Plot: 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 censorship theme is great
I liked how it started. The censorship theme is great and original. I didn’t like how the story played out in the second half. All in all, not a great movie for me. Not a great horror or thriller or drama film. But still I enjoyed some parts of this movie.
Horror & Social Satire
Censor: Social Satire as well as Horror as the moral panic of the video nasties in the 1980s is explored. TV and radio talking heads including Mary Whitehouse expound on the filth and depravity being allowed in the videos. Indeed the eponymous censor Enid (Niamh Algar) is caught up in it as a film she approved (with cuts) is blamed for real life mass murder. Enid is actually conservative in her approach while one of her colleagues likens eye-gouging in the films to that of Gloucester in King Lear. When Enid views one film it reminds her of a childhood trauma when her sister disappeared; viewing another by the same director she is certain her sister is the actress. So begins a grim quest which results in murder and terror. People are beheaded, axes lodge in chests and a Horror Film Award Statuette impales an attacker. Woods are used to good effect, being creepy and threatening in dreams, visions, films and at night on a film set. Only in a fantasy sequence do trees bring any joy. Extreme violence but Enid’s inner turmoils provide much of the horror in Censor. Directed/Co-Written by Prano Bailey-Bond. 8/10.
