Indie Trailer Sunday: Zack Parker's Unnerving Horror Thriller 'Proxy'
"I think you're the only one who understands…" Today's indie trailer is for the psychological horror thriller Proxy, from filmmaker Zack Parker, of the indie horror Scalene before this. Actress Alexia Rasmussen plays a pregnant woman who is attacked and finds solace in new friends at a support group. But things get a bit twisted when she finds out more about new friends and their child. The cast includes Joe Swanberg, Alexa Havins and Kristina Klebe. This trailer makes the film look incredibly unsettling, focusing on the psychological aspects over the in-your-face horror. This may scare some folks more than others. Take a look.
Watch the full theatrical trailer for Zack Parker's Proxy, direct from IFC's YouTube:
Synopsis: Esther (Alexia Rasmussen) feels alone in this world. When she is viciously attacked by a hooded assailant, it almost seems to be a blessing in disguise when Esther finds consolation in a support group, especially from the kindly Melanie (Havins). The two women strike up a close friendship and Esther's life of sadness and solitude is opened up to understanding and even acceptance. However, their bond gets increasingly dangerous as they can no longer tell what's real and what's in their heads. Proxy is directed by Zack Parker (of Scalene, Quench, Inexchange previously), from a screenplay by Parker & Kevin Donner. After premiering at TIFF last year, IFC Midnight will release Proxy in theaters + VOD starting April 18th.
