Ian McCulloch to appear at Abertoir horror film festival

Ian McCulloch (Greg Preston, Survivors) is appearing at the Welsh international horror film festival Abertoir (@AbertoirFest) being held at Aberystwyth Arts Centre in Ceredigion, 11-16 November 2014.

On Saturday 15 November McCulloch will join director Luigi Cozzi for a screening of their 1980 Italian cult sci-fi horror Contamination (one of three Italian horror movies McCulloch starred in shortly after finishing work on Survivors).

On Sunday 16 November, special event An Evening with Ian McCulloch will see the actor and musician in conversation and performance:

Acclaimed actor Ian McCulloch will be taking to the stage for a light-hearted evening looking back at his elaborate career in film and television. Best known for his leading role as Greg Preston in the 70s BBC TV series Survivors, we of course love him for his iconic appearances in three Italian horror movies: Zombie Flesh Eaters, Zombie Holocaust and Contamination. His horror work also includes Hammer House of Horror and The Ghoul, and other work includes Where Eagles Dare, Cromwell, The Professionals and Doctor Who.

We’re delighted to have lured him here to Aberystwyth where he will also be joining us for a Q&A after a screening of his film Contamination on 15th November.

A wealth of entertaining anecdotes takes us through his acting career that Ian promises will be accompanied by video clips, stories and the imminent threat of his guitar!
