The Living Finger is a classic Boy meets Girl story… assuming the Girl is a severed finger, and the Boy is tasked with finding her a living host to attach to, but let’s see what writer Garth Matthams has to say.
Synopsis: When well-meaning Jason discovers a disembodied finger that appears to be “alive,” it quickly becomes the sole focus of his life. He names the digit “Wendy,” learns to communicate with it via “tap code,” and discovers that the one thing Wendy wants more than anything else is a living, breathing human body to attach to. But, as soon as Jason helps Wendy secure an unwitting “host,” problems arise. Soon, Jason has collected a bathtub full of corpses, a rightly suspicious sister, and a best friend hell-bent on selling Wendy to the highest bidder. Even worse, Jason is beginning to realize that he may have acted a bit rashly, especially when Wendy begins displaying an unhealthy fascination with knives. Is there any way for Jason to set things right without becoming another casualty?
With a quirky sense of humor and a strong focus on relationships, The Living Finger could be the slightly-drunken love child of films such as Cabin in the Woods, Ex Machina, and Bride of Frankenstein. The Living Finger is quiet, small-scale horror that focuses heavily on its characters, their relationships, and the ultimate repercussions of ill-advised actions.
