Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2: Archive-Verse Easter Eggs and Reference Guide

Chris Cummins Apr 5, 2019

We take a look at all of the Archie and pop culture Easter Eggs from Sabrina Season 2!

This Chilling Adventures of Sabrina article contains nothing but spoilers. We have a spoiler-free review right here if you prefer.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is back, and we didn't realize exactly how much we missed it. This new batch of episodes takes our characters -- led by Kiernan Shipka's titular teenage witch -- down a darker path than ever before. (Which is super fitting seeing how Satan is a supporting player in the series).

Just as is the case with its sort-of companion series Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a series that rewards paying close attention with pop culture and Archie references a plenty. Here then is an overview of what allusions, reference, Easter eggs, and other noteworthy notables we noticed while devouring the season.

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘The Best Years of Our Lives,’ ‘Rio Bravo,’ ‘Zabriskie Point’ & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of the Moving Image

William Wyler’s The Best Years of Our Lives plays this Sunday with a conversation to follow.

Wings of Desire screens again on Sunday.

La meilleur cochon, Miss Piggy, gets her highlight reel on Saturday.

Hopefully with a shower close at hand, the Harmony Korine retrospective commences.

The B to Z of Movies: How B Movies Ruled the Cinema

In this short series of features, Tom Jolliffe will look at the humble B Movie and everything below. From the golden period of B cinema, to the rise in popularity of the B picture, to the underground mavericks making films on a shoe string from the 50’s right up to the present.

To begin with, lets look at the B movie. The terminology over the years has kind of evolved into a variety of interpretations. Everything from people using it as a derogatory term, to the actual qualifications of the B movie. Some pass it off as low budget. To an extent that was largely true in the distant history of Hollywood. The term initially spawned to represent the ‘other’ film of a double bill. Usually the low budget, low rent film (or the one with the B level star). More classically it also points to your premise or genre.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us': Lupita Nyong’o Is Bloodied, Beaten and Fierce in First Look (Photos)

  • The Wrap
Lupita Nyong’o has seen better days in the first look images shared by Entertainment Weekly for “Us,” Jordan Peele’s new horror movie arriving early next year. She’s bloodied, beaten down and with what looks like handcuffs around her hand, while wielding a bar as a weapon in an underground corridor.

And is that a “Handmaid’s Tale” vibe we’re getting from another image in which Nyong’o and her co-star Winston Duke (“Black Panther”) are standing together in the night in matching red jump suits?

It’s a fitting comparison, because Nyong’o co-stars with Elisabeth Moss in the film that Peele tells EW is a “monster mythology.”

Exclusive Interview – Await Further Instructions director Johnny Kevorkian on his biggest horror influences

Flickering Myth chats with Await Further Instructions director Johnny Kevorkian about his biggest horror influences…

From acclaimed director Johnny Kevorkian (The Disappeared) and BAFTA-nominated producer Jack Tarling (God’s Own Country), British sci-fi horror Await Further Instructions has been a hit at film festivals around the world and highly praised as an original and inventive festive frightener.

It’s Christmas Day and the dysfunctional Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly – an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, a nuclear war? All their limited information now comes from the television. But as the ominous gogglebox exerts an ever more sinister grip on their psyches, their terrified paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.

To celebrate the UK release on digital platforms, also arriving soon on Blu-ray and DVD, we hear from director Johnny Kevorkian on some of his biggest screen influences…

5 Horror Sequels With Surprisingly Famous Stars

Good news for fans of pint-sized horror – The Boy is getting a sequel. And surprisingly it stars Katie Holmes.

With all due respect to original lead Lauren Cohan, this is heavyweight casting. Cohan gave a strong performance and is world famous through The Walking Dead. But you’d kinda expect things to be the other way around for The Boy 2, right?

There must be something that drew Holmes to the follow-up – guess we’ll find out when it lands. In the meantime here are some other cases of big names who raised eyebrows appearing down the list of a fearsome franchise…

5. Michael Caine – Jaws The Revenge (1987)

Let’s start with one of the most famous pieces of casting in horror history. The great Roy Scheider starred in the first two Jaws movies (reluctantly in the case of the 2nd).

But for some reason, the franchise’s biggest name appeared in Part 4… Michael Caine!

Dakota Johnson Brought Her Famous Grandma, Tippi Hedren, to the Suspiria Premiere
Dakota Johnson had a very special date as she attended the La premiere of Suspiria on Wednesday: her famous grandmother, Tippi Hedren. The two looked cute as can be as they smiled for photographers and held hands on the red carpet. While the Fifty Shades Freed actress is getting ready to give us nightmares as Susie in the upcoming remake of the 1977 film, her grandma is a horror film legend. The 88-year-old actress, who is Melanie Griffith's mother, is best known for starring in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds in 1963. Looks like Dakota is following in her grandmother's footsteps. See more photos of their sweet outing ahead.

Oscar Flashback: ‘Psycho, ‘The Exorcist’ among the nominated horror films of the 1960s and 1970s

Oscar Flashback: ‘Psycho, ‘The Exorcist’ among the nominated horror films of the 1960s and 1970s
This article marks Part 2 of the Gold Derby series reflecting on Horror Films at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the spine-tingling movies that earned Academy Awards nominations, including the following films from the 1960s and 1970s.

Alfred Hitchcock‘s “Psycho” (1960) was met with enormous critical and commercial success upon release emerging the second-highest grossing film of the year, just behind Stanley Kubrick‘s “Spartacus.” Alas, the film was also greeted to a somewhat cool reception at the Oscars. “Psycho” did muster four nominations, in Best Director (Hitchcock’s fifth and final career bid), Best Supporting Actress (Janet Leigh), Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography. Notably absent was Anthony Perkins, unforgettable as Norman Bates. Leigh, who won the Golden Globe for her performance, was ultimately defeated by Shirley Jones (“Elmer Gantry”). The film also failed to win on any of its other three nominations.

