Proxy, a chilling Hitchcockian thriller co-written and directed by Zack Parker. The story follows Esther Woodhouse (Alexia Rasmussen), a pregnant mother who is attacked by a hooded man in a needless fight. When she joins a support group where everyone seems kind and helpful at first, Esther soon learns that her new friends, including the eager Melanie Michaels (Alexa Havins) are not what they really seem… Nominated for a New Visions Award for Best Picture, Proxy is a stylish, well-acted chiller with a suitable Hitchcock-flavored score by The Newton Brothers.

The Newton Brothers (aka Andrew Grush and Taylor Stewart) are a duo of musicians who have been creating music together since their childhood days. On their scores, Taylor and Andy play piano, guitars, basses, clarinet, flute, accordion, sax, harmonica, percussion, various organs, kazoo, cello and wine glasses - an eclectic bunch of instruments to create unusual sounds for unusual films. Their recent credits include Dan Schechter’s Life of Crime (from the book, “The Switch” by Elmore Leonard), Mike Flanagan’s Oculus and Elizabeth Allen’s Careful What You Wish For ( which was Co-scored with John and Josh Debney).

“This is our 4th collaboration with director Zack Parker“ says Taylor Stewart, one half of The Newton Brothers team. “He really gave us complete freedom to write whatever we wanted, so we chose to go in a more classical direction and use music as a tool to mislead the audience and gain sympathy and compassion for characters. Some scenes are incredibly dark and brutal… One scene in particular was shot all in slow motion, blood everywhere but complete silence. It felt like this emotional ballet and thats exactly how we scored it.“

The score for Proxy doesn’t shy away from it’s obvious Bernard Herrmann influences, creating what may be the best tribute to the composer’s work since Richard Band’s Re-Animator. The string-heavy underscore creates suspense from the first moment to the last, underscoring Esther’s growing distrust in the sudden new friends around her. The music celebrates the Hitchcock/Herrmann and de Palma/Donaggio collaborations without aping them, adding its own spin to the formula. Imagine what would happen if the Psycho orchestra performed the score to Vertigo and you’ll get a clear idea of what kind of music to expect.
