    THE NEST OF THE CUCKOO BIRDS (1965) streaming

    Tim Lucas' Video Watchblog today has a story about the resurfacing of the thought-lost exploitation flick THE NEST OF THE CUCKOOO BIRDS (1965). It will reportedly be a streaming item, as opposed to physical media or downloadable media, to launch some new streaming service.

    Think this is part of the new NWR streaming service.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    It's already up. You can watch it for free but it's one of those ones where you have to give your credit card information, then cancel before your free month is up. I completely avoid these ones since I never trust that the cancellation is as easy as they say.

    Streaming is not for me. I would buy it on physical media.

    FACT.

    Lisa at SWV said in Feb. of this year that it was being restored. I'd prefer a disc to a stream too. We'll see what happens I guess.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I was also disappointed I could not just watch it without signing up, as I had time and would have watched right after reading TL's promo.
    Instead, clicked, looked, and left.

    It's an interesting regional obscurity. Like most lost films, it doesn't quite live up to its hype, but has atmosphere to spare and feels a bit like a less campy and frantic Milligan effort.

    There are some striking similarities to MISS LESLIE'S DOLLS and while MISS LESLIE is a superior film in basically all respects, NEST is still a satisfying and worthwhile viewing.

    I wish that Vinegar Syndrome was releasing it on disc.
