First Look: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina looks dark & evil

As we all know by this point in time, Netflix has teamed with RIVERDALE creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to craft a dark, horrific take on SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH called CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA. And today we have your first look at the new series via two images. You can check one of them out above and the other below. After that, let us know what you think!

Personally, I'm digging the tone of this series and plan to give both this new series and the corresponding RIVERDALE reboot their days in court as soon as I can. I'm into Archie Comics' new spin towards horror and I can only hope all the talk of the new angle being genuinely solid horror are not unfounded. We'll see!

Kiernan Shipka (THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER) stars as a Sabrina who is 

wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal, while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit. 

Sabrina Spellman is described as an empowered young woman — half-human, half-witch — who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.

Also in the cast are Miranda Otto as Sabrina's disciplinarian aunt Zelda; Lucy Davis as her nurturing aunt Hilda; Ross Lynch as her love interest Harvey Kinkle; Jaz Sinclair as her best friend Rosalind Walker; Chance Perdomo as her warlock cousin Ambrose; Michelle Gomez as Sabrina's teacher Mary Wardell, who becomes possessed by the devil's handmaiden Madam Satan; Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts, a man with a "terrifying dark agenda"; Bronson Pinchot as Baxter High's villainous puritanical principal George Hawthorne; and Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, leader of a trio of witches called the Weird Sisters and a character who has a possibly life-threatening grudge against Sabrina.

This new Sabrina series is said to be tonally in the vein of ROSEMARY'S BABY and THE EXORCIST. The ten-episode first season (Netflix has already ordered a ten-episode second season) hits the streaming giant on October 26th.
