The Chamber poster for FrightFest horror is running out of air

First poster for underwater horror The Chamber should hold its breath

Here’s the first poster for writer-director Ben Parker’s debut feature The Chamber, which will make its debut on the Horror Channel FrightFest main screen on 26 August.

“The impressive feature debut from rising British star Ben Parker, director of the acclaimed short Shifter. A special ops unit commandeer a commercial research vessel and it’s submersible, The Aurora, under the command of Captain Mats (Force Majeure star Johannes Kuhnke) to locate a mysterious item at the bottom of the Yellow Sea off the dangerous shores of the Korean Peninusla. When an explosion causes the sub to overturn and take on water, the four-man crew enter a pressure cooker situation. And when the stark horror dawns that not all of them will escape, a desperate fight for survival ensues.”

In addition to Kuhnke, The Chamber also stars Charlotte Salt (The Musketeers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Elliot Levey (The Lady In The Van), and it’s produced by Jen Handorf and Paul Higgins. It’s also just been acquired for UK distribution by Studiocanal, which is promising stuff.
