Chilling Adventures ends up being a surprisingly complex interrogation of power, aware both of the necessity of women claiming it and of the consequences that usually follow when that power is used for revenge.

If you're wondering about talking cats or one in particular (Salem), Sabrina's cat does not talk in this series, but it's got a much cooler bag of tricks instead.

Kiernan Shipka... is a perfect Sabrina, both canny and uncanny, simultaneously wise beyond her years and touchingly innocent.

Oct 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The longevity of Sabrina's adventures has yet to be determined, but with Shipka and the gang signed on for the full ride, I'd gladly follow this witch to the moon and back.

You're gonna be on Sabrina's side. Shipka is great here: The startling promise she showed on Mad Men has matured into bona fide acting chops.

Is it too much to expect that a show about the difficulty of deciding between the light and the dark would, I dunno, literalize that conflict with a swoony bad influence?

As part one, the show is amazing. For a horror fan. For a fan ofRiverdale. The show hits the mark on multiple fronts and was a perfect watch...

Chilling Adventures is to Sabrina, the Teenage Witch what The Dark Knight is to Adam West's Batman series.

If you're looking for a bewitching and bewildering good time, then sign the Book of the Beast and check out the second season of Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Apr 13, 2019 | Full Review…

...In spite of all this, for much of the series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina manages a light touch. The show does not lose sight of the fact that it is ultimately intended as a piece of pop culture.

Apr 8, 2019 | Full Review…

An intelligent mix of juvenile angst and horror. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The new Netflix series takes Sabrina back her dark roots, and it's a campy and engaging return.

Audience Reviews for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 1

    If you like the comics or just a hardcore Archie/Horror Fan this show has thrills and chills. The show has definitely some scary parts!
  • Nov 01, 2019
    Love the unique perspective on a classic story and the backward comedic aspects.
  • Oct 11, 2019
    This is a superb re-imagining of the classic character, based on a recent comic book by the same name, which itself was partially inspired by a short-lived series by a similar comic title in the 1970's. This series embraces the horror aspects, which were traditionally ignored by the Archie comics. The stories here are fun, with lots of great visuals and tons of Easter eggs for anyone who is interested in the occult.

    I loved the Sabrina, the Teenage Witch show as a teen and watched it for years! I love the new interpretation of the show. The old one was very much a sitcom, but this modern version is more of a drama, which is great for the spooky vibes. But what I appreciate most about this remake is the attention to detail in regards to witchcraft. This show not only makes the occult approachable, but does it in an educational-yet-fun way!

    Weirdly Good and so fun to watch!

    Disappointing. This could have been a brilliant, atmospheric serving of the occult, a genre sadly lacking in quality in recent years. Instead we're served up a teen drama that gets bogged down in try hard, stereotyping of "woke" characters, token diversity, subversive tropes that just make me roll my eyes, and a running, witless, heavy handed them of "white man bad!" It's not entertainment, it's trash propaganda made for Millenials and young the producers must think have very low standards. The occult and gorgeous locations could save it, but half the characters are utterly unbearable. Sabrina's Brit aunt is a jolly, fat stereotype, her conveniently wise and helpful Brit cousin talks like Tom Hiddleston trying to crap between his teeth, he has to have the most irritating voice on screen since Sarah Silverman, and he seems there to tick more woke boxes rather than actually provide drama and character. I just wanted to watch some damn, classic, New England witchcraft. I wanted a thrilling occult tale, I wanted the supernatural, I wanted to see that glorious American Gothic. I don't want lectures, I don't want by now standard Leftist racism towards white people, sexism towards men, cheap, insulting minority characters written to tick boxes, so why does Netflix do it?

    Love the first part. Salem could have a bigger role ;) Very good acting, fantastic set design. Intensive storyline. NICE!
  • Sep 12, 2019
    Absolutely intriguing and devilishly macabre. The charming small town and warm, autumn wardrobe pulls me into a "blanket and a warm cup of tea" comfort space, ready to sit down and binge this masterpiece. I can't get enough!
  • Sep 08, 2019
    I've made fun of this series a lot, but it's actually pretty good! One of the rare times Netflix does not intentionally try to disappoint its subscribers! Also, I didn't know this was a remake of Sabrina the Teenage Witch until it was too late. Made me feel like an uncultured trash rat.

    Propaganda is strong with this one
