Here’s a first look at an upcoming horror movie called Censor which will premiere at this year’s digital Sundance Film Festival from January 28 – February 3. The film is the debut feature from Welsh filmmaker Prano Bailey-Bond and stars Niamh Algar as the film’s lead ‘Enid’. The movie will open the Festival’s Midnight strand.
The film is set in 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.
The film stars Algar alongside Michael Smiley (Jawbone, Kill List), Vincent Franklin (Gentleman Jack, Bodyguard), Nicholas Burns (Ghost Stories, Nathan Barley), Adrian Schiller (Victoria, The Last Kingdom) and Sophia La Porta (Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, Been So Long).
