Netflix continues to work on original productions! I had NO idea they were adapting Lemony Snicket’s books, ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events,’ as movies, but they are. Here’s the first teaser trailer, and, even as an adult, I find it pretty creepy ;).
It doesn’t look like Netflix spared viewers on the creepiness at all. I wouldn’t call it gory, necessarily, but definitely eerie. Your older kids should love it, especially if they read the books!
In case you need a bit of a refresher on the series: three orphaned children (Klaus, Violet, and Sunny) are put into the care of Mr. Poe, the executor of their deceased parents’ estate. Mr. Poe’s sister is Eleanora Poe, and the youtube account is in her name. That’s a fun twist :). Check out the teaser trailer. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer much in the way of concrete information, like the release date, but it suggests that Netflix definitely got the tone of the books down perfectly. I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to watch this version- LOL.
