Brief Synopsis – Herman Munster is summoned to England after he inherits a castle and a fortune that goes with it.
My Take on it – After recently hearing about this film, I was quite intrigued to see how this movie fared since I was a big fan of the TV show The Munsters when it was shown in syndication when I was a kid.
They manage to bring back most of the cast from the show and put them all in a fish out of water predicament that they need to deal with.
The TV was entirely shot in black and white, but this movie actually gives the viewer a chance to see the various colors of the characters due to the fact that this is in full technicolor.
The film makes all of the British characters act and sound very stereotypical and that takes away from thinsg a bit.
I’ve always loved the fact that Herman breaks so many things accidentally and in this film, that continues.
The story itself is quite silly and makes very little sense, but despite that, it’s still fun to see this family deal with their new surroundings.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – “The Munsters (1964)” move to the big screen came about after the show was canceled having been trounced by “Batman (1966).” The hope was the film would introduce the series to the world in advance of negotiating future syndication rights. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
