By the time a weirdo (Clifton Collins Jr.) makes his evil plans known, everything goes to seed. Diez should take some time and not just try and wing it.
As the caterers for a fancy party assemble in a lush backyard, they swat away strangely aggressive insects. Once the guests assemble, including the mayor (Lance Henriksen), the wasps and bees grow to the size of drones the flying-plane kind. They begin stinging, gouging and piercing the partygoers. Larvae are left inside of people, and giant bugs pop out of heads and chests. Its up to a pair of flirty bartenders to save the day.

Stung review: Call the swat team, insect horror flick bites
Director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, whats left out here is the fun.
The practical effects, influenced by 80s movies like The Thing, are refreshing in our CGI era. But the rest of the movie is no Thing.
