A scene from Censor

The film “Censor” by Prano Bailey-Bond will be airing on Film4 tonight at 10:50pm.

Prano Bailey-Bond’s mesmerizing drama delves into the hysteria surrounding “video nasties” in the 1980s, slyly emulating the low-budget, visceral horror style of films like Driller Killer and I Spit on Your Grave. Niamh Algar delivers a haunting performance as Enid, a film censor who has become desensitized to the male violence in her line of work. However, everything changes when she watches a movie that brings back memories of her sister’s disappearance years ago. As fiction and reality begin to merge, Enid becomes convinced that her sister may still be alive, leading her down a twisted and dream-like path reminiscent of David Lynch’s work. Simon Wardell
