If you’re a fan of horror movies, you should definitely be aware of the latest news concerning the Munsters. In fact, if you’re in the US, you can already stream the movie from Netflix, and now there are reports that the Munsters are set to make a return.
Sheri Moon Zombie has been cast as Lily Munster
The Munsters is a 2022 American horror comedy film written and directed by Rob Zombie. It’s a reboot of the 1960s family sitcom. It’s also a prequel to the series.
The new film centers on the origins of the spooky family. The movie will release in theaters and on VOD in September. In the new version, a werewolf called Lester is introduced to the Munsters. Then, the family goes to live TV to see “Good Morning Transylvania.”
While it’s not an exact re-telling of the original show, it’s a love letter to it. In fact, the new film features some of the original cast members.
The cast includes Catherine Schell as Zoya Krupp, the gypsy queen. She plays a character similar to the Dracula’s Daughter from the original series. Other cast members include Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa Munster, and Cassandra Peterson as Elvira, the mistress of the dark.
The movie will also feature Dee Wallace as the voice of Good Morning Transylvania. In addition to being an actor, Wallace played a character named Bill Moseley in the Firefly trilogy.
Rob Zombie is co-headlining US tour with Mudvayne

The tour will make 21 stops across the U.S., including stops in California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah. The tour will also have a few other surprises. This is one of the first tours that Mudvayne has done since reuniting with vocalist Chad Gray and guitarist John 5.
The tour will also have the aforementioned foxy feces and booze, as well as a bunch of the other usual suspects. The tour is a collaboration between Live Nation, Rob Zombie’s management company and his label, Monster Records. The tour will also feature Rob Zombie’s other projects like The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy and The Munsters, as well as a few other surprise guest performances.
Here Come the Munsters was first bonafide horror
