Fans of physical media rejoice! Rob Zombie’s The Munsters will be releasing on Bluray/DVD/Digital on Tuesday September 27, 2022. And for fans of bonus content, they’ve already announced an hour long behind the scenes documentary, along with a feature commentary from Rob Zombie himself.
It was reported earlier this week that the movie would be releasing to Netflix as well, however it’s unclear at this point if that will also be on Sept. 27 or if its streaming release will be later. For physical media collectors, this is certainly good news.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Press Release also had this to say:
Featuring an incredible cast of familiar horror genre icons, the film stars Sheri Moon Zombie (The Devil’s Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses, 31) as Lily, Jeff Daniel Phillips (3 From Hell, The Lords of Salem) as Herman Munster, and Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, U.S. Marshals) as The Count alongside a multi-talented supporting cast including Richard Brake (Batman Begins, “Game of Thrones”), Jorge Garcia (“Lost”, “Hawaii Five-O”), Sylvester McCoy (The Hobbit franchise), Catherine Schell (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark), and Tomas Boykin (I AM) as well as special guest appearances by original “The Munsters” cast members Butch Patrick and Pat Priest!
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!
