Dir. Prano Bailey-Bond | UK | 2021 | 1h 24m | Starring Niamh Algar, Michael Smiley, Nicholas Burns

Film censor Enid takes pride in her meticulous work, guarding audiences against the damaging effects of watching the gore-filled video nasties. One day she watches an eerie horror that alludes to the disappearance of her sister and takes it upon her herself to unravel the mystery of the film and its enigmatic director. Shrouded in period detail from 1980s Britain, Prano Bailey-Bond’s bold debut blurs the line between nightmare and reality in spine-chilling fashion.

Reviews

‘This thrilling, dizzying debut from Welsh writer-director Prano Bailey-Bond is a nostalgic treat for anyone old enough to remember the infamous “video nasties” scare of the early 80s.’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

 

‘Sharp social commentary mixed with copious amounts of claret.’ ★★★★★ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
