When Stuff Got Weird: Flowers In The Attic + 10 Other Incestuous Moments On Film

Today the remake of the disturbing, provocative and emotional Flowers in the Attic is airing on Lifetime. The movie (and the book it’s based on) may make us shiver, but it does star a very talented cast: Heather Graham, Ellen Burstyn, Kiernan Shipka and Mason Dye. In honor of this premiere and its weighty plotline (*cough* incest central), we’ve collected 10 instances of family intimacies that have reached blurry territory on TV and in film. From sibling makeouts (ahem, Star Wars) to dads getting hot n’ heavy with their daughter’s best friend (American Beauty) — we’re taking you to a disturbing place, and we have the video clips to prove it. So brace yourself for some uncomfortable squirming. Shizz is about to get really weird.

12. The Offense: Twins Princess Leia & Luke Skywalker Share A Passionate Kiss In Star Wars

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Luke’s enchantment with the beautiful Leia begins. Then in The Empire Strikes Back we watch the duo share a loving kiss. This is all good and fine, until we learn they’re twins in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. That’s grosser than Jabba The Hutt in a bikini. But, in their defense, they had no idea about their blood relations. Guess we’ll let this one slide, guys.
11. The Offense: Ex-Step-Siblings Cher and Josh Kiss…And Then Pursue A Relationship In Clueless

While this movie is predominantly about high school experiences, shopping and the exploitation of the phrase “as if,” it also covers the grey area between ex-step-siblings in love. If step-siblings are suddenly torn apart by their parents getting a divorce, is it still weird if they want to hook-up and like, fall in love and stuff? I say yes. Cher and Josh say otherwise. You be the judge.
