When a dead body turns up, a local group of Satanists, The Black Circle, seem the most likely suspects. With the help of a friend, a criminal law student decides to conduct his own investigation by placing his neighbors under 24/7 video surveillance. But the deeper he digs and the closer he watches, the more suspicious and frightened he becomes...and with no one to trust, the killer may be closer than he thinks. Inspired by the true story of the Say You Love Satan killer.
... Co-starring Felissa Rose and Desiree Gould of the cult horror hit Sleepaway Camp, Dark Chamber is a suspenseful psychological thriller that will have you on the razor s edge of terror right through the final electrifying moments.
Campfield boldly takes a page from Rear Window; and modernizes it with, many times, brutally engrossing methods. Dark Chamber (reviewed as Under Surveillance); is such an exceptional and utterly involving murder mystery, and I was hooked.
Many of the surveillance scenes range from utterly fascinating to just plain hilarious, and we're introduced to the range of characters that are potential murderers and must connect the dots. Campfield gives some great direction with tight camera scenes and engrossing sequences where the characters come too close for comfort in discovering the culprits behind the murder.
Under Surveillance is an entertaining and engrossing murder mystery that really manages to blend tension and atmosphere and a surprise ending that pays off well. With good performances and direction, this is very much worth the watch. --Felix Vasquez Film Threat

(They investigate by installing video cameras into the walls, hence the alternate title: UNDER SURVEILLANCE.)
I'm being generous giving this film 3 stars. There's some decent acting (amid some poor acting), and the story held my interest.
But the photography, lighting, and sound looks like this was shot by hobbyists using a VHS camcorder. Probably not, but that's how it looks.
And while the story held my interest, the editing was choppy. The story jumped about incomplete vignettes, and felt like whole scenes were missing.
Contrary to one review, this is not a slasher film. No superhuman slasher (like Jason or Myers) stalking people. DARK CHAMBER tries more to be a suspense film -- it's marketed as Hitchcockian -- but that would be overly generous.
Probably the only reason this film is getting any attention is because of actresses Felissa Rose, Desiree Gould (both of SLEEPYAWAY CAMP) and Raine Brown. Rose has a significant supporting role, but Gould and Brown are barely in the film.
Raine Brown has only 1 or 2 minutes of screen time, playing a hooker (not the one who is killed).
Film also has bloopers. The father tells his son that the mother is threatening to go to court unless he sends the son back to the mother. HUH? The son is in college -- over 18! Parents don't have "custody" over kids once they turn 18. They become adults, and can live with whichever parent they like, or with no parent.Read more ›
Decent story, just horrific acting and about the worst cinematography and FX ever put on film (just watch the "gasoline fire" in the last act...).
Skip this one.
The transfer is pretty poor and you can't blame the source material given that this is a 2006 movie! Too low resolution is not helped by a non-anamorphic letter box presentation thus bringing the zoom into play which magnifies the poor transfer. No subtitles (understandable but still lacking). I have seen better transfers from bargain bin companies like Mill Stream and Echo Bridge.
Not a good first experience.
