The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina return to Netflix on April 5, and after watching the first five episodes, Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa’s writing is bold and wonderful as Sabrina is a bull in the China Shop of social norms.

Kiernan Shipka in Part 2 commands your attention as the 19-year-old has found the balance between awkwardness and rising hero. Shipka is the Peter Parker/Spider-Man of witches.

Review - CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA: PART 2
CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA

The Netflix series is deeply layered as Sabrina, Harvey, Rosalind, and Suzy navigate the teenage universe and the world of witchcraft. There are significant developments with Suzy’s character in the first episodes but no spoilers here, yet the compassion for humanity the show demands is beautiful. The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is a smart show that talks directly to the issues of today, and then adds the horror of the dark lord to get under your skin and keep you on the edge of your seat. Part 2 elevates the social conversation and turns up the fire on the terror. The setting of witches and warlocks easily lends itself to treachery from any direction which keeps the tension running high through the first five episodes.

Chapter Fifteen: Doctor Cerberus’s House of Horror written by Ross Maxwell and directed Alex Garcia Lopez is an amazing change of pace episode that builds the scares with each short tale and sets up plot threads for the rest of the season. Late in the episode, Lopez goes back to the 70s to provide a grainy, smoke-filled, red terror that felt like a Mandy spin-off. The one-minute scene stands out as a special moment in the episode. Aquirre-Sacasa needs to let Lopez direct more episodes.

SIDEBARThe soundtrack in Part 2 adds a special flair to the episodes, as the 80s music connects the older fan to the series. Inclusiveness in all aspects of an episode is what makes the series unique.

Lucy Davis continues to steal the show as Sabrina’s Aunt Hilda as she’s the moral compass of the series. Davis is the warm hug that will cheer you up on the saddest of days.

Overall, Netflix delivers with Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: Part 2 as it provides thrills, chills, and heartwarming moments. You have full approval to binge away.
