We’ve had months of build-up, but it’s time Rob Zombie‘s Munster’s movies to Netflix to make a profit. As such, the director has revealed that his reboot film for the franchise will arrive this September. 27.

Zombie revealed the news over the weekend with a post saying: “Why is this vampire passing out? Because in exactly one month THE PATTERNS premieres on @netflix. #robzombie #themunsters.” The post went live on August 27th, which would mean a September 27th launch via Netflix.

Zombie hasn’t stopped with the promo, followed by another movie screenshot tease that says, “Why is this monster singing? Because THE PATTERNS premieres on @netflix in September. What better way to welcome in the Halloween season? #robzombie #themunsters.”

Back in March was the film given a PG rating. While Zombie has been known for directing fairly violent films, the director has long been a fan of the original series and was keen to stick close to the family-friendly feel of the ’60s series.

In June was first teaser for the film arrived, starting in the black and white style of the original series, before revealing each of the central characters in color at the end.

The director told EW, “I knew that if I went in and demanded ‘This movie will be in black and white or forget it!’ we didn’t want to talk about that Munster’s right now, because it would never have happened. I guarantee-fucking-tee it. But what I did was I made the colors kind of hyperreal. I noticed that when the actors were in their makeup and they were just walking around having lunch or whatever, they looked like cartoon characters come to life. They were just so insanely colorful. I thought I should enlighten the film in the same way. It really felt like a live action cartoon at all times, which was really exciting.”

A full trailer then followed in mid-July, which can be seen here.

So mark your calendar and make the most of it through the spooky month of October…. Rob Zombie’s Munster’s coming to Netflix in September. 27.
