Brief Synopsis: "After losing their academic posts at a prestigious university, a team of parapsychologists goes into business as proton-pack-toting "ghostbusters" who exterminate ghouls, hobgoblins and supernatural pests of all stripes. An ad campaign pays off when a knockout cellist hires the squad to purge her swanky digs of demons that appear to be living in her refrigerator."

Sober Film Critic James Brown97 - If there's somethin' strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters! This classic blockbuster stands as one of the funniest, zaniest films to have ever entered a multiplex. Some thirty years later, it remains a beloved piece of cinematic history.

Dan O'Neill85 - Ghostbusters is the classic that I always imagined it being even when I was still running around in my little Spider-Man undies. Itís funny, original, exciting, and perfectly-delivered by the likes of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and many many others.
