Scary Old Classic!
9 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first aired on tv, years ago, and it has stayed with me my whole life. I still remember it. Night Cries had all the really good scary things from old tv horror movies in it. Basically, it's about a woman who was told her baby died in childbirth, but she swears she can hear it crying every night. Something is telling her, this baby is alive. So she does everything she can to track it down and everyone keeps telling her she's crazy. But the truth is, she has a supernatural connection to this child. I would have to rate this one as an old classic. I just wish it would come out on video or dvd.
