First stills and teaser poster for Zack Parker's 'Proxy'

The teaser poster and first stills have just been released for Zack Parker's upcoming movie, Proxy. The film is due for release later this year, and if Parker's last movie, Scalene, is anyhting to go by this should be well worth keeping an eye out for. After the break you can check out the new stills as well as the film's synopsis. Proxy stars Alexia Rasmussen, Alexa Havins, Kristina Klebe and Joe Swanberg.

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 (SCALENE, DETACHMENT, with score contributions to BABEL, DA VINCI CODE) 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 (TRUE BLOOD, HELLBOY II, LADY IN THE WATER, X-MEN: LAST STAND). PROXY was shot on location in Eastern Indiana last summer, and looks to begin its festival run this fall.
