It's not just a film, it's a legend. In the year 2000, the feature-length Halloween special CRY BABY LANE debuted on Nickelodeon and was immediately pulled off the airwaves, allegedly after parents complained that the film - about a young boy who accidentally raises the ghost of a conjoined, but severed twin - was too violent for children. CRY BABY LANE vanished for years, becoming a horrifying creepypasta in the process.
But was it... canceled too soon? Your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by Rebekah McKendry from Blumhouse.com and the Shock Waves podcast to examine this spooky-wooky Halloween special and decide once and for all if the creepypasta is real. Is CRY BABY LANE the most terrifying film in history, or was it just a weird and forgotten experiment from the hallowed halls of Nickelodeon?
