The Munster Family Gets New Duds For Big-Screen Reboot

Lily, Herman and Grandpa on the best-dressed list? Rob Zombie is working on it.

The horror-themed filmmaker/musician is in pre-production right now with his much-ballyhooed reboot of The Munsters, that short-lived ’60s TV series that seems to be in reruns somewhere in the world even to this day.

And the latest tidbit from Zombie, as reported by, is a behind-the-scenes peek at the weird wardrobe for his yet-to-be announced cast of wacky monsters.

Zombie this week took to Instagram with photos of some of the apparel designed for the upcoming film. “Things are really heating up in the wardrobe department here in Budapest,” Zombie wrote. “Here are a few quick glimpses.” Check out the assortment of clothes and cloaks on this page.

This revelation comes on the heels of Zombie posting pics of nighttime wear for Herman and Lily, as well as blueprints for the family’s mansion at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, as reported here in Horror News Network.

The big news that fans have been waiting for–the casting choices–is yet to come. Zombie’s wife Sheri Moon is the odds-on bet to play Lily, and pro wrestler-turned-actor Kevin Nash recently expressed an interest in the part of Herman, but nothing has been confirmed at this time.

The Munsters TV show–which ran for 70 episodes on CBS from 1964-1966–starred Fred Gwynne as Herman, Yvonne De Carlo as Lily, Al Lewis as Grandpa, Butch Patrick as Eddie and Beverley Owen (replaced early on by Pat Priest) as Marilyn.
