Censor at Odeon Great Northern, City Centre, 10 August 2021, from £8.50 - Book now
Youth culture and film specialists MASSIVE Cinema are back in Manchester this August with a preview of Prano Bailey-Bond’s video-nasty themed horror Censor at Odeon Great Northern. Set in 1985, at the height of the moral panic surrounding so-called “video nasties” the film centred on Enid (Niamh Algar), a woman who works at the British censorship board, sifting through dodgy horror films.
But there are mysteries in Enid’s past, and as she deals with sexist movies and on-screen violence — and colleagues — one film submission feels hauntingly familiar. Picking up from the director’s earlier short film Nasty, Bailey-Bond’s debut feature has been riding a wave of good press since its debut at Sundance Film Festival — and now Manchester film fans can catch it ahead of its wide release.
Supported by the British Film Instiute, MASSIVE believe that horror movies are better watched together, on the big screen. With this in mind, they are bringing along Censor director Bailey-Bond to answer audience questions after the film and make this an unmissable cinema experience for horror fans. As an added incentive, Louise Connolly-Burnham’s short film The Call Centre will screen before the main feature.
