Description

“We can’t afford to make mistakes,” says film censor Enid to a work colleague. But when one particular fright flick strikes a chord with Enid’s past, her concern with protecting the public from violent content turns into obsession as she tracks down the director on the set of his latest production. With a gritty style that pays homage to the video nasties of the 1980s, Bailey-Bond offers a chilling depiction of madness set against a smart critique of the horror genre.
