We're creeping ever closer to the spooky season, and of course your favorite streamers are ramping up to celebrate the occasion in style. Today, Hulu and Disney+ have announced their Huluween and Hallowstream lineups - and trust us when we say you're not going to want to miss a second of either.
One of the highlights of this year's Huluween lineup is Appendage, the feature directorial debut from Anna Zlokovic, based on her 2021 short of the same name.
Appendage stars Hadley Robinson (Utopia), Kausar Mohammed (Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous), Emily Hampshire (12 Monkeys) and Brandon Mychal Smith (Phil of the Future). The deliciously gloopy-sounding synopsis reads as follows:
Hannah (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.
Here's the trailer for Appendage - and it's a doozy:
Appendage hits Hulu on October 2. Now, check out Hulu and Disney+ absolutely stacked spooky season line-up below (settle in because this is a LONG read):
