The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Is Receiving Amazing Reviews

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Is Receiving Amazing Reviews

Netflix's latest series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, has been receiving rave reviews from critics and we can't wait for it to be released.

The series isn't available to stream on the platform until 26th October, but critics are already calling it 'this generations Buffy The Vampire Slayer'.

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina has been blessed with the same producers as Riverdale and it shouldn't be mistaken for the teen sit-com, as this reboot has been given a much darker spin on the story.

According to the online streaming giant, the reboot 'imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina The Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft'.

It will be 'tonally in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature - half-witch, half-mortal - while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit'.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been described by Forbes as 'a perfect streaming series for the October season'.

"It gets the horror. It gets the supernatural. It gets the precise lack of subtlety needed to pull off such a series. it gets it all. The show is a solid entry to the genre TV slate and one that could very well go down as the top Archie Comics adaptation to date in years to come."

Rather than being based on the sitcom we all know and love, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based on the Archie comic.

The series follows Sabrina, who is struggling to choose whether she should succumb to her sorcery and live life as a full witch, or pursue a mortal life with boyfriend Harvey.

Of course, it can't be too straight forward as while she takes her time to decide, the evil Madam Satan returns from Hell to seek revenge on the Spellman family.

Radio Times compares the series to Buffy The Vampire Slayer and we are definitely happy with that.

The publication wrote: "The exceedingly talented Kiernan Shipka has the on-screen presence to become a genuine icon as the righteous and principled half-witch Sabrina Spellman. On this evidence, she more than measures up to Sarah Michelle Gellar's a*s-kicking vampire hunter.

"Like Buffy, Sabrina is the odd one out among her friends, with a toe in the supernatural world, but a group of normies around her keeping her grounded.

"However, while Buffy was outed as a slayer early on, Sabrina is intent on keeping her secret guarded. You know, to avoid a witch hunt."

If the reviews and trailers are anything to go by, we definitely think Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be our Halloween Netflix binge.
