One of the most disturbing films I’ve seen this year is Zack Parker’s PROXY. It’s one of those films that just kind of sticks with you and I’m glad to say that now you will all be able to see it for yourself thanks to IFC Midnight.
Aug. 12th they will be bringing the film to Blu-ray, if this one isn’t on your radar yet – put it there now. Here’s what it’s about:
In the last month of her pregnancy, Esther Woodhouse is savagely beaten in an alleyway by an unknown assailant and loses her baby. To aid in her recovery, she attends a support group for grieving parents where she meets Melanie, who claims her son and husband were killed by a drunk driver.
Esther and Melanie develop a friendship, but soon it becomes clear that both are harboring much darker secrets than they initially let on. And when both their lives are transformed by another shocking act of violence, they find that recovery may be impossible.
Not sure if you’ll love it or hate it – but it’s one that you should see.
