This Fan Trailer Imagines a Darker ADDAMS FAMILY Reboot on Netflix

It’s been far too long since The Addams Family has graced the small screen with their presence, and almost a quarter century since their last feature film. Charles Addams’ delightfully macabre creations are overdue for a modern update, and it will probably happen eventually. But for now, we’ll have to settle for an amusing new fan-made video that suggests a scarier reboot on Netflix.

Alexia Bertha has posted her take on The Addams Family as a darker series by using a few clips from the 1991 Addams Family movie as well as footage from Penny Dreadful and a few other sources. Bertha’s video was so well done that it managed to fool at least a few people, but it is sadly just a parody…for now. The ’91 movie and its sequel, Addams Family Values, were both directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, who has recently done a great job of bringing A Series of Unfortunate Events to Netflix as an original show. Sonnefeld still has our full support if he ever decides to reboot it again.


As much as we enjoyed Bertha’s video, and love the notion of Oscar Isaac and Eva Green as possible leads, we do have to take some issue with the danger implied by the blood in the snow. It’s easy to forget that the Addams family are neither monsters nor evil. They simply don’t care what other people think about them and they fully embrace their supernaturally tinged weirdness. Just a few years ago, NBC and Bryan Fuller’s Mockingbird Lane attempted to add a darker edge to The Munsters, but it lacked the charm of the original series. If Netflix were to take that approach to The Addams Family, it would risk repeating the same mistake.
