We’ve been following filmmaker Zack Parker’s career for several years here at Dread Central, and we’re pleased that his latest, Proxy (review), is such a winner. Also a winner is this new video released for the flick that wishes us all a Happy Mother’s Day!
Proxy is now playing in select theaters and on VOD from IFC Films. Alexia Rasmussen, Alexa Havins, Kristina Klebe, and Joe Swanberg star.
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.
Proxy is a European-style suspense-thriller that promises to challenge the traditional cinematic form. Parker has reunited with The Newton Brothers to compose the score as well as Jim Timperman as Director of Photography to lens the film. A notable addition to Parker’s crew is seasoned Special F/X Make-Up Artist James Ojala. Proxy was shot on location in Eastern Indiana.
