Huluween is back and just in time for spooky season! Horror takes over Hulu in October, starting with the original body horror, Appendage, marking the debut of writer/director Anna Zlokovic.
Starring Hadley Robinson and Emily Hampshire, the film centers on a self-doubting fashion designer whose buried feelings manifest physically in the form of an extra growth on her body.
Gross! This thing is fleshy and throbbing and sticky. Cronenberg would be proud.
Here’s the synopsis: Hannah (Hadley Robinson), 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 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.
Also in the cast are Kausar Mohammed and Brandon Mychal Smith.
Appendage hits Hulu exclusively on October 2nd.
