Critic Reviews for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 1

All Critics (101) | Top Critics (25)

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.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may traffic in ghouls and devil-worshippers but it doesn't take itself too seriously with a campy, morbid sense of humour. It's what keeps it light enough to have fun with.

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.

Kiernan Shipka... is a perfect Sabrina, both canny and uncanny, simultaneously wise beyond her years and touchingly innocent.

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.

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

...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.

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

    Sabrina the Teen Age Witch has come a long way... Like 'Good Omens', don't go spreading this round to your more Christian friends. It's a good dark take on Sabrina, but i am a little over the cannibalism and 'Praise Satan' stuff. Give me more Salem.

    BEST TV SERIES ON NETFLIX SO FAR
  • Apr 14, 2019
    This show portrays witches and witch craft extremely in accurate. #1 Witches don't praise Satan #2 Witches were around before warlocks #3 Males do not take hierarchy in witch craft Sorry! Not Sorry!

    I really, really wanted to like this. Sabrina with a darker tone. Count me in. Unfortunately, i wish i had just watched a bad Supernatural rerun. This show is horrendously bad, i thought the dialogue was spotty from the start, but it just got worse and worse! Its completely unnatural, and also is increasingly preachy. Characters are stereotypical, most protagonist could have been card board and it would have been more compellingly. And the straw man bullies lacked any depth. Much of the dialogue was so on the nose its like the writers had to hold the watchers hand constantly. You dont have to tell me the raven is the obvious evil witch ladys familiar, cause im not a 4yr with no concept of story telling! You dont have to think while watching cause the show doesn't trust to, and just tells you outright. Show dont tell your hacks! Honestly, some of the darker scenes seems great, i loved so many of the more witchy moments! They felt like the kinda reactions people that grew up around magic really would. And the darker themes were fantastic. If only the writers knew how to white the other 90% as good as the scary 10%!

    The show turned from a very interesting story about a young witch growing up and having to face challenges from choosing a normal human mortal life or a dark arts witch life, but it drastically changes into a platform to bring up problems with gender roles, specifically Sabrina is upset that the "top *boy*" was a male and only applied because she disagrees that it can only be a boy, further more one of her friends (which is a girl) enrols into the boys basketball team only to be turned down (as she is a girl) which causes great uproar between the storyline. The show started as extremely captivating and slowly descended into a political story
