Zack Parker’s indie horror film Proxy was just recently announced to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival and in order to build some hype they have released the film’s official festival trailer and it looks damn good. The narration in the trailer coupled with some truly disturbing images makes for a hell of an effectively creepy trailer that will no doubt find a way to get under your skin.
Parker’s flick brings a European-style suspense-thriller that is said to challenge the traditional cinematic form. The director will re-team with The Newton Brothers to compose the score as well as Jim Timperman as Director of Photography to lens the film. While Proxy has been quietly creeping its way into the world of horror, it will certainly leave a mark with this chilling trailer. I can’t wait to see what kind of splash this one makes at TIFF this year.
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 is being produced by Parker’s Along the Tracks Productions and Faust Checho’s FSC Productions.
