Those nice folks at ABERTOIR, Wales' premier horror film festival, have kindly asked me to speak at ths year's special COURT OF CULT segment, where I will join three other leading scholars to defend who I think is the ultimate cult British horror star.
My star of choice is the horribly underrated SHEILA KEITH of Frightmare fame. Sheila will be up against PETER CUSHING (defended by Peter Hutchings), CHRISTOPHER LEE (defended by Russ Hunter) and MICHAEL RIPPER (defended by Matt Hills).
The event takes place at 15.00 on Wednesday 6 November 2013.
