Synopsis:
When kooky, spooky college profs Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) lose their university jobs, they decide to go freelance, de-haunting New York City with a new ghost removal service. As soon as they open their doors, their first order of business becomes saving beautiful cellist Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) and nerdy Louis Tully (Rick Moranis), who've inadvertently opened the gates of hell...right in their own apartment building!

Family classic - Ghostbusters review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
08/07/2009

One of those films from my childhood that still provokes fond memories. Ghostbusters remains a funny, thrilling romp through New York's supernatural wildlife. Having bought this blu ray on release the amount of grain is very surprising, the film does look good overall but I still think more could have been done to the print. Alot of the extras relate to the video game but amongst the menus are some vintage insights into the making of and a good commentary track.

Absolutely dire - Ghostbusters review by LA

Spoiler Alert
03/01/2022

This has miserably failed the test of time. Zero plot even by the standards of the genre at the time and extremely uncomfortable to watch the Bill Murray character’s sexual predation and harassment of the leading female.

Wouldn’t and couldn’t be made now and we should all be grateful for that.
