More Lifetime Movie Reviews with Sam!

The other evening, I came home from dinner with a friend to find Sam on the couch.  He was, of course, watching Lifetime.  As soon as I walked in the door he hollered, "PETALS ON THE WIND, BABY!"

"What the hell is Petals on the Wind?"  I replied.

"The sequel to Flowers in the Attic!"

Flowers in the Attic is a deeply disturbing book about lies, betrayal, religious fervor, child abuse, and incest.  Even more disturbingly, it is a book for young adults.  Lifetime recently did a made for tv movie adaptation of this shudder-inducing novel, and Sam watched it multiple times.  Here, ladies and gentlemen, is Sam's review of Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic:

"One of my favorites!  Terrifying!  Positively Dickensian!

My favorite parts?  Well, you know, the grandmother - she was a fully realized character.  You feel sorry for her.  At the end when she gets locked in the stairwell, she's really HUMAN in that moment.

That girl from Mad Men did a pretty good job.  The brother was a disappointing casting decision.

This was like Sound and the Fury meets Wuthering Heights!  Oh look, it's coming on again tomorrow!"
