Trivia

The door knocker in this holiday-themed television special is based on Jacob Marley from Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" depicting the moment in which Ebenezer Scrooge views Marley's spooky face rather than his own knocker. See more »

Absolute Magic
12 August 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

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.
