The trailer for Rob Zombie's new Munsters film has landed, and it's a bit odd...

You could say that Rob Zombie is a musician and director with a singular vision. His music, as both White Zombie and his solo stuff, has been great. But his movies can be a bit incoherent to say the least, they look great and have stylishly gruesome set pieces, but plot, story and making any sort of sense? Nah.

Zombie has proclaimed the Munsters as his favourite TV series of all time and has harboured the desire to make a movie for ages. Now we have a trailer, and it looks, well just plain bad…

The original TV series had charm and warmth to it, based on the trailer this looks to have neither. Remember the Addams Family movies? They managed to keep the core of the TV series appeal whilst upping the stakes to feature film level. Zombie seems to have unleashed a cheap, over-lit parody. None of the gags land, the characters look like they are doing impersonations rather than acting, every scene is flooded with green and purple lighting that destroys any atmosphere.

But maybe that’s just the trailer, let’s reserve judgement until we see the whole thing, but it doesn’t bode well does it?
