Rob Zombies The Munsters movie set photo shows Mockingbird Lane sign

Horror filmmaker Rob Zombie gives fans a look at The Munsters’ Mockingbird Lane with a new street sign from the upcoming film adaptation.

Horror filmmaker and musician, Rob Zombie, has taken to social media to show off the street sign for the fictional Mockingbird Lane. The street is otherwise known as the home of Monsters, Universal’s classic monster family TV series. Zombie is working hard on the first feature film adaptation of IP since the 1966s Munster, go home!, and the process involves rebuilding the famous Munsters home as well as the Mockingbird Heights neighborhood.

Previously described by Zombie as a project he has been hunting for 20 years, a feature film adaptation of Monsters is not exactly on everyone’s radar. The series, though a success in its day, eventually came to a brief but sweet end in 1966 after just two seasons. Nevertheless, the series continued to thrive in syndication as well as releasing numerous live-to-video or made-to-TV movies. There is certainly a dedicated fanbase to the series, though it is often overshadowed by the more familiar ones The Addams family, which had the same initial two-year maturity as Monsters, but who also returned several times over the years and enjoyed moderate success with a live-action film franchise that culminated in 1993.

To date, Zombie has been very good at keeping fans informed of progress Monsters, with several photos and glimpses behind the scenes of the film’s set delivered via his Instagram account. Movies on Monsters takes place in Hungary, and the entire Mockingbird Heights district has also been built there. The latest look at the film’s progress comes again from Zombies Instagram, where the filmmaker poses next to the Mockingbird Lane street sign:

With everything that has gone into getting Monsters from the ground up so far, it seems that Zombie is really going all the way up in this project. It makes sense given the filmmaker’s penchant for the original series. At the same time, though, diehard fans are off Monsters could be forgiven for being a little nervous about how Zombies’ adaptation will turn out. As a filmmaker, Zombies’ track record is less than impressive, and the fact that his films find their greatest appreciation as niche thrillers is charming enough, but not the kind of reception that a modern film adaptation of Monsters demands.

But just because Zombies’ previous offerings have not been everyone’s cup of tea, does not mean he is not able to make a hit adaptation of Monsters. It’s precisely because Monsters is not a niche horror concept that Zombie has a chance to take its filmmaking to a new place. There is no doubt that an IP as old as Monsters ice cream has a dedicated fanbase that only wants the best for it, and Zombie no doubt considers itself a part of this fanbase. Ultimately, this could be what takes the film to the next level, delivering something for both fans and Zombie that gives the franchise a new direction.
