Munsters Go Home movie

1966 FILM FROM UNIVERSAL

This movie was made right after the series was cancelled at the end of the second season. It included the entire cast except for some reason they recast Marilyn with actress Debbie Watson.

Unlike the series, the movie was made in color. So we finally see how green the Munsters are, instead of just hearing about it. This is rather an odd choice, given that the series was a sort of homage to the old black and white Universal horror films. The color of the makeup isn't that great, but the movie was a pretty good continuation of the series.
