The Addams Family (1991)
General Comments, I know awful title
I must have seen this film plenty of times, and it never bores me. Also for extra creepiness the tracking has gone on my copy(video)so the music is slightly out of tune, but disturbingly this appears to enhance it. I was unaware of the inspiration for creating the TV show then later the film, but that hasn't detracted from my enjoyment.
Since I wrote this in 2003 the tracking on my copy has fixed itself and there is no squeaking. In a way I kind of miss it as the music doesn't sound the same without it in the beginning. This I think is the most prominent feature of it and sets mood and tone for the Addams' point of view and for everyone else.
Raul Julia, Angelica Huston, Christina Ricci and Christopher Lloyd are excellent and Cousin It is just fabulous (wonder what shampoo he uses?) If you want something a little weird with some very black comedy one evening then if you haven't already I suggest you give it a whirl.
