Prano Bailey-Bond's acclaimed Censor on Limited Edition Blu-ray in January

15 December 2021

Prano Bailey-Bond’s Censor stars Niamh Algar in a mesmerising performance as a dedicated and intense film censor during Britain’s infamous ‘video nasty’ era, whose work slowly becomes intwined with her past. Now this brilliantly dark and disturbing British horror is set for the highly anticipated Limited Edition Blu-ray treatment from Second Sight Films on 31 January 2022.

Enid (Algar – Deceit, The Virtues) spends her days meticulously watching and assessing gruesomely violent and disturbing movies, taking her work as a film censor very seriously. She holds a strong sense of responsibility in protecting audiences from extreme content, subconsciously driven by the guilt she holds from a disturbing childhood trauma. When a troubling film lands on her desk, Enid finds herself embroiled in the story and slowly starts to uncover some of her lost memories that seem strangely similar to the film. Consumed by the need to find if there is a connection between the production and the disappearance of her sister, her life spirals out of control, descending into darkness and danger.

‘This thrilling, dizzying debut... is a nostalgic treat for anyone old enough to remember the infamous "video nasties" scare of the early 80s’ – Mark Kermode
