Beware! A foreboding presence approaches, and it goes by the name of “The Munsters’ Scary Little Christmas.” This cinematic delight emerged from the shadows in 1996, riding the coattails of the resurging popularity of the Addams Family in both the realms of film and television. Crafted as a made-for-TV masterpiece, this production features a revamped cast, with Sam McMurray stepping into the iconic shoes of Herman Munster, Ann Magnuson portraying the role of his wife Lily, and Sandy Baron taking on the mantle of the new Grandpa.
Devotees of the original Munsters series ardently vouch for the authenticity of this movie, asserting that it remains true to the essence of its predecessor. While the Munsters themselves are often considered a reinterpretation of the Addams Family, this incarnation leans less toward the macabre and more toward whimsical, childlike humor.
Scheduled to grace screens around November 6th, “The Munsters’ Scary Little Christmas” promises a nostalgic journey at a reasonable price. Keep a watchful eye on this gem, as it not only captures the spirit of the original series but also adds its festive twist to the beloved Munster universe.
