October can’t get here soon enough for a variety of reasons, but especially because of the premiere of the Netflix series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. After her amazing performance in The Blackcoat’s Daughter, we’re anxious to see what Kiernan Shipka brings to the role of Sabrina, besides amazing fashion sense.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
We’re not in Riverdale anymore, kids.
