Is Crackle Bringing Nudity to Youtube?



Recently Crackle released the erotic horror film Candy Stripers on Youtube, (embed was disabled.)

I'm not going to drop spoilers but if you love horror and schlocky B-Movies, Candy Stripers is actually pretty good and delivers on what it promises.

Having said that there is lots of sexy girls but also lots of nudity. Youtube has always walked that fine line between family friendly and risque while other tube channels like DailyMotion and Metacafe have been far more open in terms of R-Rated material. Candy Stripers is either A. an example of Youtube relaxing it's restrictions on sexual content or B. breaking the rules and faces getting flagged or suspended for doing so. I guess time will tell as to which one it is.

The mix of sex and violence is certainly fun to watch but it hasn't translated into views for this film as of yet on Youtube. (A shade under 1,400 views as of this printing.) However, it does beg the question; how far is too far for Youtube?

  4. Typical Crackle I guess.

    So the question remains, how far is too far for Youtube?

  6. I didn't know they geoblocked US Americans. Usually they do that to Canadians first. :(
