Fans of the short films Dysmorphia, Split and Ink get ready as there has been some pretty awesome and exciting news released regarding our favourite award-winning Scottish director Andy Stewart‘s latest project REDACTED. Not only does this project mark a change in direction for Stewart as he will be embracing Sci-Fi and Fantasy but his latest short will also star two genre icons Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipede 2 & 3, The Editor) and Tristan Risk (American Mary, The Editor, The ABC’s of Death 2).
Described as an “exploration of the darker side of human nature when confronted with something strange and otherworldly” REDACTED will see Laurence R Harvey play an unimposing Man that stumbles upon a humanoid creature with alluring female qualities. While fearful and in apparent need of assistance, The Creature oozes sexuality and danger but it is unclear where the danger really lies…
“It’s a slightly different direction for me this time, a brief step away from body horror and into sci-fi or fantasy” says Director Andy Stewart. “I am absolutely over the moon to be working with both Tristan and Laurence on this project. Having Laurence on-board is hugely exciting and a little daunting to me. I cannot wait to see what he does with the role. Tristan and I have talked about working together for a while now so I’m very happy to be bringing her to Scotland for this”.
REDACTED will see Stewart re-teaming with BAFTA-winning cinematographer Alan C. McLaughlin and the Special Make-Up Effects will again be designed by award-winning FX artist Grant Mason (Hardware, Sleepy Hollow, Bride of Chucky, Clive Barker’s Nightbreed) who also created the make-up and gore effects on Split and Ink. The film will also be produced by Gordon Holliday, Remo Catani and Austin Hayden.
Filming is set to begin in June 2015, with a crowdfunding campaign to launch in the next week. In the meantime, If you’re anything like us and enjoy a satisfying slice of horror then I invite you to join us in wishing Andy Stewart, Laurence R Harvey, Tristan Risk and the rest of team REDACTED all the best as we can’t wait to see more.
