The Addams Family: The Movie
We've been watching episodes of The Addams Family TV show, and tonight we watched the movie based on the show. It really _is_ a scream. Considering that using the original cast was impractical, the casting was wonderful. An enjoyable homage that manages to be true to the original while adding freshness to the characters and themes. Raul Julia, who played Gomez Adams, died at the age of 54 only a few years after this film was released. The sequel was the next to the last movie he made. Anjelica Huston played Morticia Addams and is still very active.
