Flowers in the Attic 1987 93 PG 2.0 out of 5 ducks
After the death of her husband, Corrine takes her kids Chris, Cathy, Cory and Carrie to live with her parents in an old mansion. Corrine tells the kids their grandpa doesn't have long to live, and she was disinherited years before, so hopes to get back on his good side to inherit his fortune before he dies. Grandma tells them mom's crime -- she ran off with her uncle, who is the kids' dad. (Grandpa doesn't know the kids exist, and grandma plans to hide the kids from him and keep them locked up one room.) Corrine is punished with whipping from a bull whip, and the children are warned of a similar fate if they step out of line. Corrine tells the kids of secret stairs to the attic, which they explore and clean up as hide-out (the room at least has windows, and they turn it into a place where Corrine can practice ballet and they can play dolls); Corinne's visits become infrequent. Chris and Cathy have an unnatural closeness for siblings, and grandma catches them in bed, and grandma smashes the music box as punishment (the one dad gave Cathy before his death). The food is coming less frequently, and grandma sees the kids closeness as a sin, and she punishes Cathy by cutting off her hair; little Cory is getting sicker. Chris nourishes Cory by cutting his arm and letting the boy suck his blood. The try running away once, mom stops by and is happy to be back in the will, but grandpa isn't dead yet. Cathy gets Corrine, finally, to take Cory to the hospital, but she soon tells the three that Cory died of pneumonia; we see the gardener putting dirt into one of four graves dug in the backyard. Chris figures out the powdered sugar on the cookies is hiding arsenic (Corrine is putting it there). They discover Corrine is getting remarried that night. Chris finds a copy of the will, showing if she had kids from the first marriage, Corrine will be disinherited (they kids figure they were supposed to die). As Corrine is marrying Bart, the kids interrupt the ceremony, Cathy tries to get Corrine to eat a arsenic-laced cookie, the struggle over a balcony, and mom goes over, and hangs from a terrace. The three leave the house, Cathy helps pay to put Chris through med school, and Carrie never fully recovers. Moving film reel
