Netflix Is About To Release Creepy New Horror Series Chambers

Netflix is going through a bit of a purple patch of creepy thrillers, with the likes of You, Birdbox, and The Haunting of Hill House leaving audiences scared of their own shadow.

But the streaming service has added yet another to its terrifying roster, with Chambers the latest cause of sleepless nights.

The eerie series is released tomorrow - 26 April - and focuses on high school student, Sasha (Sivan Alyra Rose) who, while recovering from heart surgery, starts having strange visions linking her to the girl whose heart she now has inside her.

Its synopsis says: "Sasha is a young teen whose heart stops and she immediately gets a new donor heart. After her heart transplant, she doesn't feel the same. Haunted by eerie visions and sinister impulses, she tries to unmask the truth behind her donor's mysterious death."

In the trailer, Sasha says: "I just want it to go back to the way it was before. It's just so weird that someone had to die for me to live."

Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn play the parents of the dead girl whose heart was used to save Sasha's life.

The grieving couple welcomes Sasha into their lives, but over the course of the series, the teenager's mental state begins to unravel as she becomes more closely connected to the dead girl.

She sets off on a mission to find out more about the circumstances surrounding her mystery donor's death.

The show's creator, Rachel Leah, said: "At the heart of it all, just to be really cheesy, it's a story about identity, and female identity, and adolescent female identity - which is a psychological horror in itself.

"Even though this story obviously has such huge stakes and goes into the supernatural and horror realms, it's a story about a girl fighting to retain her identity in a world that's trying to tell her who she is."

Leah said it is an ambitious project and she wanted to 'to tell a story about identity and also being a teenager', while 'exploring lots of different spiritual beliefs'.

She added: "I wanted to do something insanely cinematic and epic."

So far, the early reviews have been a bit of a mixed bag.

Los Angeles Times said: "Netflix's haunted horror show Chambers may be Uma Thurman's Stranger Things."

However, The Sydney Morning Herald wrote: "When organ donation goes wrong: creepy new show Chambers worth a watch."

Chambers will be available to watch on Netflix from Friday, 26 April.
