The Chamber

By FHW Roald Dahl Admin




"Director Ben Parker crams plenty of drama into a small space and clipped running time." - Screen Daily


THE CHAMBER stars Swedish actor Johannes Bah Kuhnke in his first film role since his international breakthrough performance in family drama Force Majeure and is written and directed by Ben Parker, his feature debut, having previously made the short Shifter, which played at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.

THE CHAMBER revolves around a special ops unit, who commandeer a commercial research vessel and it’s submersible to locate a mysterious item at the bottom of the Yellow Sea. When an explosion causes the sub to overturn and take on water, the crew begins to understand that not all of them will escape and a fight for survival ensues.
