Tristan Risk and Laurence R. Harvey Are Coming to Scotland to Make a Film with Andy Stewart and Need YOUR Help....ERMAHGERD!! One of the Coolest IndieGoGo Campaigns You Could Get Behind....Trust Me! :)
It is with great, nerdy, almost orgasmic excitement, that I introduce to y'all the newest project from my fellow Scot, Andy Stewart! This would be something for me to get all lovey over in the first place, as he's pretty fucking rad...and his films are aight too!! ;) Haha. Okay, his films are fucking incredible...as I am sure those who have seen Dysmorphia, Split and INK already will testify. You'll have possibly heard me gushing about him on here already. You can watch Dysmorphia in the link. Trust me....it's awesome!!! :)
Redacted. A Scottish Film to be filmed in Glasgow, that you are going to WANT to help out. Trust me. So much awesome here!! This is an ambitious short film though, and we need your help to take Andy's oh so demented vision to the next level, and are asking y'all to help us out with our new crowdfunding campaign.
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…
With his multi-award winning body horror trilogy complete and released, writer/director Andy Stewart is dipping his toe into sci-fi horror territory.
(Pictured above - Andy Stewart with Laurence R. Harvey)
With Redacted, he's taking a slightly different turn from body horror, and enlisting the ultimate BODY in horror, muuahahahaha....the looooovely, freaktarded, super freak, ALL WEEK....., my sharky ass shakin' sista, Miss Tristan Risk....aka Little Miss Risk...pictured below as a VERY Risky faerie! MWAH! :)
Horror fans will know Tristan from my Canadian siblings and women in horror partners in crime, Jen and Sylvia Soska's American Mary, where she played Beatress, a Betty Boop inspired stripper who is just insanely quirky and just downright fucking adorable!! Tristan has also been working on Brandon Slagle's House of Manson, playing one of the Manson girls, which is super cool....especially with Ryan Kiser playing Charles Manson. And speaking of Ryan, the star of Jessica Cameron's Truth or Dare, Tristan has also just finished filming Jessica's latest film, Mania...a fucked up lesbian bipolar love story (pictured below). Which is basically my perfect film. Haha. :)
And then...just because we're bringing Risky over from Canada, it means she really needed an equally freaktarded co-star, and with that I welcome on board Laurence R. Harvey, whom you might know from The Human Centipede 2 (pictured below) and 3. OR....if you've had a chance to see Jill Gevargizian's Call Girl - short film, then you'll have seen Laurence and Risky in action. heart emotico
Because Tristan and Lawrence have worked together before, there is already going to be that chemistry, and ease of working with each other. This is going to make Redacted even more special, as there is already that bond....and they are willing to go that little bit further, and with total ease.
You can watch Call Girl below, it's amazing. I shall also be screening Call Girl at Jennifer's Bodies, which I'm super excited about. It'll look ace on the big screen.
So yay....Redacted is going to be a sweet as fuck project, and the perks that you can get for helping us out with this campaign are totally rad. I am so freaking excited to be working on this. Any help you can give us would be amazing. Be it donating to the film, or even just sharing the links, this blog....anything. This is a wicked opportunity for Scottish film as well. To get two such big names within horror...and to take multi-award winning director Andy Stewart to the next level.....it's so exciting!!! You can follow the project on Facebook at the Official Redacted page, as well as following Andy's Shining Example Films too. Go drop them both a big massive LIKE!!!

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! The amazing Paul Solet is back bitches!! His sophomore follow up to his indie hit Grace, Dark Summer; hits VOD and select North American theatres today. :)
(Pictured above - Joe Lynch, Paul Solet and Adam Green)
Now I fucking ADORE this man. Grace is one of my all time favourite horrors (see my blog on it HERE), and despite the fact he's a boy....this sexy Boston boy just totally GETS women. Which makes me love him even more. Combine that with the fact that he has teamed up with my beloved Adam Barnick, or fackin' Bahnick...or Barnipede yet again...it just makes me all the happier a Nerdzilla.
(Pictured above - Paul with Bahnick on Grace)
I have been excited about this film for some time now, and I think y'all should be too.
Check out this featurette where Adam Barnick speaks to Paul Solet about how he created an "otherworldly glow" in Dark Summer. It's very cool, and a superb bit of advice for filmmakers too. Yup, yup, yup. :) Also check out this interview that Paul did with Ron Purtee as well, for The Ron Purtee Show. It's ace. And you can see what I mean about his sexy accent. Haha. :)
