The Dollanganger Saga continues into the early 1990s. After undergoing psychiatric treatment in his teens following his encounter with his now-deceased grandmother Corrine Foxworth, Bart Sheffield has become the sole heir of her estate. He has rebuilt and moved into Foxworth Hall and legally changed his last name to Foxworth. The estate is legally being managed by Bart's father, Christopher Sheffield, until Bart turns 25 as stipulated in Corrine's will. Bart brings together his entire family to celebrate this important birthday, on which an extra clause in Corrine's will is to be read as she had instructed. The family includes: his parents Chris and Cathy Sheffield, whose incestuous relationship disgusts Bart; his older brother and sister-in-law, Jory and Melodie Marquet, who are both renowned ballet dancers; and his adopted younger teenage sister, Cindy Sheffield, who is openly exploring her sexuality. Bart has pushed his family away since his psychiatric treatment, especially Chris,... Written by Huggo

'Seeds' concludes a whirlwind of a series in dramatic fashion
8 June 2015 | by arussell23See all my reviews

And here we have finally arrived. The last installment in the Dollanganger series, which is hopefully never going to continue. We began with Flowers in the Attic, a isolated story that was fairly interesting, and then Petals on the Wind, which was underwhelming at best, and then If There Be Thorns which was a suspenseful thriller that I thought was the best so far. Now, we've come to the finale. The only thing I know for certain is that James Maslow is in this one, and I enjoy him as an actor and he's a sexy beast, I mean, delightful human being. Let us dive right into the deep END... this is...

...Seeds of Yesterday. Seeds of Yesterday starts off thirteen years after If There Be Thorns, with Bart inviting the family to the newly built reproduction of Foxworth Hall for his twenty-fifth birthday bash, and all of them bringing news and their own problems that start to weigh heavily on Bart's mind.

This is a very worthy sequel to If There Be Thorns. Let's talk about the positives, because there is a lot of them. The character of Bart is probably the most interesting character, in not just this film or the previous one, but in the entire series. James Maslow gives an amazing performance in this film. I wouldn't expect it from the guy who began on a show like Big Time Rush, but he honestly brings a sense of darkness to the character that just works so well. Definitely the best actor in the film, just as Mason Cook was last time.

The cinematography and music are all wonderful. What's the point of even mentioning it in these films anymore? They all look very atmospheric and make any room seem either warm or cold, depending on what the situation is.

All of the other actors do well, even some of the newer ones who have been recast again (I think this is the only time Chris and Cathy haven't been recast in a film!). Some of the highlights, in my eyes, include Sammi Hanratty as a grown-up Cindy Sheffield, Anthony Konechy and Leah Gibson as Jory and Melodie Marquet, and they all do a great job. All of them are forced to do some pretty despicable things in the film, or experience those things, so having actors who can properly convey that, is very important.

The plot is pretty good. Towards the end, it does go a bit crazy and Bart seems to be going off the deep end, but what I previously thought might have been possession could have also been delusion. The way this film ends, it's kind of reminiscent of how the first one begins. It begins, and ends, in the attic of a Foxworth Hall. I don't know if that was in the book, but that is a very strange way to end the film.

Perhaps my only issue is that I still can't believe that there's another incestuous relationship in this film, and the fact that for how much Bart preaches about sex being a sin, he really has a lot of it in the film. I counted like four or five times he had a sex scene in the film. The incestuous relationship kind of comes out of nowhere. I won't spoil it, in case you have an interest in watching the film, but still.

Overall, Seeds of Yesterday is on the same level as If There Be Thorns, better than the first two and a very intriguing story. I personally enjoyed the acting, especially from James Maslow, the cinematography, music, and script. The only things I disliked were some of the plot elements and the ending, but it's still a great conclusion to this roller-coaster ride of a series.

8/10. Grade: B+ (Film Grade) 7/10. Grade: B (Series Grade)
