Proxy

Indiana-based filmmaker Zack Parker’s previous film, Scalene, was an unsettling thriller based on seemingly normal people behaving very abnormally. That film, built around an uncomfortable to watch but incredible performance by Margo Martindale, earned Parker a fair number of fans in the indie horror scene despite not being a straightforward genre film.
