We’re going to rack up two recent Addams Family reboots in no time, so it’s no surprise that the other quintessentially disturbing family is also getting its own. ‘The Munsters’, Rob Zombie’s reimagining of ‘The Monster Family’ goes ahead and already has a new longer trailer.
The new Munsters
They already showed us a first preview of this reboot of the sixties series, where we saw the new actors recreate the classic intro of the show. The director has advanced the new trailer (available at the moment only in English) through his Instagram account, where we have been able to see a little more of the story, which it will be in full color.
Zombie’s version is presented as “the greatest love story ever told”, where we find Lilly Munster (Sheri Moon Zombie) in search of “the ideal man” and Grandpa Munster (daniel rodbuck) decides to lend a hand giving life to Herman Munster (Jeff Daniel Phillips).
The adventures of this peculiar family that moves from Transylvania to an American suburb will also feature interventions by Cassandra Peterson (better known as Elvira), Jorge Garcia and two stars from the original series: Butch Patrick and Pat Priest.
Rob Zombie, who has us more accustomed to bloody and unleashed horror films such as ‘The House of 1000 Corpses’ or ‘The Devil’s Rejects’, has unearthed his nostalgia to direct and write the script for this new adaptation of the story. In fact, It’s going to be the director’s first film not to be rated R.
Tape it was shot in budapest (Hungary), where the Mockingbird Lane neighborhood has been recreated from scratch. It is a production of Universal 1440 Entertainment, a subsidiary of Universal.
‘The Munsters’ is scheduled to premiere in September 2022 in the US. In Spain we still have no release date but it is said that perhaps the film will go directly to platforms.
