Intense Horror Thriller “Proxy” Opens 4/18 – Find Out If Can You Stomach the Brutal First Five Minutes

Deciding whether to see Zack Parker’s Proxy, but aren’t sure if you want to because it might be too violent? Allow us to help you decide by posting this clip for you to view.

We wanted to add EXTREME CONTENT WARNING to the title of the post, but it was already too long. So first, EXTREME VIOLENCE WARNING, even for Horror Boom. In fact, Mrs. Horror Boom here felt a little queasy at the ending, and I’ve never even been pregnant. I don’t recommend it if you’re pregnant, especially if you’re worried something will go wrong; same goes if your wife/partner/sibling, etc. is pregnant. As I mentioned earlier in my intro to the review Variety gave it (which was pretty positive), I do know of people who watched Inside while pregnant. If you’re one of those people then hey, watch away. I just don’t want to get yelled at for not warning you. If you’re eating something right now, you may want to set it aside while you watch. Okay?

Oh, and in case you’re wondering about the content, the clip is titled (on YouTube, anyway) as the following: “A Baby Is Beaten From a Pregnant Woman in Controversial Thriller Film ‘Proxy'”. That should weed out some of you right there. Also, over half the various comments on sites that ran the clip that I’ve read have been along the lines of that’s not art, that’s not even horror, that’s sick!  So consider yourself warned (again).

Did Zack Parker make a good movie? You can read the Variety review here, and here’s the link to Rotten Tomatoes and their page for the shocker (67% fresh as of this writing, if you were wondering) where you read many more reviews. Neither of us at Horror Boom have seen it yet (but with the reviews, we will be).

So! Proxy will be available on various VOD platforms in less than 24 hours… or, depending on when you read this, possibly right now.

Good Lord!

Good Lord!

Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno: See The First Official Trailer (And Official Release Date) Right Here In HD!

I am sorry to report that this is a “green band” trailer; and also it appears the movie has been trimmed down enough for an R-Rating (though knowing Roth, he’s not going to let all that Nicotero practical FX work go to waste and we’ll get an unrated version on DVD).  Check out the promising first official trailer below in glorious HD:

We have a bad feeling that some of the footage shown (you can probably figure out what) is from a female circumcision* scene that fortunately does not go all the way. First time I’ve appreciated an Eli Roth film NOT showing something.

Plus…

THE Official Release Date for The Green Inferno is:

September 5th, 2014!

Which is still too goddamned long to wait! Well, hey, we’ve been waiting over a year, might as well wait a few more months. Damnit!

*AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGH! In a Women Studies class in college, they showed us all actual film footage of one, performed with a BROKEN BOTTLE, that scarred me (and probably everyone else there who hadn’t seen it before) for life. A few people bolted out of the auditorium, including one of the few guys in the class. My brain also protected me by deciding to black out the last half of the footage from my memory, but trust me, it was bad enough.
