Movie Info

The Chamber is a claustrophobic survival thriller set beneath the Yellow Sea where the pilot of a small submersible craft and a three-man Special Ops team become trapped underwater in a fight for survival. Stars Johannes Kuhnke (Force Majeure) and Charlotte Salt (The Musketeers) as the pilot and leader of the crew who must fight for their lives and against each other as the water rises and air supply runs out. Includes a haunting, atmospheric score by James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers (in his first work for film), which adds to the claustrophobic tension of this taut survival thriller.


Critic Reviews for The Chamber

All Critics (6)

A wonder of low-budget suspense, this is a horror movie with no monsters, only people in an impossible situation. Intense, claustrophobic, totally gripping.

There's little commitment to any particular tone - it never leans too far into idle B-movie pleasures, nor is the material elevated with nuanced character work.

The feature debut of director Ben Parker is a busy if ultimately tedious existential thriller, though he does show a talent for keeping things visually interesting with this high-concept, tight-space tale.

The Chamber is an undeniably tense watch with a subversive, gut-punch ending. While not plumbing any real genre depths, it should prove a solid and lucrative calling card for its clearly talented debut director.

Aiming straight for mounting dread, Parker gets the job done aggressively. Chances of him resurfacing with bigger projects look solid.

while The Chamber is certainly a survival thriller, it is also a submerged romance of sorts. There are hints of an existentialist undercurrent here too...
