The Munsters (2022)

Rob Zombie managed to create a hit comedy with his version of The Munsters. Set somewhere between the late 20th and early 21st centuries (judging by the soundtrack), it’s a colorful, theatrical, and hilarious prequel, counting on a veteran cast who can afford to have fun knowing that they will play their respective roles with ease and deliver good comedic performances. They nail the gags to a t-shirt, you’ll have no choice but to burst out laughing or at least a few giggles. With this film we are given a feature version of the classic sitcom that packs a lot of wit, color and includes a soundtrack that adds to the silliness in its contrast to the characters – yes, Herman is a punk-rock singer . Jeremy Daniel Phillips portrays a Herman who is just hilarious, with the character’s polite, self-aware, and naive disposition; while Daniel RoebuckGrandpa Munster’s comically grumpy take is pretty deft. In fact, the whole cast is good in this movie.

We can only envy the team involved in the project, it can only have been fun to produce.
