The official synopsis for Censor reads: "Britain, 1985. 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 – a quest that will blur the lines between fiction and reality in terrifying ways.

"Steeped in glorious 1980s aesthetics, Censor is a bloody love letter to the VHS 'video nasty' horror classics of the past."

Alongside Algar, the film also stars Michael Smiley (Jawbone, Kill List), Vincent Franklin (Gentleman Jack, Bodyguard), Nicholas Burns (Ghost Stories, Nathan Barley), Adrian Schiller (Victoria, The Last Kingdom) and Sophia La Porta (Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral, Been So Long).

The movie is produced by Helen Jones at Silver Salt Films and was developed by the BFI, Film4, Creative England via the BFI NETWORK and Ffilm Cymru Wales. It's written by Bailey-Bond and Anthony Fletcher.

Censor will open the Midnight strand at the Sundance Film Festival 2021, while a wider release is yet to be announced.
