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 series' move to the big screen came about after the show was canceled having been trounced by Batman (1966). The hope was the film would introduce the series to the world in advance of negotiating future syndication rights. See more »

Goofs

The SS United States is depicted as having wooden doors and furniture- neither which existed aboard the real liner. The designer of the ship was a fanatic about fire safety, virtually no wood was aboard. Additionally, the portholes in the cabins were sealed. In the movie they are shown open. See more »

Munster Go Home Retains the Charm
16 January 2005 | by NavinParkerSee all my reviews

After appearing in 57 of 70 television episodes as Marilyn Munster one would think Pat Priest would have been included in The Munster's FIRST feature length film. There was some lame excuse that she was too old, even though the film was released a year after the series' last episode. Debbie Watson gave a good performance in MGH, but I had a difficult time excepting her as part of the Munster clan.

This, however, did not detract from the film that Munster Charm that came to us for two wonderful seasons on The Munsters. I still loved the film in all its brilliant color. I've just purchased the First Season episodes on DVD and am very saddened and surprised to learn Munster Go Home, the DVD version, is currently out out of print. Munster Go Home is as enjoyable as the series and should be offered to all Munster fans of all ages to enjoy.
