In 1984 a little movie about catching ghosts took the world by storm.
If there’s somethin’ strange, in your neighbourhood, who ya gonna call…GHOSTBUSTERS!
In 1984 a movie called Ghostbusters took the world by storm, grossing more than $295 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing film of the year.
We watched as scientists Peter Venkman, Raymond Stanz and Egon Spengler formed a ‘paranormal investigation’ company out of sheer desperation, when they are kicked out of Columbia University for their strange experiments and unpopular beliefs. That all happens shortly after their first encounter with a real ghost, the Librarian Ghost, who scared us to death for days, weeks and months afterwards.
They buy a rundown fire house and an old ambulance and soon they calls start coming in. They record a TV ad and are soon run off their feet catching ghosts all over New York. Dana Barrett soon enters their lives when a ghostly presence terrifies her by cooking eggs on her kitchen bench and roaring at her from inside her fridge. Thank goodness she calls the Ghostbusters. The boys soon develop a knack for catching Ghosts all around New York city, and even hire a fourth Ghostbuster by the name of Winston Zeddemore. But the real star of the show is Slimer... Not dieting then...
They do manage to save New York City from all the crazy and evil paranormal activity, made a second movie and we have our fingers and toes crossed for a third. We've tracked down the cast of the original Ghostbusters movie.
