PROXY is a Horror movie
co-written and directed by Zack Parker. He seems to have found his groove in creating character driven thrillers which dance on the edge of Horror as seen in his last flick SCALENE and now his latest work PROXY. The story focuses on a pregnant lady who is subjected to a traumatic assault and a particular friendship that she forms in the aftermath which could be deception in disguise. IFC acquired the film after it's showing at last year's TIFF. The brand new trailer for PROXY awaits you below.
“As a very-pregnant Esther (Alexia Rasmussen) walks home after a doctor’s appointment, she is viciously attacked by a hooded assailant. In the wake of this traumatic event, the quiet and lonely woman finds some consolation from kindly Melanie (Alexa Havins), whom she meets at a support group. At first, Esther’s life of sadness and solitude seems to be finally opening up to the possibility of a real friendship. That is, until a chance encounter makes it clear
that nothing — and no one — in her life is as it appears. Setting off a chain reaction of increasingly shocking revelations, Proxy twists and turns its way through loss, grief, and death.”
PROXY stars Alexia Rasmussen, Alexa Havins, Kristina Klebe and Joe Swanberg.
Proxy will be in select theaters and VOD April 18th. A Blu-ray release is expected to follow.
