YMMV: Cry Baby Lane

  • Hype Backlash: After years of being built up as something truly horrific thanks to various creepypastas, urban legends and recollections from people who watched it when it first aired, many were disappointed at what they considered to be something no scarier than your average episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? or Goosebumps.
  • Memetic Mutation: It's a supposed kid-teen horror film that, for the longest time, became a Missing Episode because it was apparently so scary that parents phoned in complaining about it. This thing is a Real Life, Truth in Television example of all the supposed 'movie / show that only aired once because it was so scary it caused horrible side effects' standard Creepy Pasta setups on the net. Naturally, it obtain many Creepy Pastas on the net about it. After finally getting to air again after an April Fools joke, and revealing to many that it was either So Bad, It's Good or So Bad, It's Horrible, it quickly started to become a Discredited Meme.
  • Nausea Fuel: When the apparition of the evil twin starts scarfing down worms, it makes the most disgusting crunching/squishing sound...
  • So Bad, It's Good
