Horrible
4 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have had the pleasure of reading several of V.C. Andrew's books. Each one was a well spun web of interest and intrigue. The perfect combination for a movie if placed in the right hands. And yet...it happened again. The second filmed crappy version of a wonderful author's fictional work. Flowers in the Attic - strike one. Rain - strike two. What went on in the creation of this movie? So much of the story was left out and to compensate so much trash was put in. Example: The book took time to effectively develop Mrs. Hudson and Rain's relationship. They were not even tolerable of each other initially but grew to love one another. In the movie it seems within 10 minutes of their meeting they were the perfect grandmother/granddaughter pair. And to make matters worse the acting by various characters Jarod (over the top!), Rain's biological mother and even Rain at times were dreadful. Utterly unacceptable. Andrew's Family please read this review. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO ANOTHER V.C. ANDREW'S NOVEL! Do not allow a strike 3!
