The Official Plot Details Are Leaked For The New Darker, THE MUNSTERS Television Show

New postby Shakelford, J. Rusty » Sun Dec 04, 2011 12:44 am

Bloody-Disgusting got their paws on some of the plot details from the reboot or remake of The Munsters TV series and I am anxious to hear what you Bidites think of the new "darker" tone we are being promised. According to the source the show will be a “strange hybrid of the popular comedy “Modern Family” and HBO’s “True Blood”. Although dark there will be a lot of heart and comedic elements.”

Plot Synopsis: Pilot Episode (directed by Bryan Singer): “will focus on 10-year-old Eddie Munster who is unaware that he’s a werewolf, and that his family is composed of terrifying creatures. The madness begins when a baby bear attacks a scouting trip, only it turns out that this “bear” is actually Eddie transformed into a werewolf. Eddie is unaware of his metamorphosis and it forces the family to move in order to protect the family secret. The coming of age story gets weirder as he fights against his family when he learns of a shocker: they’re a family of flesh-eaters!”

Details regarding the rest of the family; Lily Munster is said to have an eating disorder and only eats suicide victims. Grandpa is a 600-year-old shapeshifter and Marilyn is said to be adopted, after her mother tried to eat her as a baby. Interesting and weird, should be a mix that todays audiences might go for.

Ahhh I really don't know about this one.Some of these plot lines are definitely not doing the original show justice.But I guess will just have to see how the script and casting goes and how everything fits together.

I'd hate to be negative about this because I love all things Munsters but this sounds alittle ridiculous. Why not just keep their origins generally the same? Why would they all be eating humans when one is a werewolf, one is a vampire, one is a frankenstein monster and blah blah blah. I just hopt they don't mess this up as badly as it seems.

Does anyone else think this is just too damn dark for a show known for its cheesey humor? I mean "Lily only eats the flesh of SUICIDE VICTIMS?" Holy fuck, that is really fucking morbid. And they don't say shit about Herman, you know- the main protaganist/father figure of the bunch? Jesus, let's just make everything dark, gritty, and totally brutal compared to the original- its finally time to make the Adams Family corpse raping, incest prone, child murders.......cause its gritty, and that's cool now.

murderers^....my bad. But let's not forget that nothing is sacred anymore......and a HUGE part of me died upon realization of that. Just remember everything you loved about the Munsters when they were still golden...and realize all that you loved is about to get raped.....in quite an unfunny, horrorific way.
