The first official image has been released from horror comedy Stung. Check it out below.
The film, which focuses on a giant wasp, is being released by Rat Pack Film Produktion and Twitch’s XYZ Films, and is being directed by German special effects wizard Benni Diez. Diez has worked on Lars Von Triers Melancholia, and has been making commercials after his first short film, Kingz. The ultra talented director has been working on the feature length film, Stung.
The film has been described as “a creature feature in the old style – a slyly tongue in cheek, action driven horror comedy that calls back to the days before creature features became the sole provenance of sub-Corman knock-em-out-cheap hack jobs. Think Tremors or Slither on a more compact scale”.
Matt O’Leary (Frailty, Death Sentence), Jessica Cook, Peter Stormare and Lance Henriksen (Aliens) all star in the horror comedy.
Adam Aresty wrote the screenplay, which is “about a fancy garden party that goes wrong when a local species of wasp mutates, resulting in an attack by giant insects. It is left to two catering staff to thwart the onslaught and in the process develop a romance.”
