There was nothing sinister — and everything fun — about having "Flowers in the Attic" star Mason Dye ("Secret Diary of an American Cheerleader") take over our Instagram for the day.

The actor and his co-stars, Kiernan Shipka ("Mad Men") and Heather Graham, were on hand at the Television Critics Association press tour Thursday to promote their upcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie.

In case you missed the campy classic the first time around, here's a quick recap: Author V.C. Andrews penned a seriously warped young adult love story about a brother and sister locked away in their grandmother's attic. Trust us, somehow it works.

Watch the trailer:

The remake stars Dye and Shipka as the incestuous Dollanganger sibs, who are abused at the hands of their wicked granny while mom is busy scheming to remarry and get her hands on the family fortune. It's no surprise that the movie's hashtag is #BadGrandma.

Lifetime has so much faith in "Flowers in the Attic" (think #Sharnado or #SoundOfMusicLive level trending on Twitter) that they've already announced a sequel is in the works, "Petals on the Wind."

But first, Shipka, Dye, and Graham had press to meet and G-rated selfies to take all in anticipation of the Jan. 18 premiere. Check out the exclusive photos Dye shared via Yahoo TV's Instagram:


Even guys need a touch-up before stepping into the spotlight.

Dye's wedged into one glam fashion sandwich between Shipka and Graham.

Time for a legit wrap to fuel up between interviews: turkey with bean sprouts.

And now, it's interview time.

The hotel room at the Langham Huntington Pasadena has been cleared out for interviews, but the bed's headboard is stuck to the wall.

Why take just one backstage selfie when six is so much more fun?

Dye and Shipka pose alongside their less wholesome versions Christopher and Cathy Dollanganger:

Dye shares one last snapshot before heading home:

"Flowers in the Attic" premieres Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
