This New Netflix Film Is Meant To Be Scarier Than The Handmaid's Tale

It looks equal parts amazing and terrifying.

If you've already finished binge-watching The Handmaid's Tale, then listen up. If not, then we recommend getting into that ASAP.

As of November 3rd, a new adaptation of another Margaret Atwood novel will be available for streaming, and it's already gearing up to be more disturbing than fan-favourite The Handmaid's Tale.

The film, Alias Grace, tells the story of a poor Irish immigrant living in Canada as she investigates her involvement in a murder. Filled with 1800's costumes, terrifying behaviour and mysterious storylines, the show is everything we would expect from Atwood and more.

According to Netflix's description, the series follows Grace Marks, "a poor, young Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who, along with stable hand James McDermott, was convicted of the brutal murders of their employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery, in 1843."

And let's be honest, judging by the trailer, it looks equal parts amazing and terrifying.

In fact, the 6-part mini series was shot in various locations across the GTA, including Kingston Penitentiary, King Street East and Black Creek Pioneer Village.

The show actually premiered on CBC on September 25th, but if you happened to miss it, Alias Grace is also scheduled to appear on Netflix on November 3rd.

Currently, the show has a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics. But you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about tomorrow.
