On October 14, viewers can watch Censor, which made its debut at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Censor follows a young woman named Enid, who works for the British Board of Film Classification during the “Video Nasty” years.

The Evil Next Door will premiere on October 21, and it tells the story of Shirin, who moves into a duplex with her boyfriend Fredrik and his young son Lucas. When Frederik is gone, Shirin starts to hear things in the empty half of the duplex and fears for Lucas’s safety.

On October 22, the eco-horror film Gaia premieres. An injured forest ranger is rescued by a couple of survivalists who have an almost cult-like reverence for the forest.
