Sundance: London Presents Some Great Genre Titles

The Sundance Film Festival: London, which offers a snapshot of the amazing indie cinema that comes out of the main festival in Utah, has announced some great genre titles for the 2021 event.

Sundance is one of the biggest events on the festival calendar and takes place from July 29th to August 1st at Picturehouse Central in London.

Among the films and panels of interest to STARBURST readers are the eagerly-awaited Censor, directed by Prado Bailey-Bond, which is set in the early eighties with the video nasty ‘scare’ in full swing, a film censor who thinks a banned horror film is a clue to her sister’s disappearance.

The Blazing World stars Udo Kier and features writer/director Carlson Young as a self-destructive woman returning home years after her sister’s death.

Cryptozoo is an animated feature from Dash Shaw set in an alternate reality in which cryptids exist.

Scare Tactics - Making Modern Horror is a panel event to discuss the topic of contemporary horror. Prano Bailey-Bond and Rob Savage (Host) will be part of the panel.

The Sparks Brothers is an acclaimed documentary about the cult US band Sparks and is directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), who will be taking part in a live Q&A following the film.

There's also a retrospective screening of John Hancock's superb Let's Scare Jessica to Death (1971), which is one not to miss!
