Chambers: New Netflix show keeps things close to the heart


Netflix dropped a trailer for the new horror-thriller, Chambers. Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn, and Sivan Alyra Rose star. We’ve got the details!

Per a report from Deadline, Chambers will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix on Friday, April 26. The first official trailer has dropped. It shows an eerie rumination on the fragility of life, the risks that come with second chances, and how grief leads to uneasy joy.

One night, Sasha Yazzie (Sivan Alyra Rose) has a sudden, massive heart attack. She survives but needs a heart transplant. The heart she receives is from Becky Lefevre (Lilliya Scarlett Reid), a young woman who has suddenly died. After some time has passed, Sasha and her father Big Frankie (Marcus LaVoi) go to visit Becky’s parents. Nancy Lefevre is played by Uma Thurman (Kill Bill Vol.2) and Ben Lefevre is played by Tony Goldwyn (Scandal). That’s the simple set up for Chambers.

The happiest person in the trailer is Sasha’s dad for obvious reasons. His daughter is still alive. And when he tells Sasha that this heart attack could be the best thing that ever happened to her, we are left wondering just what kind of life Sasha was leading.

Ben seems happy to meet Sasha. Meanwhile, Nancy gives her a hug that sent chills up my spine. It’s hard to imagine your child dying, let alone having their heart cut out and put into someone else’s body. Not only does this happen to Nancy, but she has to meet the recipient of the heart. Yikes.

While this acceptance and grief seem to be a normal, sad part of moving on, there’s more to the Lefevres than meets the eye. Ben is seen chanting in front of a fire. Nancy seems to be in a quiet rage. Sasha starts to see and feel things that Becky felt. She even starts seeing the Lefevres appear in her photos. It’s as if Sasha’s life is being erased. Who was being saved here? Sasha or Becky?

I’m intrigued! The show was created by Leah Rachel (Boys I Used to Babysit). She will executive produce the show along with Alfonso Gomez Rejon (American Horror Story). I like moody, emotional horror stories. Those tend to get you more involved in the story that will stick with you long after you’ve watched. With the added supernatural element, Chambers looks to be a strong addition to Netflix’s horror catalog.

Does the premise of Chambers interest you? Will you be binging Chambers later this month? Let’s discuss in the comments!
