Audience Reviews for Munster, Go Home
Made just after the series ended it's run on TV, the Munster's quickly returned on the big screen, in what is essentially a bloated Munsters episode set in England and in Color. The cast from the show all return, with the exception of Pat Priest as Marilyn (Universal apparently changed her for some contract actress they had), and the plot involves Herman inheriting a British estate and becoming Lord Munster (much to the chagrin of the Bratty British Munsters who wanted the power and money). Somehow it all ends up with Herman in a drag race. If you like the show, this is a fun addition to that, but it has some gags repeated from the show and isn't the most exciting thing in the world. Fun for family Halloween viewing, but not as fun as the series had been.
Herman Muster inherits a title as well as lots of money and a castle in England, so the family ventures over there to start their new life. They are not well liked due to the 300 years of the English wing of the family having a reputation of being seen as the "others" - odd, alien, bloodsuckers who are known for such misdoings as poisoning wells and killing people in the countryside and doing strange things to the bodies. The family has a nefarious reputation, but are wealthy and have been able to buy off the town constable. I wasnt familiar with the series, but I found this rather enjoyable with lots of gags, especially owing to the classic Universal monsters.
Movie fans, go home! Run for the exits too! Not funny, not even mildly amusing. The Addams Family (which I tend to confuse with these morons The Munsters) aren't even in the same graveyard.

Even then skip it. One minute of film will convince most anyone but a 2 year old to change channels.

It was directed by Earl Bellamy, who also directed a number of episodes in the series. The film reunited the original cast, except for Marilyn, who was played by Debbie Watson.

Many of these actors are long forgotten or worse, no doubt never heard of by most RT members.
