Updated: Fake teaser for Lemony Snicket is filled with delightful horrors

Update: It looks as though this was too good to be true, and so it is! While initially mistaken to be a teaser for Netflix' upcoming Lemony Snicket series, this fan-made trailer is exactly that; a well-made fake. According to Variety, a Neflix representative stated this video was not released from Netflix and not anything official. While the series IS on its way, a premiere date has yet to be announced. You can check out the original video below for as long as it's up!

LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS seemed to have all the right ingredients, but alas, the 2004 movie just didn't gel with general audiences. It looks as though Netflix feels they can do the darkly comedic book series justice and with their track record so far, who's to argue? The story follows that of three orphans who are taken in by the dastardly Count Olaf, who hopes to get a hold of their inheritance. While the cast has yet to be announced for the upcoming series, it looks like a YouTube user by the name of Eleanora Poe (book fans should get that one) has put together a teaser of what fans would want to see. Something out of a Tim Burton film ensues!

Admittedly, the original film did nothing for me, but I also haven't read the books on which the film and this series are based. I know Snicket has its fan base so I'm looking forward to checking out the series when it hits next year with (somewhat) fresh eyes. The big question is who will take up the role of Count Olaf on which Jim Carrey seemed to slip into so well?

Series of Unfortunate Events will hit Netflix sometime in the near future.

Who would cast to play Count Olaf?
