Netflix continues to move full steam ahead on their original horror programming. A recent announcement shared some details and first-look images for their newest project, Chambers, a new horror series starring Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) and Tony Goldwyn (The Belko Experiment, Scandal).
Chambers follows a young heart attack survivor who 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 hour-long series will premiere globally on Netflix in 2019.
Newcomer Sivian Alyra Rose will join Thurman and Goldwyn, with Lilliya Reid (Vienna), Nicholas Galitzine (Share, Handsome Devil), Kyanna Simone Simpson (White Boy Rick, Ma), Lilli Kay (Paterno, Napoli), Sarah Mezzanotte (The Wolves, Six Degrees of Separation) and Griffin Powell-Arcand rounding out the cast.
Chambers is created by Leah Rachel and executive produced by Alfonso Gomez Rejon and Leah Rachel with producers Winnie Kemp, Wolfgang Hammer, Jennifer Yale, and Steve Gaghan.
In a statement from Netflix, Rachel spoke about the themes the show will unpack:
“Taking place in a mystic, New Age pocket of Arizona, Chambers is a psychological horror story that explores the different ways we metabolize trauma,” said Rachel. “But what starts out as a grounded human story eventually pivots into something far more strange and fucked up than you were expecting.”
We’re up for anything that takes a “fucked up” twist, so count us in. Will you be watching the series when it premieres?
