Pregancy horror is something that can be really disturbing when done right. Just look at films like BABY BLOOD and INSIDE, if you need proof. However, it can also fall completely flat, if not handled correctly (see: DEVIL'S DUE). Still, there's just something about the process of pregnancy that makes it almost a body horror subject... And that's probably why it interests me so much.
Why am I talking about this? Well, it's because IFC Midnight has announced that they will be releasing Zack Parker's film, PROXY, to Blu-ray and DVD on August 12th, 2014.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
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.
It definitely has me intrigued, so I will be checking it out.
You can pre-order the DVD or Blu-ray from Amazon now.
