Netflix Announces Fall Debut for Rob Zombie’s “The Munsters”

Those of us who’ve been wondering when Rob Zombie’s The Munsters would be available on streaming services may finally rest easy. It was revealed today that the newest feature-length film from the filmmaker of House of 1000 Corpses will be available on Netflix on September 27.

If you’ve been paying attention or following the previous articles we’ve published about release updates for the movie, you’ll know that this is the same date that the picture will hit Blu-ray, digital, and DVD. Netflix members may watch the movie online at no extra cost, but die-hard Zombie fans might consider purchasing the Blu-ray or DVD to get the extra hour of features, which includes interviews and outtakes with the cast and director.

The film directed by Zombie will focus on the beginnings of Lily (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Herman Munster’s (Jeff Daniel Phillips) romance, updating the classic 1960s CBS sitcom while remaining faithful to its groovy roots. A trailer for the film was released last month, and it revealed several story points that would likely be explored throughout the movie.

Along with the main love story, we’ll learn more about Lily and her father, The Count, played by Dan Roebuck, who hates her new love interest. There’s a large supporting cast as well, with names like Cassandra Peterson, Jorge Garcia, Sylvester McCoy, Tomas Boykin, Richard Brake, and many more appearing on the call sheet.

There will be many more storylines to come thanks to the inclusion of characters like Lester the Werewolf (Boykin), Tin Can Man (original cast member Butch Patrick), and even one-episode wonder and spokes-ghoul for Crumble Creatures Crackers, Zombo.

Along with the release of his film envisioning, Zombie has maintained to stick to his musical origins by bringing out not one, but two in-universe-themed songs. Two of the ghoulish host’s most popular songs, “It’s Zombo” and “House of Zombo,” is featured on the debut Zombo record.

Another recent release was an announcement that Zombie will be releasing a vinyl featuring Herman and Lily, who would sing a cover of “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher. Both records are out now. While mum’s been the word when it comes to an official soundtrack or any other The Munsters based musical musings, we’re anticipating Zombie to drop at least one or two more treats for his followers in the approaching month.

We can’t wait till September 27 to see out what surprises Zombie has in store for the production. See the teaser down below.
