If there’s something strange –
in your neighbourhood …

Paranormal activities are everyday business for the three parapsychologists Venkman, Stantz and Spengler. After getting kicked out from university they start their own ghost extinction service in an old firehouse building. That whole plan becomes a huge success quite quickly. Armed with all kinds of high-tech equipment they start ridding the city of New York from all kinds of demons, unfriendly spirits and ghosties.

This turns out to be a good business plan but soon the media spotlight shifts to the Ghostbusters team itself. Will they be blamed for all the paranormal things that are going on? Or can they finally save the city from a huge uprising danger?

Part of the sheer joy of this movie – aside from the comic timing of Bill Murray – is the cartoonish crapness of its apparitions and their placid acceptance by the Ghostbusters team. (Times)
