Netflix just put in a 10-episode order for a new horror series that focuses on an important organ within the genre, the heart. After all, it's the thing that kicks into overdrive whenever we get scared.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is titled Chambers (referring to the four that make up a human heart) and revolves around a heart-transplant patient who wants to learn more about the donor who saved her life. This comes at a cost, however, as she begins to take on the qualities of the person the blood-pumping organ once belonged to.

It was created by Leah Rachel, who wrote and directed the 2015 short Boys I Used to Babysit. She also starred in the TV series Leverage on TNT and will executive-produce Chambers with Stephen Gaghan (Syriana, Traffic). Akela Cooper — a writer on Luke Cage, The 100, and American Horror Story — will be the showrunner as well as executive producer.

Chambers is yet another notch in Netflix's horror belt, which has been growing steadily over the last year or so with Gerald's Game, 1922, Hush, and The Babysitter. Then there's The Open House (out next week) and the darker take on Sabrina The Teenage Witch. It truly is a scary-good time for the streaming service.
