So our first strike has now expired and we’ve made all our 3,500 videos live again on YouTube! Feels great to be back, we’ve still got one other strike to ride out though, that expires in early November, so not long to go on that.
As a special back-in-action treat we’ll be uploading a super rare VHS trailer find each day for the next seven days! Here’s the first one, get ready to meet: The Godchildren (1971).
If you did know we’ve been quiet for the last 5 weeks due to getting two copyright strikes here on our channel, if we get a third one of channel gets deleted with no chance to save it. So we took the decision to make all our videos Private until the first strike expires on Tuesday 6th October.
We’ll be back uploading from Wednesday 7th October, for the first seven days we’ll be uploading one super rare film trailer per day, so make sure you’re checking our uploads to see films you didn’t know existed!
Big thanks to the amazing Pentagram Home Video for letting us use the track “The Satanic Path” on this video, check out more of his music here:
We just got another Copyright Strike on here, so we’re at two Strikes right now, if we get a third then the channel vanishes instantly, which means 13-years of work and over 3,500 videos all vanish. So we’ve taken the big decision to make all the videos Private until the first strike expires in 7 weeks on October 7th 2020. So you won’t be able to see any of the videos until then, we’re also going to stop uploading for that time. Hope everyone understands why we’re doing that, thanks for watching all the videos, we’ll be back in October!
The long long unseen NY crime thriller Family Honor (1973) has finally surfaced by way of what looks to have been the director himself uploading his own copy to YouTube, more proof that if you look and wait long enough most things eventually turn up!
I’d first heard of this very obscure thriller by stumbling on the trailer via YouTube, which made it looks like a total must see, take a watch here:
Looking around I was surprised to find that there was no way at all to see this great looking 70s crime Mafia thriller, there was no VHS, DVD, online version or seemingly any other way of watching this.
I’d filed it away in the back of my mind and hoped that one day it would surface, well that day is now here as we can now all watch it over on YouTube. The uploader shares the same name as the director: Clark Worswick, and the info says this copy if taken from one of only 3 film prints known to exist, so yes it looks like the director himself has had his own print transferred to digital and then uploaded it to YouTube.
So how is it? Well it’s a fun watch that feels so authentic as it’s all shot on grimy locations which really give you a feel for the time and the place. It’s quite talky as well, really more of a drama than a thriller, but I still had a great time watching this, plus the directors use of extreme close ups gives the whole things a tight claustrophobic feel. There also seems to have been a strange effect picked up in the transfer, in a lot of close up scenes the background seems to wobble and warp quite often, I kind of enjoyed this unexpected effect as it just adds to the strangeness of finally being able to see this film.
You can watch all 4-parts of the great Family Honor right here, just to note Part 4 is only about 5-minutes long, with a lot of black screen at the end. Enjoy this super rarity!
