Prepare to be chilled to the core.

Upset there wasn’t a single familiar witch in last night American Horror Story: Apocalypse premiere? Luckily, Netflix decided to drop the very witch first trailer for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina — and, as it says on the tin, it is indeed quite chilling. This darker, twistier, more fantastical version of the Sabrina comics follows our titular teenager (the delightful Kiernan Shipka as she comes to terms with possessing the powers of witchcraft, and the trailer highlights the spectacular fashion in which she accepts her supernatural destiny. Think of this as less of Melissa Joan Hart’s beloved Sabrina sitcom from the the early aughts, and more of a modern Exorcist.

Set to a haunting “happy birthday” tune we’re introduced to a few characters who will undoubtedly prove to be important as Sabrina prepares for her full-time witch initiation. (She’s apparently going to renounce her mortal life for a “dark baptism” on her 16th birthday. Also: her aunts worship the devil. Prepare for the evangelical backlash.) We see some mortal high school pals, a mortal boyfriend, some definitely non-mortal high school pals, and potentially a devil’s handmaiden. It’s creepier than a Lana Del Rey fever dream, but Sabrina looks pretty happy with her decision to worship Satan, and that’s all that counts.

While Netflix has been keeping the show’s more specific plot points at bay — the trailer, upon a rewatch, makes you realize there isn’t even any dialogue — Kiernan recently discussed how fulfilling it was to have her name first on Sabrina‘s call-sheet, for the first time in her career. “I was like, Oh my God, this is heaven. I’m obsessed with everything about it,” she explained, before admitting she had trouble filming with her feline scene partner, because she soon realized she was allergic to cats. “The cat is the one cast member I don’t get along with,” she joked, while still leaving us in the dark as to whether or not this version of the cat talks as it did on the Hart version.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina debuts on Netflix on October 26.
