    Q&A: Director Benni Diez on His Humorous Monster Homage “STUNG”

    “I want to lure the audience in with romance or drama or the fantastical—and then traumatize them,” director Benni Diez tells FANGORIA of his gonzo underappreciated-workaday-caterers-fight-gargantuan-wasps-and-save-overprivildged-rich-snobs’-bacon flick STUNG. “But only a little bit of trauma!
