When discussing movies to see in theaters before Halloween, we mentioned the new Addams Family animated feature as one of the options. It’s the latest iteration of the intellectual property that I grew up with: The Addams Family TV show! What started as cartoons for The New Yorker magazine has turned into so much more for multiple generations to enjoy. It’s pretty cool when grandparents can sit with their young grandchildren at a movie that everyone understands. A movie where there is no need for someone to prep another person on who the characters are. The Addams Family fits that bill.
But let’s be honest and admit not everyone can make it TO the movie theater. It may be an issue with schedules, costs or distance. That’s where we rely on Blu-Ray and streaming options to fill in the gaps! As Halloween approaches, you can pick up a copy of the Addams Family 2-Movie Collection including The Addams Family and Addams Family Values and have a double feature that’s timely and timeless!
The Addams Family 2-Movie Collection on Blu-Ray consists of The Addams Family movie and Addams Family Values. Here’s a little glimpse on what they’re each about:
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
When long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after 25 years in the Bermuda Triangle, Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) plan a celebration to wake the dead. But Wednesday (Christina Ricci) barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester’s uncommonly “normal” behavior. Could this Fester be a fake, part of an evil scheme to raid the Addams fortune?
ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES
It’s love at first fright when Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) welcome a new addition to the Addams household — Pubert, their soft, cuddly, mustachioed baby boy. As Fester (Christopher Lloyd) falls hard for voluptuous nanny Debbie Jilinksy (Joan Cusack), Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) discover she’s a black-widow murderess who plans to add Fester to her collection of dead husbands. ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES is debuting on Blu-ray for the first time.
And if you’re having trouble picking out a Halloween costume, selecting one of the characters from the Addams family is as simple as Halloween makeup and black outfits along with either bright red lipstick and nail polish (Morticia), braided hair (Wednesday) or a bald head wig (Uncle Fester). If you really want to go out on a limb, use some stilts and become Lurch!
