This isn’t a horror show, and the film that preceded it, in addition to the series of books that preceded that film, aren’t either. But Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is a dark invention with cruel little tales that constantly force youngsters into perilous situations, and these kiddies always find a way to get one over on the evil old count Olaf. And, well, that’s close enough to horror for us!
Below you’ll find the rundown on the series, and a look at the trailer. The series will premiere on Netflix on January 13th!
