The Munsters will be available to own as a Collector’s Edition on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD on September 27, 2022 (See on Amazon). The film will also begin streaming on Netflix later this year.
Rob Zombie (3 From Hell, House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) digs up the origin story of everyone’s favorite monster family in the brand-new movie The Munsters, a hilarious and heartfelt comedy about Lily and Herman’s courtship.
Packed with zany humor, larger-than-life characters, and a groovy ’60s vibe, the Collector’s Edition is filled with over an hour of exclusive content including unseen behind-the-scenes footage with Zombie and cast as well as feature commentary with Zombie, taking viewers deeper into this adventure and the kooky undead family.
The movie stars Sheri Moon Zombie (The Devil’s Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses, 31) as Lily, Jeff Daniel Phillips (3 From Hell, The Lords of Salem) as Herman Munster, and Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, U.S. Marshals) as The Count.
The cast also includes Richard Brake (Batman Begins, Game of Thrones), Jorge Garcia (Lost, Hawaii Five-O), Sylvester McCoy (The Hobbit franchise), Catherine Schell (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark), and Tomas Boykin (I AM), as well as special guest appearances by original The Munsters cast members Butch Patrick and Pat Priest!
From writer/director Rob Zombie comes the strangest love story ever told. Lily is just your typical 150-year-old, lovelorn vampire looking for the man of her nightmares… that is until she lays eyes on Herman, 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 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!
