Add this to your queues, fans of The Handmaid's Tale.

Fans of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale take note: Netflix is gearing up for its own Margaret Atwood adaptation and it looks, well, equal parts amazing and terrifying, honestly.

The streaming service just released the trailer for its six-hour Alias Grace miniseries and it might already be the best thriller of the year.

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."

Watch the trailer yourself below, but be warned—it's intense.
