Note: This post is in partnership with Paramount Home Entertainment. I received "The Addams Family Halloween" Starter Kit for review purpose. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
So how did we prepare for Halloween this year?
I was inspired by The Addams Family and Addams Family Values being released in a 2-Movie Collection from Paramount Home Entertainment. I knew this would be the perfect double feature for family movie night.
Make Halloween treats
But you can't have a movie night without food and snacks! So my son and I made some spooky but healthy Halloween treats for family and friends to enjoy. On our plate ready to be devoured included
- Ghost Bananas (banana and chocolate chips)
- Pumpkin Oranges (pumpkins and celery)
- Mummy Hotdogs (hot dogs and crescent dough)
- Ants on a Log (celery, peanut butter and chocolate chips)
Everything was so yummy and perfect for movie night.
Put on Halloween Make-up (Sorta)
Now all I needed was to get into "character". To help me with this I received an "Addams Family Halloween" Starter Kit from Paramount Home Entertainment that included
- The two-movie Blu-ray collection
- A bald cap
- Black and white face paint
- Red lipstick and nail polish
- A paste-on mustache
- and a finger trap
I was so tempted to use the bald cap and paint my face as Uncle Fester but the red lipstick and nail polish was a better fit. While I couldn't fully dress up as Morticia, my red nails and lips help me feel spooky and ready for movie night.
Watch a Family Friendly Halloween Movie
I grew up watching the The Addams Family films, so I know while their quirky and sometime very weird, there's no cussing, extreme violence or inappropriate scenes. There's lots of humor and ironically some life lessons about accepting who you are as a person. And lastly The Addams are all about the love and support of the family. Till the end!
It was a treat to watch both movies with family. The older generation enjoyed revisiting the family, while the young kids enjoyed being introduced to The Addams.
The Addams Family and Addams Family Values are available on DVD, Blu-ray and in a 2-Movie Collection from Paramount Home Entertainment.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY Synopsis
When long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after 25 years in the Bermuda Triangle, Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) plan a celebration to wake the dead. But Wednesday (Christina Ricci) barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester's uncommonly "normal" behavior. Could this Fester be a fake, part of an evil scheme to raid the Addams fortune?
ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES Synopsis
It's love at first fright when Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) welcome a new addition to the Addams household -- Pubert, their soft, cuddly, mustachioed baby boy. As Fester (Christopher Lloyd) falls hard for voluptuous nanny Debbie Jilinksy (Joan Cusack), Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) discover she's a black-widow murderess who plans to add Fester to her collection of dead husbands. ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES is debuting on Blu-ray for the first time.
Get ready for the most hilarious scarefest of the season with THE ADDAMS FAMILY and ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES on DVD and Blu-ray either individually or in 2-Movie DVD or Blu-ray Collections.
The kooky, spooky and all-together ooky adventures of the Addams Family are sure to have you screaming...with laughter.
