Spooky season has officially arrived! If you’re looking for a family-friendly movie to get you in the spirit of Halloween without actually scaring the kids, then you might enjoy “The Addams Family 2.”

The animated sequel to the 2019 film was released in theaters and video on demand on Friday, which means audiences can decide between leaving the house or watching comfortably from home. If the latter option seems more appealing, you can rent “The Addams Family 2” on Amazon Prime Video for $19.99 (that’s cheaper than two adult tickets to the movie theater, plus popcorn and drinks). But you don’t have to watch it immediately. After placing the order, you’ll have 30 days to start streaming “The Addams Family 2,” and 48 hours to finish it once you start.

Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Javon Walton, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, and Bill Hader voice characters in the dark comedy that sends everyone’s favorite creepy and kooky family on an “extraordinary adventure” into the real world. The adventure plot unfolds after Gomez (Isaac) and Morticia (Theron) become distressed over their kids, Wednesday (Moretz) and Pugsley (Walton), spending too much time on their phones, and skipping family dinners. In hopes of bringing everyone closer together, Gomez has the bright idea to gas up a camper and take the family on an epic road trip.

“The Addams Family 2” isn’t the only new movie streaming on Prime Video. The platform offers several other in-theater movies including “Candyman,” and “Don’t Breathe 2,” plus tons of movies and TV shows along with titles that you can stream for free, which includes Prime Originals (“Cinderella,” “Everyone’s Talking About Jamie,” “Black as Night,” “The Tomorrow War,” “Without Remorse,” and Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty fashion show, among them). You can watch Amazon Prime content from your TV, and compatible streaming devices such as a laptop, notebook, or smart phone.

If you’re not already subscribed to Amazon Prime, join today and enjoy a free 30-day trial (the membership will cost $12.99 a month after the trial ends). Amazon Prime memberships include discounted pricing, free two-day shipping, and instant access to the massive Prime Video library. For those who would rather have Prime Video by itself, the standalone membership costs $8.99 a month (after a free 30-day trial). Student and EBT discounts are available for both Amazon Prime and Prime Video memberships, and you can cancel either at any time.

For dedicated binge watchers who like to keep it organized, Prime Video lets you add Starz, Paramount+, Showtime, BET+, IMDBtv, EPIX, Cinemax, and more channels to your Amazon subscription so that you can stream everything from one place.

Now that you’re ready to start streaming, kick off your movie marathon with “The Addams Family 2,” and if you’re feeling nostalgic for ‘90s classics, “The Addams Family” “Addams Family Values,” and “Addams Family Reunion,” are all available on Prime Video.
