Magnet has released the trailer for Censor, co-written and directed by Prano Bailey-Bond. Niamh Algar plays a film censor in the 1980s whose tragic memories are resurfaced after being assigned a particularly disturbing title to review.
Censor will be in theaters June 11th and on VOD platforms June 18th.
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.
