Censor – Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing

One of the most startlingly original horrors in years, this dark and twisted debut from filmmaker Prano Bailey-Bond is a truly disquieting experience -even for the more hardened fans of the genre. Staying with you long after the lights come up, Censor is a disturbing and unforgettable journey through the ‘video nasty’ era of 1980s Britain led by a mesmerising Niamh Algar (Calm with Horses).

The film has earned a truly lavish – and much deserved – Limited Edition Blu-ray release from Second Sight Films. We took a closer look…


Synopsis
