Dir: Barry Sonnenfeld
Starring: Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, Christina Ricci


The University of Northampton‘s Cult Film Club returns with The Addams Family. Academy-award winner Anjelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Christoper Lloyd (Back to the Future) lead this eccentric adaptation from the classic one-panel comics that were first published in The New Yorker in 1938 by author Charles Addams. When patriarch Gomez (Raul Julia) laments his long lost brother, a couple of con artists hatch a scheme to fleece the oddball family by using an accomplice who makes the claim of being Gomez’s long lost brother. Oddness abounds when he is introduced to the family that includes Wednesday Addams (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley Addams (Jimmy Workman).
