Zack Parker has given THR the official festival trailer for his indie thriller Proxy, which will play at this September’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Directed by Parker, of the critically acclaimed Scalene, the film stars Alexia Rasmussen (The Comedy, “Mary Not Seen,” the short film that would become Martha Marcy May Marlene), Alexa Havins (“Torchwood”), Kristina Klebe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) and Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next).
In the pic, “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.“
