Genre legends Laurence R. Harvey (THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2) and Tristan Risk (AMERICAN MARY) will once again appear together in the next short film from Scottish director Andy Stewart.

The pair were previously seen in the fabulous CALL GIRL (directed by Jill Sixx Gevargizian).

Andy Stewart has made an impact with his ‘body horror’ trilogy of shorts: DYSMORPHIA, SPLIT and INK, which have been turning the stomachs of festival audiences for the past year or so.

STARBURST highlighted his output in a Horror Obscura feature in issue number 402.

This next short – which he promises will be his last before making the leap to feature films – will be entitles REDACTED, and he says will be, “A slightly different direction for me this time, a brief step away from body horror and into sci-fi and fantasy”. “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, while the Special Make-Up Effects will again be designed by award-winning FX artist Grant Mason (SLEEPY HOLLOW, BRIDE OF CHUCKY), who also created the make-up and gore effects on Split and Ink.

Filming is set to begin in June 2015, with a crowdfunding campaign set to launch in the next week.



While on an afternoon hike, an unimposing Man 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…

REDACTED is an exploration of the darker side of human nature when confronted with something strange and otherworldly.


Expect more on the project as things develop.
