Trivia:
"The Munsters" (1964) series director Gene Reynolds was the original choice to helm this movie, but found it difficult to work with the director of photography and was fired after just a couple of days for not working fast enough (the film had to be shot in 18 to 25 days). He was replaced by Earl Bellamy.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Freddie complains, "I'm Lord Munster, not HIM!" Lady Effigie explains that Freddie should have used the pronoun HE because "the objective pronoun always takes the nominative case". While she is right that Freddie should have used the pronoun HE, her explanation should have been, "When the predicate pronoun refers to the subject, the pronoun takes the nominative case". In fact, most pronouns in the predicate of a sentence are in the objective case, not the nominative case.See more »

A Green Monster in Swinging London, 30 October 2004
Author: directoroffantasies from Tampa Bay, Florida

This film appeared at the height of the Swinging London movement of the mid-Sixties, when even Batman made a televised visit to Britain. A cross section of British funnymen came aboard to welcome America's improbably sweet family of ghouls to the old country. (And never mind that the name "Munster" is Irish and not English).

Fred Gwynne never looked back after making this final appearance as Frankenstein's monster, so bitter was he at the lingering pain performing the role caused him. It's a shame, because he was never better than in this lightweight role of goofy old Herman.

As he was in "Car 54", Al Lewis is Gwynne's sidekick, gleefully gnawing on the scenery as an over-the-top sendup of Dracula. Frankenstein vs. Dracula sounds like one of those high-concept films only the hard core will watch, but these two made it work.

I saw this film in the theater during its first run and continue to enjoy it on its occasional TV appearances. Often these are during the run-up to Halloween, when "Munster Go Home" acts as an antidote to the depressing run of horror films.
