They're Creepy and They're Kooky



"The Addams Family" is the next incarnation of cartoonist Charles Addams 'family of creeps' as a 3D CG animated comedy feature, directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan ("Sausage Party"), starring the voices of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloƫ Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll and Allison Janney, opening October 11, 2019:


"The Addams Family" are a satirical inversion of the ideal 20th-century North American family...


...as an odd, wealthy aristocratic clan who delight in the macabre, seemingly unaware that other people find them bizarre or frightening. 


They first appeared as an unrelated group of 150 single-panel cartoons, originally published in "The New Yorker" magazine and since adapted to other media. 


The family has had a profound influence on American comics, cinema and television...


...and has been seen as an inspiration for 'goth' subculture, fashion and attitude.
