Stung suffers from some fairly poor CGI to start with, however fortunately it doesn’t final too lengthy. As soon as the wasp start to chunk folks, main to large wasps ripping out of the our bodies of the bitten, the sensible results swing into excessive gear they usually all look actually superior. The scene with the primary swarm attacking is rather well carried out. Kudos to the make-up staff led by Meike Gfrörer.” Bloody Disgusting


Stung would have carried out itself a favor by leaning additional in a single route over the opposite as an alternative of tiptoeing on a tightrope between not tongue-in-cheek sufficient to be campy enjoyable and never dramatic sufficient to be taken severely.  Needing extra animation in its motion and extra charisma in its solid, Stung is simply slick sufficient to be an ordinary killer bug film with too slight of a humorous edge.” Tradition Crypt

“Maybe a spot extra unpredictability would have helped too: it’s vastly apparent from the start who’s going to outlive, and you may nearly predict the order through which they’ll chunk the large one. This doesn’t make it a foul time, and it’s clearly higher than the SyFy Unique film stage of manufacturing I used to be anticipating [I’m looking at you, Dragonwasps].” Movie Blitz

“This creature characteristic from director Benni Diez (who did the visuals for Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia) is gigantic enjoyable, boasting a brilliant solid taking part in some downright kooky characters, some gleeful gore and tremendous SFX (each sensible and digital), plus some snicker out loud in-jokes that every one serve to pay homage to the large bug monster style. Adore it!” Kultguy’s Preserve


“Some “animal assault” films are value seeing solely for the scary bits, however Stung tries fairly laborious to supply us with some partaking characters and some humorous moments earlier than it unleashes its swarm of big, livid wasps. That effort alone is worthy of observe, and doubly so when it leads to a comedy/horror/romance that really delivers in all three departments.” Nerdist

“It follows a really predictable path with acquainted beats, even ending on a observe that you simply’ll greater than probably see coming. It’s an unlucky misstep in an in any other case unbelievable creature characteristic with superior particular results and a lightning-quick story. Diez is an thrilling new expertise on the planet of movie and I can’t wait to see what he does subsequent, particularly with an exquisite debut like Stung forsaking a very bloody mark.” Rhino’s Horror

” …aimed squarely at style followers, who ought to get pleasure from its slick vitality on a modest funds. The extra unique concepts and sensibility which may’ve made it one thing past a good formulaic time-filler are missing right here — though with the narrative door left large open for a sequel, such inventive dangers may very well be taken subsequent time.” Selection
