StudioCanal has debuted the trailer for the super creepy crawly ‘Sting,’ fair warning all you arachnophobes, the Weta Workshop are behind the horrifying, hyper-realistic practical effects.

On a stormy night in New York City, a mysterious egg falls from the sky and smashes through the window of a rundown apartment building. From it, a strange little spider emerges and is discovered by Charlotte, a rebellious, lonely 12-year-old girl obsessed with comic books. She names it Sting.

As Charlotte’s fascination increases, so does Sting’s insatiable appetite. Growing at a monstrous rate, neighbours and their pets start to go missing. Soon, Charlotte’s family realise they have become the prey of a ravenous supersized arachnid with a taste for human flesh… and Charlotte is the only one who knows how to stop it.

Written and directed by ‘Wyrmwood’ creator Kiah Roache-Turne, the movie stars Ryan Corr, Alyla Browne, Penelope Mitchell (Hellboy), Robyn Nevin (Relic, Wolf Like Me), Noni Hazlehurst (The End) and Jermaine Fowler (The Blackening).

Also in trailers – “For centuries, there was harmony…” Full trailer drops for ‘Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire’
