‘Sting’ Trailer: If You’re Scared Of Spiders, Definitely Don’t Watch This


Spiders have their place in the world. They eat bugs and generally mind their own business out in nature. But sometimes, they violate boundaries and decide to make a home in your home. I can tolerate that, but what I can’t tolerate is said arachnid growing bigger by the second and eating my neighbors. Such is the situation in Kiah Roache-Turner‘s new film, Sting.

Read the full synopsis:

One cold, stormy night in New York City, a mysterious object falls from the sky and smashes through the window of a rundown apartment building. It is an egg, and from this egg emerges a strange little spider…

The creature is discovered by Charlotte, a rebellious 12-year-old girl obsessed with comic books. Despite her stepfather Ethan’s best efforts to connect with her through their comic book co-creation Fang Girl, Charlotte feels isolated. Her mother and Ethan are distracted by their new baby and are struggling to cope, leaving Charlotte to bond with the spider. Keeping it as a secret pet, she names it Sting.

As Charlotte’s fascination with Sting increases, so does its size. Growing at a monstrous rate, Sting’s appetite for blood becomes insatiable. Neighbors’ pets start to go missing, and then the neighbors themselves. Soon Charlotte’s family and the eccentric characters of the building realize that they are all trapped, hunted by a ravenous supersized arachnid with a taste for human flesh… and Charlotte is the only one who knows how to stop it.

A snowbound, single-location creature feature about a giant killer spider?? Sign us up! But, if you need more convincing, just watch the official trailer below:

Roache-Turner is no stranger to the gross and gory, as he directed previous films such as Nekrotronic and the Wyrmwood series. But now, he’s not tackling demons and other supernatural threats. This time, his horror seems more grounded (or as grounded as it can be in a movie about a giant killer spider).

Ryan Corr, Alyla Browne, Penelope Mitchell, Robyn Nevin, Noni Hazelhurst, Silvia Colloca, Danny Kim, and Jermaine Fowler

Sting comes exclusively to theaters on April 12, 2024.
