Disney’s 20th Digital Studio and Hulu Originals have released some new details on an upcoming horror comedy film called “Appendage”, which is going to be getting its premiere at the South by Southwest Film festival in March.
The film is about Hannah, who is a young fashion designer, seems fine on the surface, but secretly struggles with debilitating self-doubt. Soon these buried feelings begin to make Hannah physically sick and sprout into a ferocious growth on her body: The Appendage. As Hannah’s health declines, The Appendage grows more powerful and begins to fuel her anxieties – her perceived lack of talent at work, her deteriorating relationships with her boyfriend and best friend, and her parents’ lack of love and understanding. At her breaking point, Hannah makes a shocking discovery— there are others out there like her.
“Appendage” stars Hadley Robinson, who has previously starred in “Little Women” and “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”. It will also star Kausar Mohammed (The Flash, 4400) and Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek).
It was filmed in North Carolina and New York. The film has been directed and written by Anna Zlokovic, who has previously created a short horror film of the same name for the second season of 20th Digital’s Bite Size Halloween, which was released on Hulu in 2021.
“Appendage” was developed by 20th Digital Studio with David Worthen Brooks, Arbi Pedrossian, and Jenna Cavelle serving as executive producers. Also serving as producers are Hadley Robinson, Anna Zlokovic and Alex Familian. Production services were carried out by the film’s producer Katrina Kudlick through her production company, Fever Dream Studios. Emma Buerklin serves as co-producer.
The film will be released on Hulu in the fall, and I’d expect the film to follow “Grimcutty” and “Matriach” in being released as a Star Original on Disney+ internationally.
