Something strange in the neighborhood…..
Ghost stories have been around since the beginning of story telling. But sometimes the same old story gets old.
That’s where Ghostbusters (1984) comes in.
In New York City, four out of work college professors, whose focus was the occult, decide to use their skills to enter a new field: ghost busting. Using a former firehouse as their home base, Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Dr. Egon Spengler (the late Harold Ramis) and Winston Zeddmore (Ernie Hudson) sell their services to the living who are haunted by the dead. When they discover a portal to the other world that opens the door to the ultimate evil, they must work together to save the city.
This movie is the classic that it is for a reason. On top of the occult/horror, the cast contains four of the best comedic actors in the business. And the theme song is just very cool and very catchy. After 31 years, this movie is as fresh and funny as it was back in 1984. To illustrate the movie’s lasting legacy, I give you Hoobastank singing the movie’s theme song.
I recommend it.
