A new vision maintaining the original appearance
according to account Rob Zombie to Entertainment Weekly:
“I knew that if he came in and demanded out of the box, ‘Is this movie going to be black and white or forget it!’, we wouldn’t be talking about the Munsters right now, because it never would have happened. I guarantee it. But what I did was I made the colors hyper-realistic. I noticed when the actors were in makeup and they were just walking around, having lunch or whatever, they looked like cartoon characters come to life. They were so incredibly colorful. I was like, I have to light the film the same way. It really seemed like a live-action cartoon version at all times, which was really exciting.”
