Ahead of its World Premiere at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival, IFC Midnight acquired the campy creature feature Stung, a new horror focusing on two catering staff at a fancy garden party who battle a mutated species of wasp.
Matt O’Leary (Frailty, Death Sentence), Jessica Cook, Peter Stormare and Lance Henriksen (Aliens) all star in the horror comedy.
In Stung, “For catering staffers Paul and Julia, Mrs. Perch’s fancy garden party at her remote country villa is nothing out of the ordinary. A mishap with toxic plant fertilizer leads to the most unwelcome of dinner guests: giant killer wasps. Director Benni Diez takes audiences on a thrilling, gory rollercoaster ride from campy to creepy, in this delightful and dreadful creature-feature.”
Benni Diez directs, and Christian Becker and Benjamin Munz of Munich and Berlin-based Rat Pack Filmproduction produce.
