Based on the eponymous short film that appeared on Hulu’s ‘Bite Size Halloween’ series, ‘Appendage’ is a horror comedy-drama film written and helmed by Anna Zlokovic that focuses on a young fashion designer named Hannah who seems to have a bright future ahead of her. Appearing to be doing just fine on the outside, she struggles to cope with self-doubt on the inside, so much so that these feelings manifest into something that makes her physically sick and turn into a strange growth on her body — the Appendage.
With Hannah’s health on the decline, the Appendage feeds off of her weaknesses and deteriorates her condition further by fueling her anxieties, which include her self-doubt regarding her work, her relationship with her best friend and boyfriend, and her parents’ lack of understanding and love. Right when she loses all hope, she finds out that there are other people out there suffering from the same. The horrific tale unfolds in New York City, inside Hannah’s apartment and various other seemingly eerie sites, sparking questions regarding the actual filming sites in the minds of the viewers.

A major chunk of ‘Appendage’ was lensed in and around Wilmington, a port city located in the coastal southeastern region of North Carolina.

Other locations that feature in the backdrop of several pivotal scenes are 20 South Front Street, 103 South Front Street, and 1938 South Live Oak Drive.
New York City, New York
Since ‘Appendage’ is set in New York City, the filming unit reportedly recorded a few key scenes on location, especially some establishing aerial shots, in the Big Apple.
