First Look at Rob Zombie's The Munsters

Can Rob Zombie Resurrect The Munsters?

The Munsters was a sitcom about the home life of fictional monsters in 1960's. The series starred Fred Gwynne (Herman Munster), Yvonne De Carlo (Lily), Al Lewis (Grandpa), Beverley Owen (Marilyn), Butch Patrick (Eddie). Director/Musician Rob Zombie is currently filming "The Munsters" movie. Zombie is well know for his films House of 1,000 Corpses, Halloween, The Devil’s Rejects, 3 From Hell, and The Lords of Salem.

How will Zombie do it, and still keep the integrity of the original series set in the 1960's? Hopefully he will not try to update "The Munsters" to modern time like series and movies have tried to do in the past. The Munsters have had many remakes and reboots through the years The Munsters Today, The Munsters (Animated Series), The Munsters' Scary Little Christmas and Mockingbird Lane (Series).

Right off the bat... pun intended. We see Sheri Moon-Zombie (Lily), Rob Zombie's wife starring in yet another Rob Zombie film. She has literally been in all he's films. The other two gentle men are harder to place due to heavy prosthetic makeup. Jeff Daniel Phillips (Herman), best know for his roles in 3 from Hell, Halloween II, The Lords of Salem and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Daniel Roebuck (Grandpa) best known for his roles in The Fugitive, Final Destination, The Devil's Rejects, and Criminal Minds.

Rob Zombie and cast just might be able to pull this off but let's not forget Zombie's Halloween II, 31, and The Lords Of Salem that were film flops. Yet, if Zombie can pull this off, this would be the closest that anyone has ever got to correctly rebooting The Munsters.
