“If There Be Thorns” is the third leg in the Dollanganger incest saga. While the first part is the most memorable, it’s interesting to see the further adaptations sink into the bizarre soap opera period nature of keeping incest alive across the decades. I keep forgetting that there is a generation out there who didn’t get to experience V.C. Andrews a huge genre writer. Now, it feels kinda off just to have these adaptations exist as a limp Lifetime movies. While the kitsch is there, the opportunity to get really gross has gone missing. The DVD comes with no special features.
