Rob Zombie shares an image of Herman and Lily making beautiful music

It has been a while since we saw a new image from writer/director Rob Zombie’s feature update of the classic sitcom The Munsters, but Zombie shared one today. An image that shows his movie’s versions of Herman Munster (Jeff Daniel Phillips) and his wife Lily (Sheri Moon Zombie) making beautiful music together. You can check it out at the bottom of this article.

Rob Zombie’s The Munsters will be receiving a Collector’s Edition release on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD on September 27th, and movie will also be heading to the Netflix streaming service on an unspecified date. In the meantime, here’s a list of episodes to watch before the movie is released.

This take on The Munsters has the following synopsis:

From writer/director Rob Zombie comes the strangest love story ever told. Lily is just your typical 150-year-old, lovelorn vampire looking for the man of her nightmares . . . that is until she lays eyes on Herman, a seven-foot-tall, green experiment with a heart of gold. It’s love at first shock as these two ghouls fall fangs over feet in this crazy Transylvanian romance. Unfortunately, it’s not all smooth sailing in the cemetery as Lily’s father The Count has other plans for his beloved daughter’s future, and they don’t involve her bumbling beau, Herman. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll howl at the moon as The Munsters make their way to Mockingbird Lane!

Jeff Daniel Phillips and Sheri Moon Zombie are joined in the cast of The Munsters by Daniel Roebuck as The Count, Richard Brake as mad scientist Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang, Catherine Schell as a gypsy woman named Zoya Krupp, Jorge Garcia as Herman’s friend Floop, Tomas Boykin as Lily’s werewolf brother Lester, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson as realtor Barbara Carr, Dee Wallace as the voice of Good Morning Transylvania, and Sylvester McCoy as Igor, the loyal servant to the Munsters. Jeremy Wheeling, Roderick Hill, and Mark Griffith are also in there are Mr. Gateman, Mr. Goodbury, and Mr. Graves, the owners of the Gateman, Goodbury, and Graves Funeral Home. Sitcom cast member Pat Priest is in there, and her sitcom co-star Butch Patrick is playing The Tin Can Man.

The Munsters ran for two seasons, from September 1964 to May 1966, and consisted of 70 episodes. (You can buy the complete series at THIS LINK.) Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Zombie said his movie The Munsters is “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.” His commitment to retaining the spirit of the show is evident in the film’s PG rating for “macabre and suggestive material, scary images and language”
