Kids say (3 ):

The "possessed organ transplant" subgenre of horror isn't a new one; from Body Parts to The Eye, it's well-trod ground, and this series doesn't offer much in the way of surprises. It's a shame, since the contrast here between the haves (the LeFevre family in Crystal Valley, with their daily yoga sessions and private schools that boast a "nap room" students can go to when they feel "triggered") and the have-nots (public-school attending "bad student" and aspiring nail salon owner Sasha, raised in dingy Cottonwood by her Uncle Frank, who scrapes by running a pet store) should have lent itself to some interesting explorations regarding privilege, family bonds, and grief. Instead, Chambers mainly offers a gloomy tone punctuated by occasional gory freakouts, and way too slow a pace. This story easily could have been condensed to five or six episodes instead of 10 and would have been much the better for it. The show does serve up some pleasing cinematography -- it was filmed in New Mexico, which features refreshingly different scenic vistas than your typical horror series -- but between the spotty writing and the sluggish pace, it mainly feels bloated and blah.
