With Zack Parker's European-style suspense-thriller set to hit select theaters and VOD platforms this April 18th, IFC has just dished out a chilling new trailer that exposes its eerie, skin-crawling atmosphere. PROXY caused quite a stir during its festival run last year and it's one we've been eagerly waiting for ever since—check out the new trailer below!
PROXY promises to challenge the traditional cinematic form and has reunited Parker with The Newton Brothers to compose the score as well as Jim Timperman as Director of Photography to lens the film. Here's what the movie is about:
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.
Directed by Zack Parker, Proxy stars Alexia Rasmussen, Alexa Havins, Kristina Klebe, and Joe Swanberg. The screenplay was penned by Parker and Kevin Donner and was produced by Parker’s Along the Tracks Productions and Faust Checho’s FSC Productions.
