Britain, 1985. When film censor Enid discovers an eerie horror that speaks directly to her sister’s mysterious disappearance, she resolves to unravel the puzzle behind the film and its enigmatic director – a quest that will blur the lines between fiction and reality in terrifying ways. Steeped in glorious 1980s aesthetics, CENSOR is a bloody love letter to the VHS ‘video nasty’ horror classics of the past.

Directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, the film stars Niamh Algar (Calm with Horses, Raised by Wolves).

CENSOR is produced by Helen Jones of Silver Salt Films, with legendary horror writer Kim Newman serving as Executive Producer alongside Andy Starke (Rook Films, producer of Sightseers, Kill List and In Fabric) and Ant Timpson (Timpson Films). Naomi Wright, Lauren Dark, Ollie Madden, Daniel Battsek, Mary Burke and Kimberley Warner also serve as Executive Producers. The film also stars Nicholas Burns (Ghost Stories, Nathan Barley), Vincent Franklin (Gentleman Jack, Bodyguard), Sophia La Porta (Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, Been So Long), Adrian Schiller (Victoria, The Last Kingdom) and Michael Smiley (Jawbone, Kill List).

CENSOR was developed by the BFI, Film4, Creative England via the BFI NETWORK and Film Cymru Wales, and was funded by the BFI and Ffilm Cymru Wales, both awarding National Lottery funding, and by Film4, with support from Kodak Motion Picture and Cinelab London.

Magnet Releasing will release CENSOR in US cinemas on 11th June 2021. Vertigo will release it in the UK on 25th June 2021.
