The upcoming Rob Zombie Munsters movie has finally gotten its rating, and well, we’re not use to seeing this from Zombie.
Via his Instagram account, Zombie has confirmed that his Munsters movie will be rated PG. In the caption to the post, Zombie wrote:
“For those of you speculating, wondering and assuming that THE MUNSTERS would be dirty, violent and nasty… well, you are wrong. 💀 👍🏼 It’s all good down on Mockingbird Lane.”
Additionally, the Instagram image includes the following text:
“for macabre and suggestive material, scary images and language.”

While this rating is sort of a surprise to see from Zombie, we’re also talking about the Munsters here. If you’re familiar with Zombie’s filmography, you know that his material is far from PG. From House of 1000 Corpses to The Devil’s Rejects, to his re-make of Halloween to The Lords of Salem, the guy is all for graphic violence, sex, and gore.
But this is the Munsters, and it looks like the horror-rocker intends on keeping his adaptation faithful to the wholesome television show.
Back in 2021, Zombie announced that he was developing a film adaptation of the 1960s TV series.
Since the announcement of the Rob Zombie Munsters movie, Zombie has overtime revealed details about the Munsters cast. There’s Jeff Daniel Phillips (playing Herman Munster), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lil Munster), Catherine Schell (Zoya Krupp), Dan Roebuck (Grandpa Munster), Jorge Garcia (Floop), Sylvester McCoy (Igor), and Richard Brake (Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang). There are also rumors that Cassandra Peterson (known for iconic role as Elvira) may be involved in the film as well, but those rumors have not been confirmed at this time.
There is no official release date for the Rob zombie Munsters movie yet, but upon its release, it is expected to arrive in theatres and streaming on Peacock simultaneously.
