Rob Zombie wrote and directed this PG-rated movie version of The Munsters.
Zombie is known for directing the 2007 Halloween remake.
He spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the remake and keeping it true to the original show.
“It’s 100 percent in the spirit of the show. I didn’t want it to be different. I wanted to totally retain the vibe that it had in the ’60s,” Zombie told the outlet.

The trailer for the movie starts off in black-and-white and ends with revealing “now in living color.”
Zombie told the outlet that the movie had to be in color or else it was likely it would not have been remade.
“I knew that if I went in and demanded ‘This movie’s going to be in black-and-white or forget it!’ we would not be talking about the Munsters right now, because it would have never happened,” he told EW.
He did add his own touch to the film by making the colors “sort of hyper-real.”
