Lifetime Channel owns January – Flowers in the Attic, Lizzie Borden, and Tiger Eyes!

[adrotate banner=”1″]Lifetime is on a spree of interesting new made for tv movies, including two high profile January events, and one that’s not as high profile just because the other two are so much bigger.

January 11th will give us Tiger Eyes – yes, based on the book by Judy Blume! Don’t tell me you didn’t read it as a kid. Tiger Eyes stars Willa Holland, Amy Jo Johnson, and Cynthia Stevenson .

17-year-old Davey’s life has been ripped apart by the sudden loss of her father. Uprooted by her mother to the strange “atom bomb” town of Los Alamos, New Mexico, she meets the mysterious Wolf and sets out on a journey from heartbreak and confusion to life and love after tragedy. Based on the classic novel, “Tiger Eyes” by Judy Blume.

In addition to some live-action Judy Blume, don’t forget January 18th brings us Flowers in the Attic! We posted a trailer in our last Lifetime update.

Based on V.C. Andrews’ controversial book that quickly became a cult classic, the Lifetime Original Movie “Flowers in the Attic” weaves the twisted story of the Dollanganger kids who, after the unexpected death of their father, are convinced by their mother Corrine (Heather Graham) to stay hidden in the attic of their wealthy grandparents’ mansion so she can reclaim the family fortune. But as her visits begin to wane after she becomes involved with a new husband (Dylan Bruce), the children endure unimaginable treatment at the hands of their ruthless grandmother Olivia Foxworth (Ellen Burstyn). As years go by and the eldest children Cathy (Kiernan Shipka) and Christopher (Mason Dye) come of age, both emotionally and physically, their family’s sordid past entraps them further as they look to each other for comfort.

Then break out your grinding stones, because January 25th is the premiere of Lizzie Borden Took an Axe! Christina Ricci plays the titular character.

The nursery rhyme “Lizzie Borden took an ax…and gave her mother forty whacks…when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one” has been folklore for generations. But, in fact, it was Lizzie Borden — one of the most legendary figures in American history — who first whetted the public’s voracious interest in scandalous crimes in the 1800s with her own gruesome story involving the brutal murder of her parents. Starring Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award nominee Christina Ricci (Monster), Golden Globe® Nominee Billy Campbell (The Killing) and Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Clea DuVall (Argo), the Lifetime Original Movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax premieres January 25, 2014, at 8pm ET/PT.

January is the Month of Lifetime, and since SyFy can’t get their act together to premiere more cool creature features, Lifetime is now the biggest network in original movies.
