Monster Family is the big screen adaption of David Safier’s best-selling novel and tells the story of the very much unhappy Wishbone family, Frank (Nick Frost) , Emma (Emily Watson) and their kids Max (Ethan Rouse) and Fay (Jessica Brown Findlay) under pressure and constantly at each other’s throats. When they are cursed by an evil witch and transformed into their own monstrous party costumes, they must pull together to battle real-life beasts; reverse the curse; and prove that even a vampire, a mummy, a werewolf, and Frankenstein’s monster can eventually form one big happy family. When the Wishbones snap, only love can stitch them back together…
