Netflix is making sure their Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series will be on everyone’s Halloween marathon list with a brand new, spellbinding trailer!
The trailer opens on a nighttime shot of Spellman Mortuary…A wolf howls somewhere in the distance as a rolling fog blankets the scene. Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) playfully chases Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) to the front door quoting Night of the Living Dead’s famous line, “They’re coming to get you, Barbara!” Sabrina responds in kind with, “Harvey Kinkle, the only person you’re gonna scare is yourself!”
Sabrina wishes Harvey goodnight, and heads inside. With a wave of her hand she magically flicks on the record player and lights to dance around like a giddy lovestruck teenager. But things aren’t all sunshine and rainbows.
From there, the atmospheric, darkly comedic trailer follows Sabrina as she’s torn between two worlds on her 16th birthday. Sabrina must choose between following the path of a witch, or a mortal.
Kiernan Shipka’s performance as Sabrina already looks mesmerizing. If you haven’t seen her other eerie role in Oz Perkins film The Blackcoat’s Daughter, I highly recommend adding it to your Halloween movie list (It’s currently available on Amazon Prime). The show also boasts a strong supporting cast, which includes the likes of Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto as Sabrina’s devilishly fun aunts Hilda and Zelda Spellman.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s blend of the macabre with punchy, dark humor looks like a show conceived with every bit of the Halloween season in mind. If you weren’t into the Melissa Joan Hart sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch, you definitely need to give the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina a try. Netflix’s take on the witchy tale is a huge departure from the lighthearted sitcom, and its moody Halloween atmosphere and cinematic look has potential to attract fans both old and new.
With the absence of Stranger Things this Halloween season, Netflix’s horror series’ Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Haunting of Hill House look like they will definitely be up for the task of filling that void.
Check out the spooky trailer below:
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will cast its spell on audiences when the first season hits Netflix on October 26th!
