Enjoyable. Somewhat easy to anticipate.
25 April 2014 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

The horror part will be seen at one point and never to make an appearance again. It was an interesting ride, had some ups and lows, some almost mystery involved, in the end a so-so way to spend 2 hours. It may seem that it took too long but kinda focuses on 2 stories so it had a lot to cover.

If you're a horror fan looking for a nice way to pass the night, this one right here is an almost thriller alone, so be careful what you do. It has that "May" style on it, goes the same direction just with a different execution that makes it so much more action/thriller than anything else. In rest what can I say, I kinda dig it, nice characters, some intense and surprising scenes, good acting, a story that wanted to be told the way it should be. At times it will even make you look away, cause it can be rough for some, and at others, well, kinda erotic to be honest.

"Proxy" is a movie that will probably help some of the people involved in the making of it, to get the attention they seek. So I'm looking forward into seeing their new projects, if by any chance they stick to the horror part. I will recommend it and even tho I feel I should grade it 6/10, I'm only gonna give it a 5, cause some of you will come for the horror part and you will be mislead. I'm here to tell you, you won't find horror but a good story overall no doubt about it.

Cheers!
