TV Review: Lifetime’s ‘If There Be Thorns,’ ‘Seeds of Yesterday’

3 April 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the high-stakes poker tournament of original TV movies, Lifetime has a hell of a hand to play with the remaining two editions of V.C. Andrews’ Dollanganger series. The first of the franchise, “Flowers in the Attic,” packed big ratings for the net, while follow-up “Petals in the Wind” pulled in decent but not as successful numbers. Enter “If There Be Thorns” and “Seeds of Yesterday,” which promise to keep the freak flag flying, drawing fans of the books and mere voyeurs along for the ride. The motto, here, seemingly, is if you can’t do classic, go for camp.

Airing on consecutive weekends, the third and fourth installments, like many a sequel, reinforce the law of diminishing returns, as Andrews’ original American horror story falls flat in the translation of the concluding volumes. On the upside, both are seemingly made for an excellent drinking game or tie-in with the board version of Taboo. »
