In the new movie CENSOR the brilliant Irish actor Niamh Algar is doing my dream job in my favourite decade! Well it would have been a great job except in the movie it all goes bloody and it blurs the lines between fiction and reality in terrifying ways!
When film censor Enid discovers an eerie horror that speaks directly to her sister’s mysterious disappearance, she resolves to unravel the puzzle behind the film and its enigmatic director.
Steeped in glorious 1980s aesthetics, CENSOR is a bloody love letter to VHS horror classics of the past and gets ★★★ ½ stars
