The Middle Finger & Essex Spacebin available on Blu-ray NOW!


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!


Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, S éamus Hanly proves himself to be a true independent artist by Directing, Writing, Scoring, and Starring in
The Middle Finger. Drawing inspiration from YouTube critic sensation Red Letter Media’s Gorilla Interrupted and one of Troma’s own donations to the superhero genre Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., Hanly has created a film that Film Ireland’s Jonathan Victory lovingly described as “Dumb in a clever way.”

Directed by: S éamus Hanly


Follow the adventures of the lovable Lorraine Willy, a middle-aged woman who has suffered a life of mental illness. Lorraine believes she has been infused by God with a divine purpose that only she (and an Intergalactic Rasta named Hogan) can fathom. She begins her journey looking for a “star key” – which she believes can help her access a parallel world known as the 7th Realm where she hopes to meet the maker.
Seeking to conquer time and space with help from her friends & family, a Nissan Skyline and a PDF of Amen-Ra’s original Essex Pyramid construction specs, will Lorraine herald the existence of a portal to another world?


Andrew Pollard from StarburstMagazine.com claims, Essex Spacebin is a “hugely enjoyable romp through a landscape that feels quintessentially British yet completely otherworldly” and YouTube comedic sensation Cassetteboy told Hollinshead and Thompson, “The ending is a triumph, absolutely perfect and incredibly funny. You’ve created something very very strange, and completely unique.”

Directed by: David Hollinshead and Phil Thompson
