After viewing a strangely familiar video nasty in 1985, Enid, a film censor, sets out to solve the past mystery of her sister’s disappearance, embarking on a quest that dissolves the line between fiction and reality.
With the rapid spread of video players, low-budget horror films containing provocative scenes poured out in England in the 1980s. At the time, the media called these films “Video Nasty.” The British government determined that the expressions of these cheap films were excessive, so they became subject to censorship. Censor tells the story of Enid, a film censor who suffered a tragic event in the past, searching for the true nature of a horror film that contains the same story as her own memory. While the media blames these horror films for the murders that are taking place one after another, Enid enters into the scary world of the past that she had forgotten. While this film critically looks at the conservative policy and censorship system of Prime Minister Thatcher who ruled Britain with an iron fist at the time, it also shows affection for these horror films that poured out in the 1980s.
