    I thought this had a thread here, but no luck finding it.

    IDK what you all thought of Rob's Halloween movies. I personally loved his original gore-fest (House Of 1000 Corpses, Devil's Rejects and 3 From Hell which I have yet to get hold of) and The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto.

    Now Rob is doing up The Munsters, apparently as a film.

    ...and in the latest casting news

    Do we think Rob can pull this off?

    I need a trailer for this one. Is he going for a comedy which is way out of his wheelhouse or is this like the Blumhouse Fantasy Island where they’ll make the property into actual horror? I just don’t know what this’ll be.

    Yeah, if it's a comedy instead of a straight horror, I might be interested. Especially with that special casting.

    Otherwise, hard pass even with that casting.

    One and two worked great, but it fell off a cliff at 3FH, imo.

    I'm in.

    I feel like Rob could do comedy + horror as well as anyone, based in Suberbeasto.

    It'll be interesting, whatever else.

    That is interesting casting. I've never liked The Munsters (I'm an Addams Family guy, personally), so I don't have any real connection to this. At bare minimum it will probably be interesting, but with Zombie's track record it will probably also be really bad, just not in a boring way.

    I don't like super violent, gory horror, so I've never seen any of his stuff, but I would be interested if he tones that down, and goes for something closer in tone to the original show.

    I could have done without the rape scenes in Halloween and devils rejects.

    Daniel Roebuck looks great as Grandpa and I know he can act. I think it'll be a good performance.
