'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale' trailer is spookier than all the demons we encountered in season 1
Thanks to 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale' we do not have to wait six months to get back to our coven
For mortals 'tis the season to be jolly and celebrate Christmas, but for witches it's the Winter Solstice, calling in for an equal celebration, if not more. Netflix's new cult-following show 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' which aired on Halloween is back with an entire new episode to herald the winter celebration while season 2 is still at work.
The first trailer for the 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale,' is out and while it sounds all Christmas-sy or rather Christmas-sassy, with tinkling bells and soft piano warming you up for a cozy winter binge preferably by the furnace, it soon turns into a frightful watch as dainty music turns into screams and ghosts appear dressed in all white while gory scenes flash by to make you shiver despite sitting close to the furnace.
The one-off episode comes with a tagline of 'Walking in a wicked wonderland,’ and after watching the trailer, there is no doubt as to why Greendale has turned into a "wicked wonderland". "It's time to light the Yule Log," Zelda (Miranda Otto) announces in the Spellman household. "Otherwise who knows what might come down our chimney." The scene directly transfers to Santa Claus, (looks like he manages to come down the chimney) and attempts to kidnap Sabrina.
The creepy old man is comparatively less scary than the ghost who comes later in the trailer as a vision in white that you would much rather look away from, or close your eyes with your hands instead of holding on to your hot cocoa.
Guaranteeing you enough chills and shivers to keep your calories in check, the trailer further shows the conjuring of a lady in white, a man melting in candle wax and a demon in the corner. The official synopsis of the show reads; "The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice—the longest night of the year—when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors—both welcome and unwelcome— you never know what might come down the chimney…"
Recently it was revealed that 12-year-old actress, McKenna Grace, will portray the role of young Sabrina, whose 16-year-old version is played by Kiernan Shipka. The trailer shows a glimpse of Sabrina's childhood as her father present a baby to what looks like Satan himself.
A statement from Netflix revealed a further plot around this: “During our holiday special, we’ll get to see what Sabrina was like as a precocious tot. And while The Church of Night celebrates the Solstice, that doesn’t stop Li’l Sabrina from asking Santa for something special.”
Season 2 is slated to release next summer, but thanks to 'Midwinter's Tale,' fans are in for a surprise treat. Judging by the supernatural horror featured in the trailer, we are sure the Winter Solstice with its prolonged darkness has all the dark magic we need to hail Satan all-over-again and make-believe Santa isn't the best Christmas offers.
Praise Satan! 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale' drops December 14 on Netflix.
