Triangle: examining a modern classic horror-thriller

Ryan Lambie Oct 25, 2016

An underrated gem about death on a boat, Christopher Smith's Triangle is also a classic fable about sin and punishment, Ryan writes...

How can Triangle be summed up in just a sentence or two? It’s a thriller about a boat trip that goes horribly awry. Then it becomes a lean slasher flick set on an abandoned cruise liner. And then it flips over into - well, that’d just be spoiling things. And maybe this gets to the heart of why Triangle earned praise from critics but didn’t exactly soar at the box-office on its release in 2009: the movie doesn’t have any major stars, unless you count former Home & Away actress Melissa George or a pre-Hunger Games Liam Hemsworth, and it’s impossible to describe the plot in detail without ruining its many twists and turns.

Seeds of Yesterday: Twitter Loses Its Mind over Final Flowers in the Attic Film

If you thought Twitter couldn't get any more worked up than it did over If There Be Thorns, you were sorely mistaken.

Sunday saw the conclusion of Lifetime's on-screen adaptations of V.C. Andrews's Flowers in the Attic series, and, suffice it to say, fans freaked out.

Spoilers for those who haven't watched the previous three films: Seeds witnessed the inevitably twisted end to the Foxworth-Dollanganger-Sheffield-Winslow family's complicated saga. Sibling spouses Cathy and Chris Sheffield (Rachael Carpani and Jason Lewis) returned to their childhood home, Foxworth Hall, which had been taken over by Cathy's son Bart Winslow Jr. (James Maslow

If There Be Thorns: How Twitter Reacted to the Third Flowers in the Attic Film
Lifetime aired the third and penultimate installment of V.C. Andrews's Flowers in the Attic saga on Sunday night, and the Internet naturally freaked out.

Thorns flashes forward on Flowers' incestuous (but deeply in love!) siblings Cathy and Christopher Dollanganger Sheffield (Rachael Carpani and Jason Lewis) to find them grown-up, married and stalked by their mother Corrine (Heather Graham), who vengefully begins to turn Cathy's youngest child Bart (Mason Cook) – who was conceived through an affair with Corrine's late husband Bart Winslow (Dylan Bruce) – against his parents. Only, Corrine doesn't realize her butler John Amos (Mackenzie Gray) has his own

Jason Lewis Talks New Lifetime Movie & Potential "Sex And The City" Reunion

  • TooFab
Jason Lewis is so dreamy, even his sister wants to have sex with him. Well, at least that's the case in his two new Lifetime films, "If There Be Thorns" and "Seeds Of Yesterday," the third and fourth adaptations of V.C. Andrews' irresistibly twisted novels. While the actor is no stranger to sex scenes -- as seen by his work as Samantha Jones' hunky boyfriend Smith Jerrod on "Sex and the City" -- things were a little different this time around. In the films, Jason's character Christopher is in an incestuous relationship with sister Cathy, after the two connected while being locked in an attic by their mother as children. Check out the video above to see what he told toofab's Candice Brock about filming some of their racier ... and controversial ... scenes for the "Flowers In the Attic" sequel.

As we reported earlier in the week, Marisa Ramirez has signed on for a five-episode arc on Blue Bloods, coming on board the CBS drama as Detective Maria Baez, the new partner of Donnie Wahlberg’s Danny. Her first episode, “Protest Too Much,” airs tonight.

Against the Wall: Cancelled; No Season Two

Lifetime has decided that neither of its freshman dramas are worthy of a second season. The cable channel cancelled The Protector in September and they've now canned Against the Wall as well.
