Netflix's CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA will Have an EXORCIST-Inspired Episode
The more that I hear about and see from Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the more excited I get about watching it. We've got some new information to share with you today that fans of the classic horror film The Exorcist might be interested in knowing.
It has been previously explained that the series "traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft" and "finds Sabrina 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."
The series is said to pick up on the verge of Sabrina's 16th birthday and with that comes an important decision. "Will she give up her human friends — and her adorable boyfriend, Harvey — to live life as a witch? Or will she turn her back on her powers in favor of the freedom that comes with humanity? Or can she somehow have it all?"
Well, it turns out that somewhere along the way in her life journey, someone is going to get possessed. While talking about the format of the series, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says, "Sabrina is the heroine in this series of mini-movies." He then goes on to say that one of those mini-movies will be inspired by The Exorcist:
"I love The Exorcist. It’s one of my favorite movies. We’re doing an homage to that; we’re doing an episode that’s like [The Exorcist]."
Well, I can't wait to see what that episode entails! It would be pretty cool if they actually took it to the dark horrific levels that we saw in The Exorcist! Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based on the comic of the same name and stars Kiernan Shipka in the role of Sabrina, along with Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, and more. It premieres October 26 on Netflix.
