Goes nowhere slowly.
A grim thriller that isn't as compelling as it might have been in stronger hands.
Another flaw is that the script borrows heavily... ok, let's be honest, practically cribs it's entire plot from James Cameron's 1989 film The Abyss...Overall, despite some good moments, The Chamber is a near miss.
[I]t becomes clear that Parker has become stymied by his self-imposed, if admirable, restrictions.
Though the ingredients are present for a suspenseful little sleeper, The Chamber will simply put you to sleep.
The Chamber is a conventional deep sea horror thriller that offers more than enough thrills in a wild ride.
Standard issue trapped-undersea thriller, more melodramatic than most.
Other than a sinking feeling, there's not much else The Chamber is going to give you.
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.
