This Month’s Highlights

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

The Riverdale renaissance of Archie Comics continues with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which takes the teenaged witch that you know and shows that you really, really don’t. Based on the comic by Riverdale showrunners Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack, Sabrina’s big twist is that it takes all the occult stuff the old comic and series played for laughs and treats them very, very seriously for some damn good horror. If you love Riverdale, you need to check this out. Available October 26.


Gareth Evans is the director of two of the finest action films in recent memory, The Raid and The Raid 2. Apostle, his next film, looks nothing like either of them, and it couldn’t be more exciting. Apostle stars Dan Stevens as a man who visits a remote village to save his sister from the thrall of a cult — only to find himself in too deep. It’s a familiar setup but channeled through Evans’s brutal-yet-artful sensibilities, Apostle looks like a can’t-miss horror film. Available October 12.

Daredevil Season 3

Going solely off the marketing, it’s hard to get excited about Daredevil’s new season. It’s leaning hard on obvious Catholic symbolism, working overtime to remind you that it’s a dark and gritty show, and, well, we get it. But there are, in fact, a couple reasons to be excited about this new season, the biggest of which is the return of Wilson Fisk as The Kingpin, and the hopes that they might find a way to adapt Born Again, the most famous and beloved of Daredevil stories. Will they pull it off? Who knows, but I really want to find out. Available October 19
