There have been more than a half dozen TV and Movie iterations of Chas Addams’ The Addams Family – some amazing; others not so.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan for MGM – with a cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll with Bette Midler and Allison Janney – this new, animated take on the classic weirdly normal family looks to be pretty amazing.
The Addmas Family is coming to theaters on October 11th.
Inversion can be a good thing – as in this year’s Halloween celebration at Freeform, where the number of nights of spookiness and fun has switched from 13 to 31!

The fun begins on Monday, October 1st with ParaNorman. The complete 31 Nights of Halloween schedule follows below.
