Rob ZombieS ‘ The Munsters will release in September 2022we’ve learned this morning, and Zombie has also debuted the full trailer for his adaptation of the classic TV series.
Watch The Munsters official trailer below, which makes it clear that this is something of an origin tale, documenting the love story between Herman Munster and Lily Munster.
Yes, a Rob Zombie love story… for all ages. We never thought we’d see the day!
It’s clear based on the trailer that Zombie is fully leaning into retro, kid-friendly campiness for this one, a bold departure for the filmmaker behind House of 1000 Corpses, Halloween, The Devil’s Rejectsand 3 from Hell. How well will that work out? We’ll find out this Halloween…
Jeff Daniel Phillips is playing Herman Munster and Sherry Moon Zombie is playing Lily Munster in Zombie’s movie, with Daniel Roebuck co-starring as Grandpa Munster.
Richard Brake (31, 3 from Hell) is playing Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang. Catherine Schell (“Space: 1999,” The Return of the Pink Panther) is playing “Zoya Krupp the gypsy queen.”
Dee Wallace, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson and Jorge Garcia will also star in the film, alongside original “The Munsters” television series actors Butch Patrick and Pat Priest.
If you want to revisit the original series, “The Munsters” is streaming on Peacock. That series ran for just two seasons between 1964 and 1966, spawning several feature films and a sequel television series titled “The Munsters Today” (1988 – 1991). Most recently, Bryan Fuller’s “Mockingbird Lane” reimagined the series for NBC, but never made it past a pilot episode.
