The Addams Family (2019)
12 October 2019 | by rockman182See all my reviews

I'm participating in the 31 Days of Horror movies tradition myself and am always sure to check out any horror film that comes to the cinema during the month. I enjoyed the original Addams Family films enough, though I've never watched the series. It was odd to me at first that an animated version of the franchise was being made but didn't feel deterred checking it out with a very good voice cast to boot. I know that many weren't crazy about the film and I'm kind of in the middle myself. Its a serviceable entry.

The film is about the classic cooky and spook Addams Family. Their house in New Jersey is in a town where a reality host is trying to grow her business in the territory and then eventually heads with the family as she tries to expose and get rid of these "monsters". The family also deal with regular family things, such as their children going through identity changes and interacting with the real world.

There were a few moments in the film that got a good chuckle out of me. I think the voice acting and animation were both perfectly fine. The problem was mainly with the script. Maybe going the route of having the family face off against the local TV personality wasn't the best course of action. Its obvious that this was going to be a way safer adaptation as it is animated and really meant for children as well but I felt like the writing of jokes and dialogue could have been sharper and wittier.

There isn't much at all to remember about this film. Its a decent time at the theater, although you may find more enjoyment if you are a fan of the series. For a casual fan like me, it does its job as an animated feature nothing more and nothing less. Its still a rather fun month of binging favorite horror films so it was different venturing to a more child friendly and animated horror themed movie.

6.5/10
