It’s that time of year again; Halloween is just around the corner! It’s the perfect time to curl up with some good thrillers or horror films and get a good old-fashioned scare.
However, we have the perfect suggestions for you if you’re not in the mood for a scare-fest or if horror is simply not your thing, but you still want to get in the Halloween spirit!
What about the Addams Family? Obviously, you have. We saw the classic film series over and over again as kids, and it became an integral part of our lives. The film adaptations, as well as the originals, from the ’90s, come highly recommended.
On the other hand, with Tim Burton’s Wednesday (with Jenna Ortega of Scream) premiering on Netflix on November 23, 2023, now is the perfect moment to see all of the original films in one sitting.
What will Wednesday be about
Wednesday has been labeled a unique blend of fantasy-horror-mystery-comedy – but has been described first and foremost as a coming-of-age serial. The 8-episode first season covers Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy.
According to the official synopsis released by Netflix, the show will chart “Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized.
The Local Town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”

Jenna Ortega, who plays Wednesday Addams on Netflix’s “Wednesday,” talks about her role.
Actress Jenna Ortega is thrilled to play the title role of Wednesday Addams. What does she have to say about it? “Wednesday has never before been seen in her adolescent years.
When coming from an adult, her caustic comments may not be as endearing as they are from a 10-year-old girl. That required some careful juggling.
There was a fine line to walk between making her sound too naive and making her sound like every other adolescent girl. The amount of screen time she has received at this point is unprecedented.
If you’ve seen Wednesday in any other context, you know that she always delivers the punchline, the final joke punch, and that’s why so many people adore her. Wednesdays are always the focus of the scenes in this show.
We have a chance to make her more three-dimensional than we have before, making her more like a real person.”
In the second season of the Netflix psychological thriller YOU, Jenna played the lead character of Ellie Alves. The series starred Penn Badgley as the compulsive serial killer Joe Goldberg and Ellie, a tech-savvy kid.
Previously, Jenna had portrayed a young Jane on the popular series Jane The Virgin, and in Richie Rich, she played Richie’s gold-digging closest friend Darcy in 2015 series.
She then appeared in the horror film The Babysitter: Killer Queen and the comedy Yes Day, where she played Harley Diaz.
Her role as a high school student in the drama The Fallout garnered her great acclaim, and she also provided the voice of Brooklyn in the animated film Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
