Based on Charles Addams' New Yorker cartoons, this comedy featured the directorial debut of Barry Sonnenfeld, then better-known as the cinematographer of the Coen brothers (and other helmers).

It stars Anjelica Huston as Morticia, Raul Julia as Gomez, and best of all, Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester.

In 1993, Sonnefeld directed the sequel, “Addams Family Values,” with almost the same cast.
