The official teaser for Zack Parker’s Indiana-produced indie chiller Proxy has hit the web courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter. The film will have its world premiere at the 38th Toronto Film Festival as part of the Vanguard section on September 10th, 2013.
The follow-up to the Parker’s critically acclaimed Scalene stars Alexia Rasmussen (Mary Not Seen), Alexa Havins (Torchwood), Kristina Klebe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) and Joe Swanberg (You’re Next).
Longtime TIFF programmer Colin Geddes said:
Be warned: Proxy begins with some deeply disturbing content, but this immensely challenging thriller will reward audiences who stick with it as it delves into very dark territory and confronts our every assumption and belief about what we have seen.
Co-written by Parker and Kevin Donner, this looks like it has some serious potential.
We already shared the very first images and posters for the movie, now it’s time to take the very first look at one pretty cool trailer below.
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.
