Update: New link until they remove this one.
I love me a good urban legend, and rarely are they ever proven true. But thanks to the magic of the internet, one has been brought to life this weekend.
There was a legend of a horror movie called Cry Baby Lane which aired on Nickelodeon in the year 2000. The film was deemed so scary, it was pulled and never aired again, with no copies of the movie actually known to exist. It seemed like the stuff of legend, with only a few people having caught the film when it aired, but one intrepid soul actually recorded it on VHS, and now via an elaborate reddit conversation, that copy has finally surfaced, and you can watch Cry Baby Lane in its entirety above.
I haven’t had the chance to watch the whole hour and ten minutes yet, but from what I’ve seen, it’s well made for a TV movie and exceedingly creepy for something that aired on Nickelodeon. Not like, they had to burn all copies of it, but I understand why they might have chosen to not air it again.
