Streaming platform Hulu has activated its popular “Huluween” playlist of creepy and kooky Halloween-centric horror titles, including The Addams Family (2019) animated movie voiced by an all-star cast: Oscar Isaac (“Gomez Addams”), Charlize Theron (“Morticia Addams”), Chlöe Grace Moretz (“Wednesday Addams”), Finn Wolfhard (“Pugsley”), Nick Kroll (“Uncle Fester”), Snoop Dogg (“It”), and… we could keep going, but it’s better you just check out the movie!
Academy Award-winning Composer Mychael Danna (The Life of Pi, Little Miss Sunshine) and EMMY-nominated Composer Jeff Danna provide the spooky score. They also return as composers for The Addams Family 2 (pre-save the album here), with the soundtrack releasing Friday, October 15, 2021, via Lakeshore Records.
“The Addams Family” is a luscious piece of macabre design. The characters have been computer-drawn so that they’re exceedingly close to the ones in Charles Addams’ original cartoons, and the film is full of keen visual details like Lurch’s ancient cracked fingernails, or Wednesday’s pigtails braided like hanging nooses, or the army of spiders that comes scuttling out of Morticia’s dress to form a bridge over the bottomless pit in the basement.- Variety
“The score combines non-western musical traditions with orchestral music to wildly creative effect.” – Bloody Disgusting

Director Nicolas Winding Refn won the Best Director award at Cannes at its premiere, and the film would go on to win many other awards and nominations, including Best Score at the International Film Music Critics Award, nominations for Best Score at the World Soundtrack Awards and LA Film Critic’s Association Awards, and earning an Oscar® Nomination (Best Achievement in Sound Editing)!
