Abertoir would not feel right without a Vincent Price film amongst the line-up! He is of course the festival’s official patron saint, as appointed by his daughter Victoria who attended the festival in 2011 and 2015, respectively. Team Abertoir selected a film that proved vital to 2017’s giallo theme, Roger Corman’s Tales of Terror.
