s latest release, Flowers in the Attic, which is out on Blu-Ray for the first time ever!

After her husband dies in an accident, widower Corrine Dollanganger, played by Victoria Tennant, moves her four children back into the home that she left before they were born. Upon returning, the four children are locked away in the attic by their grandmother, leaving the oldest of them to become their sole provider, as their mother becomes distant.

All of which leads it to earn this rating of…

3 ½ Stars
