I preferred the first movie.  The scenes were more chilling, imho

i liked that one too.  you could really feel the suspense and misery.  

also, this petals movie didn't really feel like 1970.  i know that lifetime has a limited budget but i couldn't really transport myself.  the family kitchen in chris and cathy's house looked too modern, too.

Exactly!  Everything just looks too crisp and clear--even though her brother did have a Heil Hitler look to his ass in the second movie LOL
 
I found an interesting site:
 
 
 
Excerpt:
 
Added Bonus!
 
 

Sy Levin, the only surviving producer of the Flowers in the Attic movie, had a different actress in mind for Cathy:

"I used to manage Dana Plato on the TV show "Different Strokes." She brought the book to my attention. She wanted to play Kathy [sic]. I read the book and bought the option rights for Dana to play Kathy [sic]. That was in 1978 [book was published in 1979]. As you know was not able to get it funded for 8 years. Wes Craven I knew and he was the first one I approached with it. Now Dana and Gary passed away and Todd is alive somewhere, who knows. This is the beginning of a nightmare on getting it made. I will discuss more in details at a later date. If you get a chance to watch the film you will see a made cleaning the window of the mansion. That wonderful lady is VC. God rest her soul. I wanted her in the picture some how and that is what I was able to do for her. You know she is permanently in a wheel chair. So we had to prop her up to make it look real."

For those of you who did not read Petals on the Wind but saw the movies, Cathy was f*cking the doctor that took them in, and Carrie gave Julian oral. Chris did not almost get married but was f*cking the dark haired dancer, Yolanda.

Oh and Cathy and Chris didn't f*ck in Petals on the Wind, he'd begged for it a bunch, they kissed, almost did (While Carrie slept next to them) but Cathy couldn't.


so the end of the movie is not he end of the book?  cuz they reaaaalllly took it there.


No, the ending was real. I meant the sex scene at the start of the movie.

finally finished watching. 

it turned out pretty good actually. 

all the actors played their parts well. i felt so bad for poor carrie :(

watching made me remember why i used to root for chris and cathy. sh*t is gross but they went through so much in that attic that the movie never even touched on that their relationship halfway kinda sorta makes sense.

 now i wanna go see if i can find copies of the books at the goodwill so i can read them all over again.

I'm actually re-reading the Cutler series now


The Cutler series is my favorite. I think it was the first I read. I need to re-read, it's been awhile.
