They're creepy and they're kooky, Mysterious and spooky, They're altogether ooky, The Addams Family. *Snap, Snap!*
A new picture of Christina Ricci posing as Morticia Addams has caused a ripple of spooky nostalgia online. It's pretty surreal to see the actress out of her Wednesday mourning clothes and wearing a slinkier number more befitting of her mother, Morticia.
When I first saw the image time stood still for a moment as I daydreamed about a possible Addams Family remake, but sadly this dreaming came to a screeching halt as I realized that the image is fake. The image first surfaced online on Mystical Enchantment's Tumblr account and has been spreading like wildfire online, you'll see just why very soon.
If you're a huge Addams Family fan like me then you'll remember how hilariously dark Wednesday Addams was. Like the time she tried her hardest to smile, but it just didn't work out...
And here is that photoshopped fan image.
Wednesday ''Morticia'' Addams
I never thought I would see Christina as Morticia. But she looks incredible as The Addams Family’s matriarch.
Yahoo discovered that this photoshopped image of Christina as Morticia is based around a publicity still of Anjelica Huston from the 1990s.
Are you seeing double?
Fans took to online platforms to share their enthusiasm for a reboot starring Christina Ricci as Morticia.
And some fans just couldn't even.
The image really shows just how well Christina would suit the character of Morticia if a live-action reboot is ever considered, although it would be tough to see Anjelica Huston replaced.
The dark cast last reunited back in 1993 for the sequel Addams Family Values, and ever since then Christina has been the morbid poster girl for the show.
Christina Ricci has re-joined the dark side a few times since her Wednesday Addams days. She starred alongside Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, and more recently the actress has been starring in the mini TV series The Lizzy Borden Chronicles.
The only news from the kooky family is that there is an animated movie planned, but how epic would it be if some of the original cast come back to do the voiceovers?!
