    I had remember watching Flowers in the Attic in 1987, but had forgotten who the stars were. I have watched all the new versions and really am looking forward to Seeds of Yesterday. Ellen Burstyn really played the grandmother well. I am hoping that one they one of the net works will show the one with Louise Fletcher.

    I thought this thriller was spooky. Tenant,plays a widow *********** home to get back in her father's graces.She brings her four children in tow, and seems cold to their needs. Louise Fletcher, is the stern grandmother who slowly tries to poison them.Jeb Stuart Adams and Kristy Swanson play the older children. When they get a clue to what is happening, they scheme to make their mom pay for her actions. I love the ending,when Corrine (Tenant) faces her daughter and gets her "just desserts";
