Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events at IMDB

A Series of Unfortunate Events is a collection of books written by Daniel Handler Lemony Snicket, and illustrated (with little regard for his personal safety) by Brett Helquist. The books chronicle the mournful lives of the Baudelaire children, following the tragic deaths of their parents. The children are placed under the guardianship of the villainous Count Olaf, who relentlessly hunts the Baudelaires from book to book in pursuit of the fortune entailed to them.

Apart from a hideous monobrow, Count Olaf's most distinguishing feature is the tattoo of an eye on his left ankle. The tattoo, related to a mysterious organisation known as VFD, is the only weakness in an array of terrible disguises which none of the adults can see through.

The tattoo assumes even greater significance as the series progresses.

The Movie

The first three books in A Series Of Unfortunate Events—"The Bad Beginning", "The Reptile Room", and "The Wide Window"—were made into a movie starring Jim Carrey in 2004.

Jim Carrey's make up in the film is intended to resemble Count Orlok, from the film 'Nosferatu,' the first known adaptation of the Dracula novel to film.
