Good news for fans of 60s macabre-themed TV shows like The Addams Family and The Munsters. The latter has been turned into a movie by Rob Zombie.

Rob Zombie, who is a long-time fan of the television series, has always wanted to turn The Munsters into a feature film and now he finally did. Zombie said the character designs would be faithful to the source material, and the film is shot at an exact replica of the Mockingbird Lane Mansion, built from the ground up for the movie.
