New Irish SuperHero: The Middle Finger

Irish filmmaker Séamus Hanly gives The Middle Finger.

The Middle Finger tells the story of Dennis (Hanly), a lonely and frustrated teenager who is reluctantly transformed into a superhero. Embedded with the symbol of a hand showing its middle finger, Dennis must awkwardly endure his training and save his world from extinction.

Dublin man Séamus Hanly has really out done himself with this one. The filmmaker took on the roles of Directing, Writing, Scoring, and Starring in The Middle Finger. Film Ireland’s Jonathan Victory described the film as “Dumb in a clever way.”

“DC could take a page out of Hanly’s book, as The Middle Finger trades in the morose superhero cliché for a fun, clever superhero tale.” -DiceOnFilm

Troma is the longest running truly independent film company in American history and it has come to Ireland to acquire Hanly’s comedy feature film. A-list actors such as Samuel L Jackson, Billy Bob Thornton and South Park’s Matt Parker and Trey Stone got their bug breaks with the iconic cult film company.

The Middle Finger has been officially selected byfilm festivals such as Miami International Film Festival, YES! Let’s Make a Movie Film Festival, and the 7th Underground Cinema Film Festival, and Troma Entertainment hopes the film will be seen in many more to come!
