The Family: A relentlessly macabre (but actually quite good-hearted underneath it all) clan, with a penchant for all things ghoulish.
Blissfully unaware that they scare the living daylights out of everyone they meet. Bless.
Strangest Member: Cousin Itt, a shadow-dwelling oddball covered head to toe in densely impenetrable hair.

That was a nice list. I would have rated the Griswolds a lot higher though. But are they even weird...it's probably just so funny because it's so close to a real family. Some I would add to the list: The Laemles from the underrated small movie named "Parents" (1989) with R. Quaid, then the Cleeks from "The Woman" (2011) and the whole Fox family from "You've Got Mail".

The Yamazaki's from Visitor Q - The Dad is having sex with the daughter who seems to be a prostitute and possibly the one who instigated the whole thing. The mother is so repressed she projectile lactates at will. Then there's the son and the whole thing with a spot of necrophilia. Lovely bunch really.

In Requiem For A Dream, she was his mother, not his grandmother.

And it's "a dog in heat", not "a dog on heat"!

The fact that you didn't include the family in Hotel New Hampshire is just RIDICULOUS.

You could make a case for the Hansens in "The Celebration". Reading out the account of your fathers sexual abuse of you at said fathers 60th birthday party has got to earn you something...

What about the family from "Dogtooth"?

'Leicester'? Surely you mean 'Lester'. Great list though.

what about Lola, Daddy & Bright Eyes from The Loved Ones, the Vangers from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or the family from Down Terrace?

The Dinkle family in Mary and Max are pretty eccentric. Especially Vera.
