Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There aren't many funny, pre-Pufnstuf era monster movies suitable for the family, until one remembers the Munsters, who beyond their two-season television stint, made two feature films, albeit fifteen years apart. Both filmed in Technicolor, the vibrance of the Munsters' spooky lifestyle is most apparent in Munsters, Go Home (1966), far superior to the cornier Munsters' Revenge. A true '60s relic, Munsters, Go Home begins when Herman's deceased relative bestows him with Lord status, necessitating the Munsters' trip to England to claim his title. There, he meets other Munsters, Lady Effigy and Freddie Munster, whose jealousy results in frightening antics that only thrill Herman, Grandpa, Lily, Eddie, and Marilyn (with Pat Priest replaced by Debbie Watson). As the plot thickens, Herman faces other threats to the family honor with his classic innocent bravado. In Munsters' Revenge, a wax museum criminal circuit sends Munsters' imposters out to commit crimes, so it's up to the real family to solve the mystery. Different Eddies and Marilyns slightly spoil the family reunion's ambience, though ample physical comedy--for example when Herman's bee sting causes him to destroy the police precinct where he's being held as a criminal suspect--makes the film authentic to its original characters. Moreover, watching this double feature is an inspiring reminder of what props used to look like, like George Barris's Munster Koach, not to mention those that grace the entire Munster Mansion. --Trinie Dalton

Product Description

America's first family of fright lives on in The Munsters: Two-Movie Fright Fest! Following their wildly popular TV series, original cast members Fred Gwynne (Herman Munster), Yvonne De Carlo (Lily Munster), and Al Lewis (Grandpa) are reunited in two hilarious movies as you've never seen them before - in color! Munster, Go Home!: The laughs begin when Herman moves the family to an English estate he inherited. The Munsters' Revenge: Dr. Diablo (Sid Caesar) concocts a plan to create robot "Munsters" to pull off a series of art heists.

5.0 out of 5 stars ASTOUNDING!!!! September 30, 2006
Format:DVD
Ok... I know what you're thinking... "Why should I buy these two Munster movies on DVD AGAIN?" Well, despite the fact that the packaging is stupid and ugly. Despite the fact that there are NO bonus extras of any kind. Despite the fact that there aren't even any trailers or chapter stops. It doesn't matter. These new digital transfers make seeing "Munster, Go Home" and "The Munsters Revenge" an ENTIRELY new viewing experience.

I've loved "The Munsters" since it's CBS premiere in 1964. I have every episode on 16mm as well as on DVD. I even have a 16mm print of "Munster, Go Home" in IB Technicolor! NOTHING compares to Universal's crisp, new transfer! Watching the film in in its widescreen 16x9 theatrical aspect ratio was cool enough. But the colors! WOW! Herman is REALLY GREEN. Eddie's costume is a deep PURPLE. Lily's cheeks are BLUE. The clarity. The focus. Awesome! Even the sound is crisp and clear. When compared side-by-side to the earlier Good Times DVD, the visual difference is shocking. The Good Times transfer is muddy, contasty and just plain crumby by comparison. The only SLIGHT drawback is the trade-off in aspect ratios. The Munsters series and "Munster, Go Home" was shot in 35mm 1.33::1 aspect ratio. Basically the same as what you see on TV. In 1966, the film would have been shown in theaters cropped at the top and bottom to approximate a widescreen or "cinematic" look. In other words, "Munster, Go Home" would have been shot in a 4x5 or "Flat" aspect ratio but was designed to be cropped for movie theaters. This is the aspect ratio Universal has chosen for this transfer. The Good Times DVD preserves the full frame, so you do get more picture information on the top and bottom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set January 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD package is a two movie set that gives us the final bow of the original cast of the Munsters. In the first film "Munsters Go Home", we see a movie that was released right after the final season of the original show. Although it has a few funny scenes, it is not even close to as funny as the original TV series. But the whole cast is there except for Pat Priest who played Marilyn in the TV series.

The second movie was made a number of years later. It is the last time we get to see Fred Gwynn play Herman Munster. Although the movie itself is not very funny, it is nice to see the original Herman, Lily, and Grampa. It's obvious that all of the original cast has gotten older, particuarly Lily. But all in all, it's a nice way to finish the TV set if you are a true Munsters fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Munsters' Movie Never Looked Better! September 28, 2006
By ELC
Format:DVD
Although we get a bare-bones treatment here without commentaries from such surviving cast members as Butch Patrick or Yvonne DeCarlo, or even a promotional trailer, nevertheless "Munster Go Home!" looks great. I have the old "GoodTimes" release on DVD, but this comes from Universal and, unlike the GoodTimes release, this one is presented in widescreen and looks sharp and crisp. "Munster Go Home!" is the best of the lot as "The Munsters' Revenge," as most fans know, wasn't up to par. Still, that TV movie looks great too. I am taking one star away because of the lack of extras but Munster aficionados will want to purchase this DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars I CAN'T THINK OF A TITLE. DARN! DARN! DARN! August 28, 2006
Format:DVD
Well, I have read the other reviews boasting of picture quality, and purchased my own copy. My copy of the GOODTIME version of MUNSTER, GO HOME! was actually very good. But this new release is roughly a 30-35% improvement over the GOODTIME release. However the lack of scene selection is somewhat annoying. I never purchased the original dvd of MUNSTERS' REVENGE so I can't compare dvds to that, but I have a recorded from cable VHS copy that I thought looked ok. But when compared to this, it looks downright dreadful. Munsters' Revenge may not be as good a movie as Munster,Go Home.But niether one comes close to the TV Series. I have a theory as to why Pat Priest was not included in the Munster, Go Home cast. First of all had Pat been in the movie, they would have to recast Robert Pine's role because Robert Pine (Roger Morseby) would not have been a convincing suitor for Pat Priest. Also when Squire Morseby and his wife (Roger's Parents) expressed their intolerance for the Munsters, Pat Priest's Marilyn would have stood her ground better and convinced the Squire and his wife that the Colonial Munsters were nothing like their British counterparts. Therefore diminishing the intended subplot of Marilyn and Roger at odds with each other. Money was paid, locations rented, and a cast ready to go. This movie was rushed into production. Had they been able to wait a little longer we probably would have had a better Munster's movie that included Pat Priest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Re Release October 2, 2006
Format:DVD
I have both movies Munsters, Go Home (1966)(full screen) and Munsters' Revenge on DVD. but Munsters Go Home the new release is in 1:85 widescreen and both movies look much better on the new Munsters - Two Movie Fright Fest.
It was well worth buying this movie collection! Also the book Munsters: A Trip Down Mockingbird Lane came out Sunday Oct 1, 2006. It is a Munster fan must have.
