Magnet Releasing has shared a wickedly cool alternate poster for Censor that perfectly complements the film’s Video Nasty theme.
Directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, who also wrote the script alongside Anthony Fletcher, the movie follows Enid (Niamh Algar), a film censor who takes pride in her meticulous work, guarding unsuspecting audiences from the deleterious effects of watching the gore-filled decapitations and eye gougings she pores over. Her sense of duty to protect is amplified by guilt over her inability to recall details of the long-ago disappearance of her sister, recently declared dead in absentia.
But when Enid is assigned to review a disturbing film from the archive that echoes her hazy childhood memories, she begins to unravel how this eerie work might be tied to her past.
Michael Smiley (A Field in England) and Nicholas Burns (Ghost Stories) also star in Censor, which is out now in US theatres ahead of an On Demand release on June 18th. UK audiences can catch the flick from August 20th—and trust me, you don’t want to miss this one!
