The Munsters With Little Changed, And That's Okay

As for it being in color: "I knew that if I went in and demanded 'This movie's going to be in black and white or forget it!' we would not be talking about the Munsters right now because it would have never happened. I guaran-f—ing-tee it. But what I did do is I made the colors sort of hyper-real. I noticed when the actors were in their makeup, and they were just walking around, getting lunch or whatever, they looked like cartoon characters come to life. They were just so insanely colorful. I was like, I have to light the movie in the same fashion. It really seemed at all times like a live-action cartoon, which was really exciting."

I would have liked to see this in black and white, but whatever. Some have said that they think this looks too silly, and to them, I say, that's the point. I, for one, could not be more excited, especially since we know how we get to watch it now.
