Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina gets a creepy teaser

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I never would have thought I would be looking forward to a TV series based on the Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but the upcoming Netflix show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina caught my attention as soon as it was announced that this series would be a dark, horrific take on the material, tonally in the vein of ROSEMARY'S BABY and THE EXORCIST. Now a teaser has arrived online to guarantee I will be watching this show when it reaches the Netflix streaming service next month.

Created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka 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.

The ten episode first season of the show will be available for binge-watching on Netflix as of October 26th. A ten episode second season has already been given the greenlight.

Judging by this trailer, Chilling Adventures is actually going to live up to the "dark, horrific" hype. This looks like a proper horror show, atmospheric and packed with strange characters and creatures. I'm going to be watching this for sure.
