Fingers is a 2019 American crime comedy horror feature film written and directed by Juan Ortiz (Jennifer Help Us). The Ten East production stars Sabina Friedman-Seitz, Jeremy Gardner, Michael St. Michaels and Michael Richardson.
Amanda has a finger-phobia and an abject loathing of all human strangeness. So she decides to read and take pointers from a recommended self-help book, Doctor Scotty’s ‘Follow Me: I Know The Way’.
Meanwhile, two hitmen are hired by the mysterious Fox (Michael St. Michaels, The Greasy Strangler) to cut the fingers off the mild, mannered Talky Panda to satisfy his lust for revenge. How they connect causes shocks to the system and the need to kill their fears…
Random Media will release Fingers in the USA in September 2020 via Amazon and iTunes.

If the pulp worlds of Elmore Leonard and the head scratch of Inherent Vice’s whodunit arc collided it’d be Fingers. Nothing makes absolute sense, but the result of holding onto the tail of this whacked-out story until the very end is rewarded in a suitably understated, left of centre finale.” Brit Flicks
“It’s more of a quirky comedy with a thriller element than it is a horror and it was so bizarre it left me feeling a little cold. My advice would be to approach with an open mind but if you’re averse to the weird and wonderful, I’d give this one a miss.” Entertainment Focus
“Fingers is about confronting fears that are terrorising your very existence but goes about it in its own unique and peculiar way, with a tense and weird mood that borders on surreal. It’s a smashing looking film with plenty of intelligent elements going on, yet at the same time, I felt it became a bit over-encumbered by its own desire to push the envelope. A good horror film with plenty of dark humour at its edges…” Nerdly
” …Fingers is a satire of both therapy culture, and of a pathologised America chasing its own tail on the quest for closure. The redemptive cure that it delivers is all at once stupid, funny and batshit bonkers.” Projected Figures
