Wales' number one horror festival is back for another spooktastic November with Friday The 13th director Sean S Cunningham as its special guest and a selection of scary films that's guaranteed to please. This year's big focus is on classic slasher movies. Quite a bit of the line-up is yet to be announced so watch this space for updates.

The festival runs from 13 to 18 November.
