Movie Info

Film censor Enid 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. 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.

Indie movies like this one aren't out to make a killing, but consider me slain.

This thrilling, dizzying debut from Welsh writer-director Prano Bailey-Bond is a nostalgic treat for anyone old enough to remember the infamous "video nasties" scare of the early 80s.

Censor feels lovingly worked-at, slathered in period detail and aesthetic beauty.

Algar's intense performance ... keeps the momentum surging throughout. A clever concept carried out with great invention and some emotional honesty.

This half-baked horror is all context and no content.

If Censor isn't in the same class as last year's outstanding British horror debuts, it remains a promising start, and it will be fascinating to see what this film-maker can do once she engages more emphatically with the world.
