Sasha Mark as Parker

Set over the course of one evening, Parker and his boyfriend, Darren, find themselves detoured on their trip and going towards Parker’s late kokum’s cabin. The men make a disturbing discovery which creates tension within the pair’s already unhealthy relationship. Shot in one continuous take, Terror/Forming, will show paranoia, anxiety and tension bubbling to the surface in real time as the situation escalates and devolves into chaos.

Terror/Forming is my way of honouring traditional oral storytelling while also adding a contemporary lens of mumblegore into the mix to make this narrative both thrilling and tense experience for the audience.
