Disney is famous for its fairy tale adaptations, but did you know that one especially spooky made-for-television adaptation aired only once on Halloween and was never seen again?
It's Halloween, and television networks are airing their scariest horror movies and Halloween specials.
Many networks attempt to create their specials with the intention of them becoming the big Halloween equivalent to Rudolph or Frosty.
This has worked for some specials like Disney Channel's Halloweentown; but other specials fail to meet such high expectations, and end up broadcasting once and only once, never to be aired again.
This often leads viewers lucky enough to catch the special during its one and only airing to speculate why it was never re-aired, often to the point where their speculation turns to urban legend.
I’m sure most of you have heard about Cry Baby Lane, the made-for-television Nickelodeon movie which aired on Halloween in 2000 but was never aired again, causing it to be the subject of creepypasta speculating that it was simply “too scary.” (Turns out the movie was simply forgotten!)
What if I told you that something similar occurred with the Disney Channel? That there was a made-for-television movie that aired on Halloween once and only once, never to be aired again?
For more than 30 years, this movie was considered to be a lost film, or even simply an urban legend. But not only was this movie real, it was created by one of the greatest directors of everything mysterious and spooky. Would you believe such a movie was real?