Lauren Conrad's 2018 Halloween Costume Is For the Birds . . . Literally

Lauren Conrad's 2018 Halloween Costume Is For the Birds . . . Literally
Lauren Conrad is without a doubt one of the queens of Halloween costumes, and this year, her crown takes the form of crows. On Thursday, the author and designer revealed her costume for this year, and it's a throwback to Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 film The Birds. Donning bird hair ornaments and faint red streaks, Lauren is channeling the protagonist of the movie, Melanie Daniels, and the scene in which Melanie is brutally overcome by a horde of bloodthirsty birds.

Lauren describes the costume on her website, writing, " As seen on the movie poster, my costume depicts the famous bird attack that leaves Ms. Daniels terrified and full of bird scratches." She also dressed her 1-year-old son Liam in an adorable bird costume to complete the homage. If you want to re-create this gorgeously gory look, you can follow Lauren's Diy instructions on her blog.

The Most Popular Horror Films in America: New Study Reveals Each State’s Most Talked-About Title

The Most Popular Horror Films in America: New Study Reveals Each State’s Most Talked-About Title
With Halloween just around the corner, Streaming Observer decided to figure out the film most commonly considered people’s favorite horror movie in each of the 50 states. The results prove America has some great taste when it comes to the horror genre, with classics like “The Shining” and “The Exorcist” being named alongside some pretty surprising additions like Ana Lily Amirpour’s excellent “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” and Ti West’s throwback horror “The House of the Devil.”

Streaming Observer first culled a list of the most popular horror movies of all time using critical reviews from Rotten Tomatoes and data provided by Amazon MTurk surveying and other public sources (which might help explain why films like “This Is the End” have been categorized as horror). When the list was finalized, the company partnered with Mindnet Analytics and studied streaming trends using Google Trends to determine which

When it comes to great genre movies, there are just names you will always trust. Names like Romero, Craven, Cronenberg, Carpenter, Hitchcock, Dante, and many, many more, of course. So, with that in mind, I decided to round up 31 different films helmed by some of our Masters of Horror that are currently streaming across an array of digital platforms, including a few not-as-obvious choices that have thrilled audiences in a variety of mediums (such as William Peter Blatty and Jennifer Lynch).

Also, if you think I may have missed something that is currently streaming, do not fret—that film has most likely popped up in one of my other From Streams to Screams column, or it will later on this month.

Shudder Has More Horror Than Anyone Else

The horror streaming service Shudder ” is bringing Halloween to an unprecedented level this year with a killer lineup of seven original and exclusive films that starts with the breakout movie Revenge and culminates with the shocking slasher Summer Of 84,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “We’re also premiering the hit U.K. series True Horror, launching season 3 of Channel Zero and bringing back amazing classics like John Carpenter’s Halloween and a massive Hitchcock collection.”

Film Review: ‘The House With a Clock in Its Walls’ is Movie Magic

Chicago – “The House With The Clock In Its Walls” is a surprisingly restrained and endearing haunted house pic for kids just getting rid of their training wheels. It’s all a spooky atmosphere with cobwebs galore, creaking doors, a stained glass window which changes on its own, and a library of books which at times resemble the avifauna predators from the Hitchcock classic “The Birds.”

Young orphan Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) is sent to live with his eccentric kimono wearing uncle Jonathan (Jack Black) in small town Michigan after his parents are killed in a car crash. He soon discovers that his uncle is a warlock, albeit a mediocre one. But his next door neighbor, Mrs. Zimmerman (Cate Blanchett), is a much more powerful purple clad witch. Together, they trade insults like Ralph and Alice on”The Honeymooners,” but with knowing glances as they maintain a solid but platonic friendship. Jack

It Came From The Tube: Killer Bees (1974)

  • DailyDead
Sure, bees can be scary under the right circumstances; say, you’re allergic for instance, or you accidentally knock over a hive, or someone fills your mattress with them. But do you know what’s even scarier? Family. This brings us to Killer Bees (1974), an interesting yet generically titled TV movie that has more to do with the ties that bind than the stings that kill.

Originally broadcast on Tuesday, February 26th as an ABC Tuesday Movie of the Week, Killer Bees had killer competition with CBS’ smash lineup of M*A*S*H/Hawaii Five-o and NBC had their World Premiere Movie. Any guesses as to who won that night? No matter, because ABC had a secret weapon in Kate Jackson, my favorite Angel and first boyhood crush; she is more than enough reason for a recommendation from moi.

Jason Goes To Hell Director Shares More Insight Into The Evil Dead Connection

Jason Goes To Hell, the ninth installment in the iconic Friday the 13th movie series, shares some DNA with the Evil Dead franchise.

Mr. Voorhees isn’t opposed to a film crossover, given he’s previously shared the screen with Freddy Krueger of A Nightmare on Elm Street. But the connective tissue between Jason Goes to Hell and those Deadites is much more subtle in nature, as it involves a reference to the famous Necronomicon.

Adam Marcus, director of Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, has previously elaborated on his choice to make Voorhees a Deadite, but thanks to a new interview with Syfy Wire (h/t ComicBook.com), the creator dives that little bit deeper into what it was like bringing two horror franchises together, despite the fact that they hail from two different studios.

If I just take that prop and put [the Necronomicon] in the Voorhees house, and
