It’s a human instinct to reach out for answers every time something really bothers us and often a lot of filmmakers take this instinct for granted. Netflix’s new horror series ‘Chambers’ is a psychoanalytical mumbo jumbo that has the most unexpected twists and turns in every few minutes.

And by the time you’re done looking for answers to each of the mysteries thrown at you, the show is already over. That’s when the bone-chilling insanity of it hits you. Speaking of insanity, ‘Chambers‘ does go a little overboard when it comes to going cuckoo bananas with all the twists.

The show revolves around the life of a teenage girl named Sasha who nearly gets a heart attack while she tries to lose her virginity to her high school’s track star. What saves her life is a transplant from another teenage girl, Becky Lefevre, who had a very mysterious death and has a past that could be labeled as “extremely troubled” compared to others her age. Soon, Sasha realizes that the heart she has received is not a blessing but a curse. She starts developing some very terrifyingly different personality traits and also discovers that the world around her is not as perfect as it used to be. Just one single event changes everything she ever knew and her life will now never be the same.

10. Stranger Things (2016-)
Netflix has had some classic originals but most of them don’t even come close to ‘Stranger Things.’ Most shows either get weighed down by fillers or just stumble down with each episode. But that has not happened to this one yet. ‘Stranger Things’ just nails the horror-thriller genre and like most other similar ones, it does leave some questions unanswered after each episode. But when the credits start to roll, you’re satisfied with most of what you know. It brings a wave of nostalgia as it throws at you some classic 80s and 90s “feels” of movies like ‘The Goonies’, ‘E.T’ and even ‘Super 8’.
The plot of the series is pretty simple. It revolves around the dark mysteries that lurk in a small town after a young boy goes missing. While certain people from the town try to find this boy, others start to experience all kinds of strange things around them. ‘Stranger Things’ is every bit as amazing as everyone keeps saying it is, so watch it today if you haven’t yet.
