If you’re a fan of the classic Addams Family TV show or the original comics, you may be wondering if the new animated movie is as spooky as its predecessors. The short answer is no, it’s not particularly scary. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching for fans of the franchise or families looking for a fun Halloween-themed movie.
The Addams Family movie is rated PG, which means it’s suitable for most audiences. While there are certainly some creepy elements to the story and visuals, such as a haunted house and a villainous plot to eradicate “monsters” like the Addamses, it’s all presented in a kid-friendly way. The humor is mostly silly and slapstick, with some clever wordplay and visual gags thrown in.
One thing that may disappoint fans of the original series or movies is that the animation style is quite different from what we’re used to seeing from this franchise. Instead of live-action actors in creepy makeup and costumes, we have computer-generated characters that are more cartoonish and exaggerated. While this can be jarring at first, it does allow for some creative visuals and action sequences that would be difficult to achieve with practical effects.
Overall, while The Addams Family movie may not be particularly scary or faithful to its source material in terms of aesthetics, it still has plenty of charm and humor to offer. If you’re looking for something spooky but not too intense for younger viewers, this could be a good choice.
