Forget about New York City’s “rat czar,” there’s a new exterminator in town and he’s hunting a killer spider in the new movie Sting.

Jermaine Fowler (The Blackening) plays pest exterminator Frank in the thriller. Frank responds to a call when the residents of a rundown Big Apple apartment complex hear something strange.

“You called about the noises in your walls, right?” Frank asks in the trailer.

The film takes a terrifying turn when a mysterious object falls from the sky and smashes through the window of the building. The object is an egg, with a little spider inside. Once the egg hatches, the spider quickly grows into a blood-sucking monster.

The movie also stars Ryan Corr (House of the Dragon), Penelope Mitchell (Hellboy), Robyn Nevin (Top of the Lake), Noni Hazlehurst (The End), and Alyla Browne (Three Thousand Years of Longing).

Browne plays Charlotte, a 12-year-old girl who adopts the spider as a pet before it grows into a terrifying creature.

“Can a spider grow twice as big in a couple of hours?” Charlotte asks.

When the spider begins to kill everything in sight, Charlotte starts to feel guilty. “It’s all my fault,” she says.

Sting is written and directed by Kiah Roache-Turner.

“Anything with eight legs freaks me out. I have a visceral reaction to spiders,” Roache-Turner said in a statement. “I’ve basically taken my worst nightmare and magnified it by a huge amount.”

The film is produced by Jamie Hilton, Michael Pontin, and British producer Chris Brown.

Sting arrives in theaters on April 12.
