Those of us who weren’t able to catch the film at Sundance will finally get a chance to see what all the buzz is about in June. Magnet Releasing will release Censor in select theaters beginning June 11th; a VOD release will follow on June 18th.

Today, producers released a trailer and poster for Censor! Check them out and read more about the movie below.

Film censor Enid takes pride in her meticulous work, guarding unsuspecting audiences from the deleterious effects of watching the gore-filled decapitations and eye gougings she pores over. Her sense of duty to protect is amplified by guilt over her inability to recall details of the long-ago disappearance of her sister, recently declared dead in absentia. Then Enid is assigned to review a disturbing film from the archive that echoes her hazy childhood memories. Now she begins to unravel how this eerie work might be tied to her past.
