A TOWN has been taken back to the 1980s as filming for a new psychological horror movie gets underway. 

Crews were spotted in Pudsey town centre last night, where an empty unit on Lowtown has been transformed into 'Gerald's Videos'. 

It's for upcoming flick 'Censor', from director Prano Bailey-Bond and featuring Niamh Algar, who recently co-starred alongside Stephen Graham in the highly acclaimed Channel 4 drama The Virtues, from BAFTA-winning director Shane Meadows.

It is described as the "unsettling tale" of film censor Enid, who discovers an eerily familiar horror film that speaks directly to her past.

As she unravels the mystery behind the film, she loses her grasp on reality and is dragged into a twisted fairytale.

Set in 1985, the film is dubbed an "atmospheric and suspenseful love letter to the horror classics of the past". 

The film is the feature debut by award-winning Screen International Star of Tomorrow 2018 Bailey-Bond, who co-wrote the script with Anthony Fletcher. 

Censor stars Algar (The Virtues, Calm With Horses) alongside Michael Smiley (Jawbone, Kill List), Vincent Franklin (Gentleman Jack, Bodyguard), Nicholas Burns (Ghost Stories, Nathan Barley), Adrian Schiller (Victoria, The Last Kingdom), Max Bennett (Poldark, Bohemian Rhapsody) and Sophia La Porta (Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, Been So Long).

Protagonist Pictures, which is representing worldwide sales for the film, has described Censor as "one the most original and terrifying scripts" it has read, and said it has "all the hallmarks of a future horror classic".

Bailey-Bond’s previous films have screened at 100s of global film festivals and received multiple awards.
