Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events

Rated TBC by the BBFC


The Baudelaire orphans have to fight off the grasping clutches of evil Count Olaf in Brad Silberman's scintillatingly sinister adaptation of the children's bestseller. Jim Carrey stars in multiple roles in an inspired fantasy that conjures up real fear and not the mild peril of similar kids' fare. Classy and beautifully acted, one can only wonder why it didn't spawn a series of sequels.
