Storyline

For nearly two months, the USS Newark, carrying an experimental, top-secret military cargo, has been lost at sea. When the sub is finally discovered sixty miles off the coast of California, the government, eager to regain the lost cargo, assembles a highly-accomplished salvage team, accompanied by Dr. Carly Ryan - head of the original project - and her assistant. Unaware of the danger lurking within the sub, the team is sent in to recover the cargo and determine the cause of the ship's disappearance. Written by psycroptic

Trivia

Based on the figures (380 feet long, displacing 7800 tons of water) given by the Major General at Pendleton, the USS Newark is a Virginia-class attack submarine. One of the civilian consultants, Lazlo, states the sub costs in excess of $30 million; a Virginia-class submarine actually costs approximately $2 billion, an amount more than 65 times the price Lazlo's declared.

Excellent B-film horror movie!
18 June 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent B-film horror movie that borders between horror and comedy. It is about a genetically mutilated scorpion in outer space. Can it get more unreal? It is a hybrid between "Alien" and "Chain Saw Massacre." The movie was shot in Stockholm with a mixed cast of Americans and Swedes that interact beautifully. Director Martin Munthe does a great job finding the comical highlights in this script and gets a few good laughs out of the audience. The movie was shot with little or no money and it is inspiring to see what can be done with limited resources. Stinger has all qualities of a B-film horror movie. It is comical and scary at the same time and the cast and crew are dedicated to their cause. It is great to see that movies like this can still be made! I would recommend seeing it if you like this type of films.
