Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Abertoir >> 2012
Back for its seventh year, Abertoir has a strong selection of horror and cult film fare with which to scare the inhabitants of Aberystwyth. The highly acclaimed American Mary and Antiviral head the line-up, but there are also old favourites like Quatermass And The Pit and even a special screening of he Rocky Horror Picture Show. Guest of honour Catriona MacColl will speak at a special screening of The Beyond while other guests include Hellraiser star Simon Bamford and director Steven Sheil. Book readings and talks will run alongside the film line-up, plus there'll be a chance to watch Tod Browning classic The Unknown with live piano accompaniment.
