Storyline

Herman discovers he's the new lord of Munster Hall in England. The family sails to Britain, where they receive a tepid welcome from Lady Effigy and Freddie Munster, who throws tantrums because he wasn't named Lord Munster. An on-board romance had blossomed between Marilyn and Roger, but on land Marilyn discovers Roger's family holds a longstanding grudge against the Munsters. Herman upholds the family honor in an auto race; he and Grandpa also unlock "the secret of Munster Hall." Written by Dennis Lewis <dsl@sprynet.com>

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

When Grandpa is trying to get Herman to take the "sea-sick" pill, he is wearing gloves. When he himself takes the wolf pill by mistake, his left hand starts to change and he is no longer wearing a glove on that hand, but is still wearing a glove on the right hand. See more »

Quotes

Roger: I say, I say, you must tell me something. Did you just see a hideous giant with a ghastly green face?
Herbert: I see them all the time, friend, all the time.

America's favorite family of fright in living color!
2 November 2008 | by Little-MikeySee all my reviews

I remember seeing the movie when it came out on the silver screen over the Summer of 1966. We finally got to see the Munsters in living color. It was every fan's hope that the success of this movie would save the TV series from cancellation. Sad to say, the series was axed before the movie was released. And in spite of the crowds that paid to see the Munsters on the silver screen, the series remained in its canceled state. The Network execs had made up their minds and that decision was final! Debbie Watson was a cute and perky teenager. But casting her in a role that belonged to Pat Priest, was a big mistake that angered Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis. This choice also left many in the audience either puzzled or downright angry. I would imagine that this role also played a part in Debbie Watson's movie career, going the way it did (she retired from acting in 1972).

With all things considered, Debbie Watson played her role well.

The movie lived up to its claims. It was hilarious. It was everything that the TV series was, except that it was in living color (and there was no canned laughter). If you loved THE MUNSTERS, you'll love this movie!
