BEN PARKER'S THE CHAMBER WORLD PREMIERES AT HORROR CHANNEL FRIGHTFEST 2016
Another day, another world premiere for Horror Channel Frightfest 2016. Writer & director Ben Parker's debut feature, The Chamber will be unleashed on the Frightfest audience on Friday 26th August. Hot on the heels of news of its premiere, we've also been informed that Studiocanal has picked up the film for UK distribution. This is a good sign, Studiocanal has been behind many UK-bred horrors and is generally a barometer for homegrown talent that offers something just a little out of the ordinary. Roll on August so we can see what they've got in store for us. Read on for the official info.
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 its 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.
The Chamber also stars Charlotte Salt (The Musketeers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Elliot Levey (The Lady In The Van). Producers are Jen Handorf and Paul Higgins. Executive producer is Hugh Spearing.
Production financing for the film comes from Fields Park Media Partners, Ffilm Cymru Wales and Great Point Media.
