Join us as we celebrate 10 years of Abertoir with an extra-special festival!
Abertoir is back for another six days of horror-filled entertainment: classic films, premieres, music, theatre, talks, Q&As, special guests – and much more! This year is a very special year, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, bringing together some familiar faces from the past decade, and some brand new exciting events!
We welcome back Victoria Price, daughter of Vincent Price, to the festival, who with film historian and journalist Peter Fuller, will look at our theme “Vincent Price – The Anglophile”. They’ll be talking to us about Vincent Price’s love of the UK, his work on British films and his own personal experiences. Alongside this there will be screenings of The Abominable Dr. Phibes and Dr. Phibes Rises Again, as well as an exhibition of some of Price’s own personal ephemera, courtesy of Peter Fuller’s own collection.
We also welcome back maestro Fabio Frizzi, beloved composer of such memorable scores as The Beyond and Zombie Flesh Eaters – only this time he’s bringing the band! Join us on our opening night for a special performance of Frizzi 2 Fulci, a concert dedicated to Frizzi’s long-term collaborations with director Lucio Fulci. A rare chance to experience these magnificent scores brought to life by an orchestra, against a backdrop of film clips from the classics themselves.
Our theatre sees the return of Robert Lloyd Parry, and he’ll be bringing some of M R James’ classic ghost stories to life on stage. But it’s not just the show this time, he’ll be offering some insights into the art of performing classic ghost stories, alongside a talk from Dr. Luke Thurston on the great author himself.
To mark another 10-year anniversary, we are hosting a very exciting off-site screening of Neil Marshall’s superb British horror film, The Descent. In collaboration with The Silver Mountain Experience and Darkened Rooms, journey with us into the cold and dark depths of a mid-Walian mountain, before experiencing the terror of The Descent on-site. Yes, there will be surprises…!
Listen up! Fans of Danger 5 will also rejoice, as we’ll be welcoming creators Dario Russo and David Ashby to the stage for a live commentary in our Danger 5 marathon!
And of course, that’s just a fraction of what we have on offer, plenty of premieres and brand new films are planned, more guests and more events than you can possibly imagine…. It’s with great pleasure that we invite you to Abertoir 10!
