IFC Sends Horror Home by Proxy
We told you months ago that director Zack Parker's horror feature Proxy (review) secured North American distribution via IFC Midnight, and now we finally have a release date for you! Look for the flick on VOD April 18 with a DVD release to follow.
Alexia Rasmussen, Alexa Havins, Kristina Klebe, and Joe Swanberg all 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.
