Horror favorite Rob Zombie is back, but this time he’s aiming to be fun for the whole family!
Known best for flicks like House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects, Zombie is heading in a new direction with his upcoming remake of the classic sitcom The Munsters. With a PG rating promised, Zombie’s The Munsters is set to be an homage to the classic show.
This first teaser recreates the sitcom’s opening credits, but with a slight twist: it’s now in living color! That’s right, the original show, which ran from 1964-66, ran in black and white. Although the colorful lives of the classic monster movie-esque family it followed more than made up for it. However, it was tragically short lived. Even though its ratings were generally higher than the similarly themed The Addams Family, when Batman hit screens in the same timeslot and began to best The Munsters‘ ratings the show was dropped.
With Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, and Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, the teaser promises fans of the show a chance to see their favorite monsters back in action again.
There is no official release date for the film yet, but it will arrive this year. Watch the teaser below!
