Zack Parker's PROXY was recently announced to be in competition at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (as part of the fest's Vanguard program), which is cool news indeed for the indie horror director and his film. Today a poster for the film has premiered, presenting a disturbing look at a bloody fetus. Obviously it's not too graphic, but still creepy enough to get under the skin.
Alexia Rasmussen, Alexa Havins, Kristina Klebe and Joe Swanberg star in PROXY, which has the following synopsis:
A very pregnant Esther Woodhouse (Rasmussen) is walking home after her latest OB appointment, when she is brutally attacked and disfigured by a hooded assailant. When Esther seeks consolation in a support group, she finds friendship and empathy in Melanie (Havins), another mother scarred with tragedy. Esther soon begins to believe that the horrific event might be a bittersweet act of fate. However, friendship and empathy can be very dangerous things when accepted by the wrong people.
We'll let you know when PROXY gets an official distributer/release date.
