“Terror Forming” is a futuristic space horror/dark fantasy mixture of a nightmarish scenario, as we are immediately thrust into a high-anxiety, nerve-wracking situation with a doctor trying to save the life of an innocent child.
In order to do so, she must do some spacey high-tech stuff way out of my league, that involves shrinking to a size small enough to enter into what needs removed in order to save the child. That is right. You read read that correctly.
This is the nightmare we start off with. My claustrophobia was on high alert from the beginning.
“Terror Forming” is a futuristic Sci-Fi Spacey adventure involving the world of AI, mixed with hideous creatures, worshipped slithery Queens, and horrific situations.
Now I admit I’m not the biggest fan of high-tech space stories. But this one is filled with some unique brutality that made me grin, probably inappropriately.
It gets bloody, and the term nightmarish doesn’t to the story justice.
And with all of this, the heart of the story is one that may pull at your heartstrings.
A total mixed bag of weirdness, oddities, monsters, grit, and crime. And somehow it becomes a story of survival. It becomes realistic as you wonder if this is what the future has in store for us.
