Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale Trailer is Equal Parts Cheery and Sinister

Are you sure you know exactly who is coming down your chimney this Christmas? If you live in Greendale, you might want to take some extra precautions. The Spellmans are preparing for a “bright solstice” this winter, but sinister forces may interrupt the celebrations. A new trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale reveals what the holiday season is like for witches.

We’ve been obsessed with the new Sabrina series since it dropped this fall and are totally in the mood for more. Seeing the town in a blanket of snow is just what we were hoping to find our stocking this season. It isn’t all peace and goodwill, however. Unusual things are happening in Sabrina’s life, even for a witch. There’s plenty of traditional cheer, but everything is a little bit…off.

Remember to keep your yule log lit or expect some unwanted visitors. Like a morbid and ghastly specter that seems to be haunting the Spellmans. Or perhaps a kidnapping Santa who will bag you up in his sack of toys. Of course, there is always a threat of a Krampus like creature who will ruin all of your holiday plans if you don’t take precautions.

The most disturbing tease is what appears to be a bloody and inanimate person being used as a candelabra. And the candles are lit! There’s also a super creepy doll that can blink its eyes. On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me eight butcher knives falling from the ceiling.

This looks like more of the wacky and detailed fun we’ve come to expect from the Riverdale family. If you thought Sabrina’s birthday was wild, just wait for the holidays. Keep in mind, this is just a mid-year special. We will see season 2, however, before another year passes. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale hits Netflix December 14 and season 2 will manifest April 5.
