Mockingbird Lane (2012)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
12.24.12

Mockingbird Lane (2012) This pilot is an excellent and entertaining "re-imagining" of The Munsters. It's more serious than the 60's series but definitely has a sense of humor to it. It begins with a group of Boy Scouts around a campfire, who are attacked by a ferocious looking werewolf. In the morning we see the survivors cramped together in a pickup truck, wondering where Eddie Munster is. The boy steps out of the forest, naked. Then we go to blonde Marilyn, who is looking for a new home for her Aunt and Uncle, Lily and Herman. She's not happy about the bright, sunshiny home the realtor shows her--but is very interested in the huge, dilapidated mansion across the street. This used to be the home of a notorious serial killer who killed homeless people. Now that's appealing to her.

Herman and his son Eddie arrive at the house first. It's explained they had to move because of the "Baby Bear" attack. Although Herman looked normal he's made out of different body parts--and cherishes his heart most of all because he believes that's where his feelings for his family are stored. When his heart begins to fail he freaks. That night two coffin shaped boxes are dropped off. From one emerge rats--which morph into Grandpa. Mist comes from the other coffin and turns into a naked Lily. Within minutes hundreds of spiders drop from the house and drape her in a web dress.

Herman and Lily don't want to tell Eddie that he's a werewolf. Herman's heart is also about to give out--and when he keels over, Grandpa puts in a new, mechanical one, but Herman wants the old one back. There's a tension between Herman and his father-in-law. But they come to an agreement about the heart in the end, though Marilyn's potential love interest is sacrificed for food and parts...

I loved this pilot. There are great special effects, high production value and it manages to update this series for the 21st Century. This is far better than the 90's Adam's Family movies.
