I could be wrong, but there’s a distinct lack of original comedy coming from the streaming service and startling amount of true crime documentaries and dark psychological thrillers.
I’m not having a go, it’s just hard not to notice, you know?
Anyway, you’ll never guess what, but there’s a new psychological thriller coming out, courtesy of Netflix and it looks pretty darn good.
Called Chambers, it follows teenager Sasha Yazzie – Sivan Alyra Rose – as she struggles with the guilt following a heart-transplant. She meets the family, with Uma Therman as mum Nancy Lefevre and Lilliya Reid as the late daughter, Becky, promising to honour her.
As Sasha tries to deal with the idea that her being alive is thanks to someone dying, things start to get weird. She starts showing characteristics of the late Becky, as her heart beats within her body.
That’s not it though, since Sasha then starts to discover more about the untimely death of young Becky.
Divergent’s Tony Goldwyn also stars as Ben, Becky’s dad, an apparently “warm charm and practical business acumen” who “conceals a mystical bent that knows no bounds”.
Here’s the creepy first trailer:
The series description reads:
“Consumed by the mystery surrounding the donor heart that saved her life, a young patient starts taking on sinister characteristics of the deceased.“
Series creator, Leah Rachel, spoke about Chambers, saying:
“Taking place in a mystic, New Age pocket of Arizona, Chambers is a psychological horror story that explores the different ways we metabolise trauma.
“But what starts out as a grounded human story eventually pivots into something far more strange and f*cked up than you were expecting.”
You can watch Chambers on Netflix come the 26th of April.
