EXCLUSIVE: New Lemony Snicket Book Trailer For 'The Dark'

Lemony Snicket wants you to be... well, if not afraid of the dark, at least aware of it. Because according to his forthcoming kids book, The Dark, out on April 2nd, it has something to say to a little boy called Laszlo who's afraid of it.

And so Mr Snicket has kindly shared his new book trailer with us, above. Watch, enjoy - just. don't. blink.

What do you think? Are you afraid of the dark? Or, perhaps more reasonably, of Lemony Snicket? Let us know in the comments!
