Ok, this isn't an October event but The Abertoir Horror Festival is well worth publicising. From 12th-16th November,the Aberystwyth Arts Centre in Wales will play host to a rather special film fest. Here, over 20 films will be screened, with book signings, music, theatre and special guests joining forces over 5 frantic days.
HELLRAISER fans will want to look out for a special evening with Doug Bradley, who will present 'An Evening With Death'; a journey through horror, using classic works from HP Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. Fans of Goblin will want to attend the concert from Daemonia, with Claudio Simonetti including some of his most famous scores. Just to put you in the mood, there will be a 35mm presentation of SUSPIRIA beforehand. Some great news also for admirers of Gary Sherman's DEATH LINE, as Gary will be bringing a brand new 35mm print of his classic film, together with his latest film 39 for its European premiere. Also look out for HALLOWEEN, MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, MACHINE GIRL, a mystery Grindhouse screening and much more!
The festival is in its third year, and looks set to be an out and out success. Click on the link for full details http://www.abertoir.co.uk/ Sadly, we won't be able to attend but hope everyone has a great time.
