Rob Zombie premieres first full trailer for ’The Munsters’ film

Universal 1440 Entertainment

Rob Zombie has premiered the first full trailer for his film adaptation of The Munsters.

The clip, which Zombie posted to his Instagram, focuses on the origin of the relationship between Herman and Lily Munster, played by Jeff Daniel Phillips and Sheri Moon Zombie, respectively.

A voiceover in the trailer proclaims, “Rob Zombie, the director of House of 1000 Corpses, Halloween and The Devil’s Rejects, brings you the greatest love story ever told.”

The preview also illustrates the goofy, lighthearted tone of the film, which may be surprising for fans of his otherwise violent and gory filmography. Zombie previously confirmed that his Munsters will be rated PG in an effort to stick to the vibe of the original ’60s sitcom.

The Munsters is set to debut in September. The cast also includes Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa Munster plus Lost alum Jorge Garcia, Cassandra Peterson aka Elvira and original Munsters actors Butch Patrick and Pat Priest.
