Netflix has released a first look at its upcoming horror series Chambers, which it describes as: “a young heart attack survivor becomes consumed by the mystery surrounding the heart that saved her life. However, the closer she gets to uncovering the truth about her donor’s sudden death, the more she starts taking on the characteristics of the deceased — some of which are troublingly sinister.”
The series, created by Leah Rachel, is executive produced by Rachel and Alfonso Gomez Rejon, along with producers Winnie Kemp, Wolfgang Hammer, Jennifer Yale, and Steve Gaghan. In a press release, Rachel says of the series, which stars Uma Thurman (Kill Bill), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), Sivan Alyra Rose (The Entrada, Running Shadow):
“Taking place in a mystic, New Age pocket of Arizona, Chambers is a psychological horror story that explores the different ways we metabolize trauma. But what starts out as a grounded human story eventually pivots into something far more strange and fucked up than you were expecting.”
Given an uptick of popularity in horror films and TV series recently (with Netflix successes like the Haunting of Hill House, as well as the wider releases like Jordan Peele‘s new film Us), it’s no surprise that Netflix is leaning into that genre even more. This story in particular feels of the ilk where someone gets the transplanted hand of a killer and can’t control it, but given Rachel’s description, it seems like it’s going to eschew that expectation almost immediately. Here’s hoping!
Chambers will premiere April 26th, and also stars Lilliya Reid (Vienna, The Fantomes), Nicholas Galitzine (Share, Handsome Devil), Kyanna Simone Simpson (Black Lightning), Lilli Kay (Paterno), Sarah Mezzanotte (The Wolves) and introduces Griffin Powell-Arcand. Check out the teaser images below:
