  • We love this movie, we loved it as a kid, and we will forever love it! Has there ever been another supernatural comedy that comes close?!
  • It was groundbreaking special effects at the time and great comedic performances by Bill Murray and Dan Akyroyd at the height of their fame. And not forgetting Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver!
  • One of the most memorable movie theme tunes of all time (which even earned an Oscar nomination)!
  • Slimer, Gozer, Mr Stay Puft, the Keymaster, the Gatekeeper. Awesome!
When the University downsized the para-psychology department, Doctors Venkman (Bill Murray), Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Spengler (Harold Ramis) make the leap from scientist to Ghostbusters, investigators and exterminators of paranormal pests! The bewitching Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) discovers her refrigerator has become a portal into the spiritual dimension, our heroes then come face to face with an ancient evil force with plans to raise hell in Manhattan!

[after Ray orders her to re-locate]Are you a God?

[Ray looks at Peter, who nods]

No.Then... DIE!

[Lightning flies from her fingers, driving the Ghostbusters to the edge of the roof and almost off; people below scream]

Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES"!All right! This chick is TOAST!
