STING In Theaters April 12th


Your Biggest Fear Just Got Bigger

Interview With Writer/Director Kiah Roache-Turner and Alyla Browne(Charlotte)

STING arrives in theaters on April 12th and if you are a fan of Horror films you don’t want to miss this one. 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. When her pet Spider begins to grow bigger, well things aren’t going to be the same in their home.

We chatted with Writer and Director Kiah Roache-Turner and Alyla Browne(Charlotte) about their experience making the film.

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.

Director’s Notes

He describes himself as intensely arachnophobic – since being bitten by a spider in a sandpit as a toddler…a big, black spider his mother tells him. “Anything with eight legs freaks me out. I have a visceral reaction to spiders. I can’t breathe; it’s like I am having a panic attack. It’s a proper phobia. Ironically, the spider in our film is a big black spider – just bigger than usual! I’ve magnified my worst nightmare by a huge amount,” Kiah says.

“I think the best stories are the personal ones. And if you’re a horror filmmaker, the best way to tell a scary story is to find the thing that scares you the most and put it in the story. The thing that scares me the most is the idea of a spider the size of a Pitbull terrier.”
