Check out the new poster for Rob Zombie’s upcoming movie adaptation of the classic ‘60s TV series The Munsters. It seems like a lot of people are happy about this movie, and I really hope that it ends up being good. It seems like a fun movie so far.
The movie follows a family of benign monsters who resettle from Transylvania to the American suburbs. The cast contains Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, and Dan Roebuck as Grandpa Munster, along with Doctor Who and Hobbit actor Sylvester McCoy, who is playing Igor, “the faithful servant of the family”, Dee Wallace, Elvira actress Cassandra Peterson as a real estate agent, Tomas Boykin as Lily Munster’s werewolf brother, Lester, and Uncle Gilbert is also in the movie.
When talking about the style and theme of the movie Zombie said, “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.”
