Editorial Reviews

Herman discovers he's the new lord of Munster Hall in England. The family sails to Britain, where they receive a tepid welcome from Lady Effigy and Freddie Munster, who throws tantrums because he wasn't named Lord Munster. An on-board romance had blossomed between Marilyn and Roger, but on land Marilyn discovers Roger's family holds a longstanding grudge against the Munsters. Herman upholds the family honor in an auto race; he and Grandpa also unlock "the secret of Munster Hall."

I cannot recall a time in my life when I haven't been a fan of "The Munsters", television series that first ran for two seasons from 1964 to 1966. Only years later did I have the opportunity to see their feature length movie "Munster, Go Home" made directly after the second and sadly final season of the series in 1966. It is really a feature length continuation of all that was remarkable in the original series, outstanding makeup for all the characters who were based on the old Universal Studios classic monsters, the terrific comic chemistry between actors Fred Gwynne as Herman and Al Lewis as Grandpa and enough social commentary hidden in among the laughs to entertain adults as well as children. The only departure that the "Munster, Go Home", movie takes from the series is that for some inexplicable reason the powers that be saw it as a supposedly good move to recast the role of Marilyn, the Munster's "unfortunate" niece. The lovely Pat Priest had played Marilyn Munster for all but the first 13 episodes of the series (Three actresses ended up playing Marilyn during the run of the series and this movie), but the producers went for the younger Debbie Watson over the protests of the other Munster cast members. Apart from that however "Munster, Go Home", is a treat for fans of the series as we see our beloved family of spooks travel to England to claim a title and encounter many adventures along the way.

As the story opens we find Herman arriving back home after a hard day at the funeral Parlour to be greeted by wife Lily (Yvonne De Carlo), with a letter which states that Herman's great Uncle has died leaving him the sole beneficiary of his estate, Munster Hall in Shroudshire, England.

4.0 out of 5 stars Call me Lord June 3, 2002
By Ned
Format:DVD
In their first movie, Herman's uncle dies and bestows upon him lord of Munster Hall, which is in England. The whole family packs up, Herman, Lilly, Grandpa, Eddie, Marylyn, and head to England. The trip is on a cruise ship where Herman gets sea sick, Grandpa turns himself into a wolf and can't turn himself back, and Marylyn finds romance with a rival of the Munsters. Once they arrive in England, Lady Effigy and Freddie Munster, who throws a temper tantrum because he was not named Lord Munster, greets them. The greeting is in the form of a haunted house that make Herman and Lilly feel at home. Herman enters an auto race to uphold the family honor and he and Grandpa discover the secret of Munster Hall.
The quality of the DVD is good.
Herman is really Green!

5.0 out of 5 stars The wait is over for this Halloween treat! November 6, 1999
Format:DVD
When the home video release of this minor classic was issued by Good Times Video (for the first time ever) a few years ago, I was overjoyed -- that is, until I saw that it was recorded on inferior stock at slow speed! Well, weep no more, Munster fanatics! This DVD release by Good Times makes up for their earlier mistake. The picture and sound quality is superp -- and the source material is clean and crisp. Finally, "Munster, Go Home!" as I remember it -- in all of its Technicolor brilliance. At last, Herman is REALLY green -- the same color your friends will turn if they don't own one. By the way, I really don't understand the disclaimer at the beginning of the program. The print as seen on DVD is exactly the right aspect ratio. "Munster, Go Home!" was shot in 1.33::1 -- just like the series. The disclaimer leads the viewer to believe that the film has been "modified". Not true! Enjoy!

However, he is confronted by his cousin Fred Munster (Terry-Thomas) who'll stop at nothing to get the wealth for himself. Fun to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars At last, we got to see the Munster family in color October 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Entertaing and funny film for any fan of the short-running (two seasons on network TV), but popular comedy series. This shot-in-color film shows everyone the quality and sophistication of the make-up which was not fully revealed in the black and white television series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huh Huh Huh Huh! Herman says! June 10, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The old Munsters series is great and this movie is supreme! If you loved the old show then you got to get this one. This movie still contains the magic of the show and the times unlike the later movie made "Musters Revenge" which is also in my collection but not nearly as good as this one. If only there were more to get on the Munsters! I have the DVD version of Munster Go Home and the quality is excellent! Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great munster movie! April 22, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This movie is fantastic and I don't think a movie based on a television series could get any better than this although universal and goodtimes could put more effort to make a better realease and re-realease it. This film includes the original cast except for pat priest she is replaced by debbie watson. It also includes british comedians terry-thomas and hermione gingold. Overall this movie is great!

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Munster Go Home!' (Good Times) Running time: 96 minutes
Until here recently, I've never seen this vintage 1966 Munsters movie in it's entirety. Personally, I liked the Munster clan better - while viewed in vivid color. Quite refreshing. Read more
