The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina pilot shows promise

For a slightly older than teen audience the slogan from the makers of Riverdale can send a cold shiver down the spine.

But fear not the opener of the revamped Chilling Adventures of Sabrina offers a solid if not spectacular opening.

This is very much a scene setter but we get to know our central base of characters too, with most including our witch in the making giving off good vibes.

We open just a few days before Sabrina’s sweet 16th where she will formally begin her families tradition to learn witchcraft, although she hasn’t shared this with her friends and boyfriend yet.

There’s the usual teen angst but this is coupled with a handful of creative kills that may have expected something tamer.

We also have enough exposition to see how the series will play out without giving too much away.

Also a chase scene in a Halloween corn maze with a demon scarecrow is an unexpected treat.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is streaming now on Netflix.
