On a cold, stormy night, a mysterious egg falls from the sky and smashes through the window of a run-down New York City apartment building. From this egg emerges a strange little spider that is discovered by Charlotte, a rebellious 12-year-old girl who keeps it as a secret pet named Sting. As Charlotte’s fascination grows, so does Sting and its insatiable appetite for blood. Neighbours’ pets start to go missing, and so do the neighbours themselves. Soon, Charlotte’s family and the eccentric tenants of the building realise that they are all trapped in the web of a ravenous, supersized arachnid with a taste for human flesh – and Charlotte is the only one who knows how to stop it.

The latest work from Sydney-based maverick Kiah Roache-Turner, Sting is a pitch-perfect, old-school monster movie romp, featuring an iconic Aussie cast (Ryan Corr, Alyla Browne, Noni Hazelhurst, Penelope Mitchell, Silvia Colloca) facing off against an iconic monster. 

Get your exterminator suit on, and let's blast some creepy crawlies!
