Critic Reviews for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 1

All Critics (103) | Top Critics (27)

Chilling Adventures ends up being a surprisingly complex interrogation of power, aware both of the necessity of women claiming it and of the consequences that usually follow when that power is used for revenge.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Is it too much to expect that a show about the difficulty of deciding between the light and the dark would, I dunno, literalize that conflict with a swoony bad influence?

If you're wondering about talking cats or one in particular (Salem), Sabrina's cat does not talk in this series, but it's got a much cooler bag of tricks instead.

The longevity of Sabrina's adventures has yet to be determined, but with Shipka and the gang signed on for the full ride, I'd gladly follow this witch to the moon and back.

You're gonna be on Sabrina's side. Shipka is great here: The startling promise she showed on Mad Men has matured into bona fide acting chops.

The cast is a big perk - Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto, in particular.

Top Critic

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina does enough to prove that reboots - in the right hands - can pay service to the original while paving their own way.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

The new Netflix series takes Sabrina back her dark roots, and it's a campy and engaging return.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Chilling Adventures is to Sabrina, the Teenage Witch what The Dark Knight is to Adam West's Batman series.

If you're looking for a bewitching and bewildering good time, then sign the Book of the Beast and check out the second season of Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Apr 13, 2019 | Full Review…

...In spite of all this, for much of the series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina manages a light touch. The show does not lose sight of the fact that it is ultimately intended as a piece of pop culture.

Apr 8, 2019 | Full Review…

An intelligent mix of juvenile angst and horror. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 1

  • Jul 30, 2020
    It was an interesting concept and the first season was a fun way to pass the time, but had several inconsistencies in the plot.
  • Jul 22, 2020
    I thoroughly enjoyed this show. The adaptations and new characters were well done and the plot lines made for a very intriguing story that I couldn't wait to see the next part. This show has potential to be one of my all time favorites.
  • Jul 14, 2020
    Best drama, best character development, best storyline, absolutely a must watch show
  • Jul 10, 2020
    Exceeded my expectations! I didn't want to stop watching and I have rewatched the season and it's still just as fun.

    The first season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a very new and very intriguing take on one of our favorite comic book witches. Although it takes a while to get fully into the show, due to the lack of pacing, after the second episode you will want to binge it. The show has a very dark and disturbing undertone and outer tone to it that makes it something new and fresh. Kiernan Shipka's performance as Sabrina is superb and far more superior than any other actress who has taken on this role before. The series shows a deeper understanding of witches and their reasons and ways. The show was very well written, very well cast, and was performed spectacularly. I would give the first season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina an approval rating of 96%.

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a lot of fun. Pulp-style horror with its roots in the Archie Comic universe, it doesn't take itself seriously, playing it fast and loose with its endearing combination of Satanism, magic, and teen drama. It has a distinctive Halloween-y aesthetic with vintage-looking sets and costumes, which create its trademark witchy atmosphere. The cast is anchored by great adult actors including Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Michelle Gomez, and Richard Coyle. Gomez particularly is a scene stealer. Kiernan Shipka is solid as Sabrina, and the actors playing her fellow teen witches are also good, though her mortal friends are a bit bland. The place the show really falters is the writing. The writers pay lip service to social issues by having the characters talk about them, but fail to bake them into the plot, resulting in Sabrina decrying prejudice in one scene while pulling a prank encouraging us to laugh at the same prejudice the next. They also suddenly drop plot lines, and inconsistently develop how magic works in this world. A type of magic described as dangerous and difficult one episode is suddenly used with abandon the next. Yet the rest of the show is so much fun, it's easy to let the flaws go.

    As a teenager, Sabrina confronts her heroic adventures with her half-witched life. Throughout the story you will experience a lot of laughter, love, and a lot of frightening experiences.Sabrina was able to take on a fearless adventure that wasn't lazy

    If you want a dark, mystery, magic show this is absolutely ideal for you. Don´t hesitate
  • Apr 01, 2020
    I'm glad I gave this a chance because I hated Riverdale! It was really fun to watch.
  • Mar 20, 2020
    I hate to admit I actually really liked this show. Kiernan Shipka has made quite the actress. Had alot of fun watching this thing and I usually hate teen crap.
