Synopsis:
From writer/director Rob Zombie comes the strangest love story ever told. Lily (Sheri Moon Zombie) is just your typical 150-year-old, lovelorn vampire looking for the man of her nightmares...that is until she lays eyes on Herman (Jeff Daniel Phillips), a seven-foot-tall, green experiment with a heart of gold. It's love at first shock as these two ghouls fall fangs over feet in this crazy Transylvanian romance. Unfortunately, it's not all smooth sailing in the cemetery as Lily's father The Count (Daniel Roebuck) has other plans for his beloved daughter's future, and they don't involve her bumbling beau Herman.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll howl at the moon as 'The Munsters' make their way to Mockingbird Lane!

A Terrible Version of The Munsters. Worse ever. Good Idea, makeup OK. - The Munsters review by Colbart

Spoiler Alert
26/02/2023

What has Rob Zombie done. I suppose a great Idea, poorly executed. Execution being an appropriate word.

Clothes and Makeup excellent, especially Lily and Herman. Grandpa I mean Handle-Bar Mustache!!. Turned off after 5minutes.

Don't Waste time, better off getting the classic original Black and White. 1960s version.

Absolute Rubbish - The Munsters review by GBK

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2023

I Have Seen Some Really Bad Movies Over The Years But This One Has To Be One Of The Worse Ever,

It Is I Assume A " Prequal " But If I Were You I Would Not Even Think About Watching This If You Like The Munsters As They Were,

Stick To The Originals And Totally Give This A Miss, Terrible Acting, Awful Over Colored Sets And Terrible Storyline.

I Know That It Was " Supposed To Be A Comedy " But It Was Not Funny At All.

Honestly Do Not Know What They Were Thinking In Putting This Together, Obviously Not A Lot Of Thinking Or Talent Went In To It At All,

Medium Rare - The Munsters review by NP

Spoiler Alert
06/04/2023

The opening scenes are surely a homage to the beginning of 'Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman', but filmed in garish blues and greens. There are many little nods to classic horror, some of which are shown being enjoyed on an old television by the titular characters.

The humour, always difficult and subjective, is mixed. Some moments work, others do not - and often outstay their welcome. The performances take time to make an impact but manage to have an endearing quality, and the chemistry between the leads is good. Sylvester McCoy, the Seventh Doctor Who, is good value as butler Igor.

Such is the OTT-ness of it all, it seems churlish to mention inconsistencies, but continuity is not adhered to. For example, one of the main jokes is how terrified 'normal' people react to the Munsters, but in some scenes, like when they move to a new house, people are entirely unconcerned by their appearance.

The three leads - no Marilyn or young Eddie here - are all suitably eccentric and display good, manic comedy timing. They also strike a clever balance between bringing their own portrayal to the fore, but with enough echoes of Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis and Yvonne De Carlo to please those of us who remember the originals. Sherri Moon brings a real other-worldly innocence to her stylised Lily despite the actor's lack of a light touch often necessary in comedy.
