About this movie

In this eerily enchanting musical film by Melanie Martinez, Cry Baby, a strong and sensitive girl, is sent off to a disturbing sleepaway school that's hidden underneath a grandiose façade. Luckily, she has a sweet and unapologetic best friend who sticks up for her when she gets bullied by the other students whose brains are under control by the Principal and his wicked staff. With the help of the magical friends they meet along the way, as well as an Angelic Spirit Guide, they are able to gain the strength they need to fight off the school's belligerent patriarchal conditioning.

I was completely blown away! I've never thought of Melanie making a movie for an album - that is genius of her. This movie is great, and it's disturbing how this school and its officials are like. And who knows? there might be schools like that, or used to be - or maybe close to it. I also really liked the choreography, the interactions between the people, the students with their supernatural powers, the many props that were used, as well as the school and the other places shown in the movie. <3

I love the movie/album. The first time it came out I watched it and immediately downloaded it. For those past weeks I've been watching it every night and I still love it every time I watch it. I love Melanie Martinezs work from the first time I watched dollhouse and she does things with a purpose, so if you don't like what she's doing then you wouldn't understand and you wouldn't know why she's doing it. So shut up if you don't like what she's doing🙌🏼
