Spooky Trailer Unveiled For Sundance Horror Hit ‘Censor’

by Thomas Tuna

The new horror entry Censor–that debuted as part of the Midnight section of this year’s Sundance Film Festival–reminds moviegoers that “you can’t edit reality”.

The indie film–set to hit theaters June 11 and be available on-demand June 18–stars Niamh Algar (Raised by Wolves) as a film censor in the 1980s, as reported by syfy.com. Check out the trailer on this page for a preview of the feature.

The storyline, as explained, follows film censor Enid Baines, who is tasked with deleting graphic and obscene footage from horror movies of the time. A diligent worker, Baines slices out all the objectionable material she finds.

But, one day, she’s assigned to review a disturbing film that brings back hazy memories of her past–and that may have ties to the disappearance of her sister, who recently was declared dead…despite her body never being found.

It’s not long before questions arise and paranoia starts to take hold. And Baines’ work ethic is placed under scrutiny as the lines between what is real and what is fiction begin to blur.

Censor–from Magnolia Pictures–was directed by Prano Bailey-Bond (in her feature debut) from a screenplay she wrote with Anthony Fletcher.
