Censor: UK horror’s release date slips to August

Share this Article:

Prano Bailey-Bond’s acclaimed horror movie Censor will now be with us a few weeks later than originally planned in the UK.

The perils of being a smaller, independent movie when the big blockbusters start coming have been laid a little bare, with the news that the already hugely-acclaimed British horror Censor is having to delay its release.

The film was due to debut at the end of this month in UK cinemas, but that would have put it head to head with Fast & Furious 9 at the box office. It would not have been an easy fight. As such, Vertigo Releasing, the firm giving Censor a full UK cinema release, has bought the movie just a little extra breathing space. It’s put the release of the film back to August 20th 2021. A small, frustrating delay, but a fully understandable one.

If you know little about the film thus far, then here’s the trailer for it to whet your appetitie…

And finally, here’s the synopsis for it…

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.
