The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Review- Deranged, feminist and interesting

The Season 3 of Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina has the women take center stage. With Father Blackwood on the run, Lilith on the throne, and Zelda ruling over the Church of Night, its women raising hell on earth and we mean it quite literally. Season 3 finds Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) trying to free her boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood), from being eternally imprisoned by Satan himself. Sabrina gets the much-needed help from her mortal buddies: Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch), Rosalind Walker (Jaz Sinclair), and Theo Putnam (Lachlan Watson). While she's in the Satan's Lair, Sabrina will also attempt to wrest control of Hell's throne from royal hopeful Caliban (Sam Corlett). Part 3 proves that the series has perfected its blend of humour and horror, while offering a storyline with more urgency, despite lagging in several parts.

Part 3 goes deep into a variety of different mythologies to excite the audiences who return to the series for the more horrifying and fantastical elements. The narrative brings in Biblical stories, cosmic horrors, voodoo, Old Gods, Green Man, and much more. Arguably the best installment of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina so far.

The biggest appeal for Sabrina is its ability to manage the balance between supernatural horror and teenage melodrama. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa who is best known for his work on Glee and Riverdale, and he keeps the spirit of these shows alive while also injecting some truly dark stuff. An episode can feature court intrigue, scenes of sweet romance, child murder, and a frothy cheerleader routine, all in the same vein. It is the perfect mixture of good storytelling and building sensational character arcs.

We suggest you binge-watch this show, this very weekend.
