In the chilling new film Sting, a visitor crashes through a windowpane, a monstrous spider with an insatiable hunger. This unsettling premise is the foundation of Sting. The soon-to-be-released film that blends sci-fi chills with heart-pounding horror.

A Lonely Girl’s World, Turned Upside Down

Meet Charlotte, a twelve-year-old girl whose imagination is her escape from the harsh realities of her life. Surrounded by a family that feels distant, she finds solace in comic books. She dreams of becoming her superhero, “Fang Girl.” Little did she know, a mysterious object streaked across the night sky, and a seemingly harmless spider landed on her fire escape. Charlotte christens the creature “Sting.”As their bond blossoms, so does the spider. It begins to morph from a curious pet into a terrifying predator.

From Fantasy to Ferocious Reality

The film’s chilling synopsis paints a picture of escalating terror. Vanishing pets, panicked whispers, and the realization that a monstrous arachnid stalks the building replaces the once-innocent bond. Trapped within the confines of her apartment, Charlotte becomes the protagonist of a real-life nightmare. The line between her imaginary world of superheroes and the horrifying reality blurs dangerously. Yet, amidst the growing shadows of fear, a flicker of hope remains. Charlotte might hold the key to stopping the monster she befriended. Can she muster the courage and determination to become the “Fang Girl” she envisioned?

A Talented Team Behind the Terror

Helmed by director Kiah Roache-Turner, Sting boasts a talented cast, including Ryan Corr (“House of the Dragon”), Alyla Browne (Three Thousand Years of Longing), and Penelope Mitchell (Hellboy). Adding to the film’s chilling authenticity are the incredible practical effects crafted by the five-time Academy Award®-winning Weta Workshop, led by the legendary Richard Taylor (Blade Runner 2049, King Kong).

More Than Just a Creature Feature

While Sting promises a thrilling and terrifying cinematic experience guaranteed to send shivers down even the bravest spines, it is much more than just a monster movie. It explores themes of family, the struggles of isolation, and the unexpected courage that can emerge when faced with unimaginable threats.

Get Ready To Be Caught In Its Web

Sting crawls into select theaters nationwide on April 12th, 2024, from Well Go USA. While the trailer offers a glimpse into the film’s unsettling atmosphere, caution is necessary: if spiders send chills down your spine, proceed with caution. For those seeking a unique blend of sci-fi thrills and heart-pounding horror, Sting promises to be an experience you won’t soon forget. Watch the new clip below and get wrapped up in Sting.
