Sometimes they come back... We were glad to see, in 2013, that Abertoir, Wales' premier horror film festival, had returned for another year, and it was as full of scares and shivers as ever. Some of the freshest work in horror, attracting praise all round the world, was on offer there, plus there was a great selection of classic work, including a Peter Cushing retrospective.
