We've Found Your Next Netflix Binge Watch And It Is Creepy AF

If you're ready to lose yourself in the world of celebrated murderesses then we've found the Netflix series for you.

Alias Grace tells the story of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a young servant who is accused of murdering her master Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross) and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin). 

If you like shows with strong female leads, shocking murders and creepy occurrences that can't be explained then you're going to be obsessed with Alias Grace

The series is based on the novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood, who also wrote The Handmaid's Tale. But while The Handmaid's Tale was a fictional take on what could happen in the near future, Alias Grace is based on two actual murders that took place in Canada in 1843. 

Both in real life and in the series, there are many questions about how involved Grace actually was in the crimes. In Alias Grace she looks back at her life leading up to the murders through a series of conversations with Dr Simon Jordan (Edward Holcroft), but it is unclear at times if she is telling him the truth or just saying what she thinks he wants to hear. 


The six-part series can easily be finished in just one day, which makes it the perfect weekend binge-watch. 

You'll immediately want to find out everything there is to know about the real Grace Marks upon finishing, but be warned - I've been reading up extensively since finishing the series and there is not much out there. 

Alias Grace is available to watch on Netflix now.
