Nickelodeon USA To Broadcast "Banned"/"Lost" Nickelodeon Movie "Cry Baby Lane" For Halloween 2011

According to the official Nickelodeon USA website,, Nickelodeon USA is planning to show the "lost"/"banned" Halloween Nickelodeon Movie "Cry Baby Lane" this Halloween on Monday 31st October 2011 on Nickelodeon USA's TeenNick network (channel) as part of TeenNick's "The '90s Are All That" programming block as part of Halloween On Nickelodeon USA 2011.

"Cry Baby Lane" is a made for TV Halloween Nickelodeon movie which premiered on Nickelodeon USA on the night of October 28, 2000. "Cry Baby Lane" was never re-aired or released on video (VHS) or DVD and was widely believed to be because of complaints from parents who found the film to be too scary and inappropriate for children, which the Nickelodeon network later confirmed was untrue. The movie was considered to be a lost film until 2011 when TeenNick announced plans to re-air "Cry Baby Lane" as part of TeenNick's "The '90s Are All That" programming block on October 31, 2011.

"Cry Baby Lane" is about Andrew (Jase Blankfort) and his older brother Carl (Trey Rogers) who enjoy listening to ghost stories that Mr. Bennett (Frank Langella), the local undertaker, tells them. One night Mr. Bennett tells the tale of a local farmer whose wife gave birth to conjoined twins, one being good-natured while the other was clearly evil. The farmer, ashamed of them, kept the twins locked in their room. Eventually the twins got sick and died together, so the farmer sawed them in half and buried the good twin in a cemetery and the bad twin in a shallow grave near the house. Later, Andrew and his friends decide to hold a seance in the cemetery where the good twin is buried, but they unintentionally awaken the bad twin instead. Gradually, the bad twin possesses nearly everyone in town, and it is up to young Andrew to stop him. [Source: Wikipedia - Cry Baby Lane]
