New CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA Featurette Focuses on The World of Witches
Netflix has released a new featurette for their upcoming horror series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I really hope that this show ends up being as good as it looks. I’m excited about this show! I love the dark horror setting and the fact that is heavily deals with the supernatural.
This new featurette puts a focus on the world of witches that the story revolves around. Specifically the half witch and half mortal character Sabrina Spellman and the heroic journey in the story. Check it out!
It's been explained that the series "traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft" and has been described as being in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. You’ll see elements of those things in this new trailer. The series "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 story picks 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?"
The show 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.
The show comes from Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and it’s set to premiere on Netflix on October 26th with 10 episodes. Watch the trailer below!
