Censor from 2021 is set in the late 80's and stars Niamh Aglar who plays Enid, a very straight-laced film censor during the period of the video nasties. She’s a professional and insists that they need to properly cut the films in order to protect the public and the youth. She takes her job very seriously. But looking at violent images over and over again must claw away at your psyche, right? Especially when papers report of a man who kills his wife the same way as a murderer does in one of the movies that Enid censored. Well her boss isn’t happy that a movie she cut had a negative effect on society and Enid takes it rather hard.
And this isn’t the only baggage Enid carries with her. When she was very young, her little sister went missing and Enid is to blame. She can’t remember what happened, but the mystery begins to unfold when she believes she sees her sister in a snuff film titled Don’t Go in The Church. The film was directed by Frederick North who may hold many of the secrets.
Censor is a psychological horror film and the directorial debut of Prano Bailey-Bond. She does a fantastic job. She was meticulous with her direction. Things were blocked and storyboarded to death. Everything was done so precisely and with Prano being an editor as well, she knew exactly what she wanted. But why was the film so well planned, well it had to be. It was shot on film. Yeah, a low-budget horror film shooting on 35 mm!?
