Meet the trailer for The Munster Rob Zombie version | Digital Trends Spanish

The director and writer Rob Zombie is best known for his horror movies R-rated hardcore, including House of 1000 Corpses Y The Devil’s Rejects. Which is why it’s so surprising that the next Zombie movie will be a PG-rated remake of The Munsters, the classic 1964 television sitcom created by Allan Burns and Chris Hayward. The original series was loosely inspired by Universal’s monsters, with a family headed by Herman Munster (a riff on Frankenstein’s Monster) and his wife, Lily, a vampire. However, in the new trailer below, Zombie is setting up the movie before the events of the TV show. And fans will finally learn how Herman met Lily.

Because this is a prequel, there is no sign of Marilyn Munster, the only normal human member of the family. Also absent is Eddie Munster, the werewolf son of Herman and Lily. The show never offered an explanation for Eddie’s wolf heritage. Lily seems too smitten with Herman to have an affair, so maybe Herman was made from werewolf parts.

Speaking of which, the trailer introduces viewers to the creators of Herman, while also establishing the fact that Lily’s father, The Count/Grandpa, was more than willing to make her a husband in his lab. But Herman and Lily only have eyes for each other. The trailer also features some very shoddy special effects, which appears to be an intentional Zombie twist.

Jeff Daniel Phillips heads the film as Herman Munster, with Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily, Daniel Roebuck as The Count/Grandpa, Richard Brake as Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang, Sylvester McCoy as Igor, Jorge Garcia as Floop, Catherine Schell as Zoya Krupp , Cassandra Peterson as Barbara Carr, Butch Patrick as Tin Can Man, Jeremy Wheeler as Mr. Gateman, Tomas Boykin as Lester, Roderick Hill as Mr. Goodbury, Mark Griffith as Mr. Graves, and Dee Wallace as the voice of Good Morning Transylvania.

The Munsters It will be released later this year, but Universal has not yet set a date for it.
