What do you get when you cross a V.C. Andrews novel with a Nine Inch Nails cover? Try a promo that is so haunting and creepy, it hurts. After tackling the Flowers in the Attic series, Lifetime is taking on another V.C. Andrews title with the small screen adaption of My Sweet Audrina. We’ve got an exclusive first look at the promo for the original TV movie, which looks every bit as disturbing as the book. And we mean that in a good way.
Based on the 1982 V.C. Andrews novel of the same name, the drama follows Audrina (India Eisley), an isolated young girl who’s kept under watch in a house of horrors by her controlling and definitely deranged father Damian (Revenge’s James Tupper). Daddy dearest expects his daughter to fill the void of her dead sister, aka the “first and best Audrina.”
The promo leads with the promise, “One day all of the secrets of this house will be revealed.” Sounds like there are a lot of them — like any good V.C. Andrews story, hallucinations, torture, forbidden sex, and really dark family secrets follow.
My Sweet Audrina premieres Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
