The cast of Here Come the Munsters (1995) were going to reprise their roles in this sequel. Edward Herrmann requested a small raise in his salary. The producers wanted to reduce the other cast members salary to pay Herrmann. So all of them decided not to continue with the sequel and a new cast was hired. See more »
I loved the original Munsters series from the 1960's. I also enjoyed the reunion movie from 1981. However, I cannot say I enjoyed The Munsters Today from 1988. So before I saw this film in 1996 I was a little apprehensive.
But it's a magical film which will be loved by kids and adults alike. As the title suggests, it's set during the fantastic Christmas period where The Munsters get up to all sorts of fun. Oh, and they also receive a visit from many other creatures throughout the world (I think I spotted The Creature from The Black Lagoon at one point).
The cast all do a great job. It's hard filling the shoes of the great actors from the 60's series but the cast do a wonderful job of recreating the magic (if only all TV remake movies could do it). The film has many funny scenes throughout.
Fans of the original series, I recommend you check this out. You won't be disappointed.
