The Trailer

The verdict by London Mums’ child reporter Maya Benedetti (13)

Every family is different, but one of them stands out the most: The Addams Family. 
The Addams Family is the latest Universal Pictures production. It’s a cartoon remake of an old TV Series that was made in the ’60’s and that my mum and her girlfriends (including London Mums’ editor Monica Costa) used to watch when they were at my age. 
 
This movie was created to show the troubles everyone has growing up with their family and parents, and it also shows family values. The things that I listed above, were shown in the movie in a funny way, with hilarious characters and monsters, and it was very nice to watch.
In my opinion, the movie was great and I would definitely give it a 10/10 rating. 
I highly recommend for anyone to go and watch it over the school holidays and Halloween.

Eerie, spooky and ominous,  the Addams family settles on a gloomy hilltop mansion. Little do they know their seemingly good, kind and welcoming neighbours are plotting to get rid of their ‘house of horrors’. Amid a war of the ordinary versus the extraordinary, the ones who dare to be different  emerge victorious.

Hilarious and creepy,  this film is not for the faint-hearted. Prepare yourself to die of laughter and terror. Enjoy!
