Fans of British horror are getting an early treat this August as MASSIVE Cinema is hosting preview screenings of Censor.
MASSIVE Cinema is giving a selection of lucky filmgoers the opportunity to witness this year’s most exciting British horror sensation, Censor, before the UK release date.
Exclusive preview screenings of Censor will take place across seven cities around the UK this August; each complete with introductions and/or audience Q&As with the film’s director, Prano Bailey-Bond and a pre-show short curated by Minute Shorts.
Censor is writer/director Prano Bailey-Bond’s feature debut, and stars BAFTA nominee and IFTA winner Niamh Algar (Calm with Horses). This psychological horror garnered critical acclaim after its World Premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in the Official Selection, and had its European Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.
We’ve been excited about this one for a while, and as we all know, horror movies are better when everyone screams together and, with tickets strictly limited, audiences will need to book quickly to experience this highly anticipated and critically acclaimed shocker early and in its rightful home – the cinema.

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.
Censor will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on the 20th August 2021.
