20th Digital Studio and Hulu Originals have released first-look images of Appendage, a horror comedy starring Hadley Robinson (Little Women, I’m Thinking of Ending Things) that will have its world premiere at SXSW next month. Also starring Kausar Mohammed (The Flash, 4400) and Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek), the film from writer-director Anna Zlokovic will stream on Hulu later this year.

Robinson plays Hannah, a young fashion designer, who 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.
Shot in North Carolina and New York, 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 Robinson, 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.
Zlokovic created the short horror film of the same name, which premiered on Hulu in 2021 as part of the second season of 20th Digital’s Bite Size Halloween.
Appendage will be part of 20th Digital’s existing slate of horror features for Hulu, including Grimcutty, Matriarch and the upcoming Clock.
