Herman, Lily, and Grandpa Munster return to the film version of the beloved The Munsters sitcom.

Horror-loving director Rob Zombie (with 2007’s Halloween’s House of 1000 Corpses) asserts that his new movie The Munsters based on the famous sitcom about a clan of monsters from the ’60s is inherently more child-friendly than previous movies.

“Yeah, it’s 100 percent in the spirit of the show, I didn’t want it to be different. I wanted to totally retain the vibe that it had in the ’60s.”

EW has revealed the trailer (above) for the movie in which Jeff Daniel Phillips stars as Herman Munster, the director’s wife Sheri Moon Zombie plays Lily Munster, and Daniel Roebuck will play the role of Grandpa.

“I wanted to cast people that had worked together a lot,” says Zombie, who shot the film in Hungary. “I couldn’t risk getting on set in Budapest and going, my leads aren’t getting along, they have no chemistry. So that’s why I chose the cast I chose. Jeff Daniel Phillips and Sheri Moon Zombie and Daniel Roebuck, they work together a lot and I knew they would just fall right into it.”

The film’s cast includes Jorge Garcia, Richard Brake, Catherine Schell, Sylvester McCoy, and Cassandra Petersen, a.k.a. “Elvira” (Barbara Carr).

“We’ve been friends with Cassandra for I don’t even know how long,” says Zombie. “She was at our wedding, she was at Sheri’s shower. We’ve been friends with her for at least 25 years. So that was another good person that could come in and fit right in, totally familiar.”

Zombie’s TV show is different from the original in one important way. His Munsters is in color!

“I knew that if I went in and demanded ‘This movie’s going to be in black and white or forget it!’ we would not be talking about the Munsters right now, because it would have never happened. I guaran-f—ing-tee it,” says the director. “But what I did do is I made the colors sort of hyper-real. I noticed when the actors were in their makeup and they were just walking around, getting lunch or whatever, they looked like cartoon characters come to life. They were just so insanely colorful. I was like, I have to light the movie in the same fashion. It really seemed at all times like a live-action cartoon, which was really exciting.”

The Munsters will be released this fall by Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production arm of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group.
