Review: Stung, 2015, dir. Benni Diez

STUNG-POSTER-RED-R1

“In the vast and varied catalog of horror film villains, giant bugs have historically been paid little respect. Big damn insects tend to be B-movie fodder for Mystery Science Theater 3000 or drive-ins. If Benni Diez’s Stung proves anything, it’s that relegation to horror’s minor leagues is A-OK. Unlike so many recent high-profile horror projects, such as this year’s breakout hit It Follows or the less-loved Unfriended, Stung coasts on its straightforward retro charm instead of genre deconstruction. It’s a creature feature calibrated to satisfy much simpler, old-fashioned pleasures.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
