    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.

    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.

    So far, the only pics I've seen are of Herman, Lily and Grandpa - no sign of Marilyn or the kids. (Plus a not-so-vampy Elvira as a real estate agent.) So is this a prequel? Herman & Lily in their newlywed, settling into their new house phase?

    Zombie movies are a mixed bag for me. I love his style of filmmaking, but can't stand his writing. His characters are always white trash who curse constantly and have crude humor. It worked fine for House of 1000 corpses and Devils Rejects, but not so much for Halloween. He uses the same actors in every movie including his wife, who is not a good actress and, no surprise, is playing Mrs. Munster. It's like watching a bad theater troupe perform over and over again.

    Movie is apparently rated PG by the way.

    Nice to know. Now that really has me curious, since that implies this will be a very different style from Zombie's usual movies.

    I'm not sold on Herman from that teaser, that looks like a guy doing charades or something, maybe I'm just overly familiar with Fred Gwynne's take.

    For a short clip of what basically amounts to the opening, I'm cautiously optimistic.

    It's a passion project it seems for Zombie but not so sure of this thing.

    On Origins story!

    I so hope this hits big.

    Then maybe he'll do an Addams Family revival too.
