The Munsters get a Rob zombie makeover in The Devil’s Rejects Inspired Fan Art
The news of the restart of Rob Zombie Zombie The Minster got quite the response on social media, and an interesting fan artwork gave us a preview of what the movie might look like. Zombie, who made his filmmaking debut with House of 1000 Corpses in 2003, usually creates characters with a specific look and personality. On Instagram, artist Doug McHardlane created some works of art from the classic sitcom that gave members of the monster family a Devils Rejects-style makeover. You can check it out below.
“It’s been on my mind since I heard Rob Zombie had the rights to restart The Munsters,” says McHardlane in the caption. “Hopefully I’m wrong about what’s going to happen here, but in case I’m not here, it’s here with a timestamp so I can say I told you.”
McHardlane designed this artwork back in March when news of Rob Zombie’s version of The Munsters was first announced. At the time, the news was just rumor with no official confirmation from Zombie or Universal Pictures where the project was allegedly in development. A recent post from Zombie finally confirmed the information with the filmmaker and musician posting the film’s official logo on his Instagram account.
“Beware of boils and ghouls! The rumors are true!” Said Zombie in the Instagram post. “My next film project will be the one I’ve been following for 20 years! The Munsters! Stay tuned for the exciting details as things move forward!”
Since the rumors that the film took place have been proven to be true, it stands to reason that some of the rumored casting information may also be correct. The original report indicated that two of zombie favorite actors would star with Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster and Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman. Dan Roebuck, Jorge Garcia and Richard Brake were also reportedly cast in leading roles, although their characters were not named. Rumor has it that Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson will also play a supporting role.
Rob zombie is certainly best known for its one-of-a-kind horror films. His latest film 3 from Hell was released in 2019. It featured one of Sid Haig’s final appearances as Captain Spaulding, while Sheri Moon Zombie as a baby and Bill Moseley as Otis Driftwood were also brought back. It was one of the most violent and disturbing zombie films to date.
Given Zombie’s cinematic style, there are concerns from fans that his reboot of The Munsters is not in keeping with the classic series. Most fans of the original series seem to prefer the monster family to keep the family-friendly aspects of their storyline. The good news is that Zombie has given no indication that this will be another R-rated horror, and since he’s a lifelong fan of the original series, it seems more likely that he will try to be more loyal to the series stay.
Allegedly, The Munsters is currently being produced in Budapest. A release date for the film has not yet been announced, but rumors continue that the project is slated for an exclusive premiere on NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock. Rob Zombies The Munsters fan art was posted on Instagram by Doug McHardlane.
