Magnet Releasing has unveiled the official poster, trailer, and release date for one of the horror faves featured at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, aptly titled CENSOR. Make sure you check out the trailer below and mark your calendars!
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.
The film stars Niamh Algar (“Raised by Wolves”, Wrath of Man), who gives a star-making performance as Enid. CENSOR is directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, who co-wrote the screenplay with Anthony Fletcher.
Magnet Releasing will release CENSOR in theaters on June 11th, 2021, and then On-Demand on June 18th, 2021. To learn more about the film, check out our review from Sundance!
