Business woman Amanda (Sabina Friedman-Seitz) just can't stand the
sight of physical imperfection - so when one of her employees, Walter
(Stan Madray), comes to work one day with a finger missing, she totaly
loses it, so much so that her husband Peter (Alex Zuko) makes her see a
psychiatrist, Dr. Scotty (Michael Richardson). Dr. Scotty tells Amanda to
face her fear and confront Walter - but when she's about to she learns
that Walter has lost another finger, upon which Amanda freaks out even
more. Now Walter claims that two hoodlums, one in a panda (Jeremy Gardner)
and once in a clown mask (Sterling William), show up at his place every
day to cut off another of his fingers, but Dr. Scotty thinks that's just a
lie and Walter just takes pleasure in self-mutilation.
Amanda reads Dr.
Scotty's self-help book on overcoming fears and comes to her own
conclusions. She stakes out Walter's house, and indeed the panda and the
clown do show up to take another of Walter's fingers - so she follows the
panda home and dognaps his dog to hold hostage, then starts sending
threatening notes to Panda. Panda soon enough suspects everyone to have
conspired against him, he kills the Clown, starts suspecting his boss Fox
(Michael St. Michaels) behind it, and in a blood frenzy one day cuts off
all of Walter's remaining fingers. Meanwhile, Amanda has found what she
believes the perfect way to overcome her fears - but since this involves
packing a gun and going to Walter's house, things might get bloody ...
Fingers is a mad movie: Its plot is far-fetched, full of
exaggerations, and often it lacks reason - and yet, as a whole it makes
narrative sense, as while it's definitely a black comedy at heart, it
doesn't play things merely for the laughs but shows a definite joy
spinning its yarn, and despite all the utter madness and mutilation
humour, it also shows heart one wouldn't expect from a movie like this.
This is also mirrored in the direction that certainly doesn't shy away
from violence, but doesn't play it for the spectacle, and in the ensemble
cast that mostly plays it straight, to make this one wonderfully weird
