Review by Mark Schwab
Ok, so let's just get something out of the way right at the start here. WIthin the first 10 minutes of this film, a VERY pregnant young woman leaves a doctor's office after having her unborn child ultrasounded, walks into an alley, gets hit over the head with a brick by an unknown attacker, then said attacker takes the same brick and begins beating on the (now unconscious) very pregnant woman's stomach/unborn baby over and over again (with dreadful "squish" sounds) causing her to be rushed to the hospital where she manages to regain consciousness just in time to watch doctors cut the dead baby out of her before they sedate her back into unconsciousness.
Sounds like your type of movie? Then I guess you should read on but watching the 2014 horror/splatter film "Proxy", I kept thinking of Kathy Bates from Misery when she exclaims "Well isn't that an oogie mess!". I think the target audience for this was mysoginistic OB/GYN's.
The story of how Esther ((Alexia Rasmussen) goes about dealing with the trauma of being attacked and losing her baby is hopelessly sluggish. There are basically two grotesque sequences mashed onto 90 minutes of boring psychoanalysis, mediocre-to-amateurish acting and pretentious storytelling. Throw in a bit of gratuitous homophobic nonsense and you have a very unappetizing package that should be returned to sender.
