    Rob Zombie has been a stickler for detail while filming his big-screen adaption of the 1960s sitcom The Munsters, and it’s apparent how authentic the set is in a new walking tour conducted by the rocker-director himself.

    As previously reported, Zombie had the Munsters’ famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane mansion faithfully recreated on the film’s set in Budapest, Hungary, along with the surrounding homes in the movie’s suburban neighborhood.

    In a new video posted to his Instagram (see below), Zombie walks through the “neighborhood” on his way to 1313 Mockingbird Lane, with no one else on the set. Using either a Super 8 camera or a filter to give it a vintage look, the video looks like it’s straight out of the ’60s, and the set truly captures the vibe of the original TV show.


    “Walking to work. I think I’m a little early. The Mockingbird Lane gang must still be sleeping,” wrote Zombie in the Instagram post.

    Zombie’s Munsters movie doesn’t have an exact release date yet, but it is slated to premiere simultaneously in theaters and on the streaming service Peacock.

    The film stars Rob’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, as Lily Munster; Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster; and Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, with support roles played by Elvira, Jorge Garcia, Richard Brake, and others.

    It appears that Zombie will try to have filming wrapped up before he embarks on a co-headlining summer US tour with Mudvayne. The month-long outing, which features support from Static-X and Powerman 5000, kicks off July 20th in Maryland Heights, Missouri, with tickets available via Ticketmaster.
