Censor blends the horrors of reality and classic 80s B-horror to create a unique watch. After viewing a strangely familiar video nasty, Enid, a film censor, sets out to solve the past mystery of her sister's disappearance, embarking on a quest that dissolves the line between fiction and reality. I'm a sucker for indie horror flicks so I couldn't pass this up. Director Prano Bailey-Bond crafts an exquisite film for horror lovers that brings a great sense of dread and nostalgia. She had a clear vision from the start to finish that delivered. What's so amazing is the use of lighting. I loved looking at the screen every minute. Everything looks like a b-horror film in all aspects. The third act is absolutely insane. It's a brave choice that really sticks with you. Niamh Algar's performance is phenomenal. The amount of work she put into the role is something to look forward to when this finally gets a release. Obviously, not everyone is going to be onboard with Censor. And that's the case with all horror since it's subjective. The middle does get a little convoluted and the third act, as much as I think most will like it, might seem too absurd for the regular audience. But it all worked for me. Fans of classic horror, video nasties, and those who just want to be utterly confused, should definitely watch this when it's released.
