Suit up for classic comedy! 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 houses in 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!
Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis wrote the script, but Bill Murray gets all the best lines and moments in this 1984 comedy directed by Ivan Reitman (Meatballs). The three comics, plus Ernie Hudson, play the New York City-based team that provides supernatural pest control, and Sigourney Weaver is the love interest possessed by an ancient demon. Reitman and company are full of original ideas about hobgoblins--who knew they could "slime" people with green plasma goo?--but hovering above the plot is Murray's patented ironic view of all the action. Still a lot of fun, and an obvious model for sci-fi comedies such as Men in Black. --Tom Keogh

When I saw this Mastered in 4k and the price was only $7.99 I decide to buy it.
The on line reviews about the quality of the picture for such an old movie were great.
I wasn't disappointed;the picture quality on a HD lcd tv was superb.
The movie effects were wonderful.
Seeing a young Sigourney Weaver along with Bill Murray,the late Harold Ramis,Dan Akroyd and Rick Moranis rounding out this great cast.
I even loved the music;a catchy tune if there ever was one.
It's a movie that can and will be watched again.
With a PG rating the whole family can watch this one.
Now to get Ghostbusters II to add to my movie collection when the price drops a little.
After getting the boot from the university, Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler go to business for themselves. After all, they are "on the threshold of establishing the indispensable defense science of the decade--professional paranormal investigation and elimination."
They get their first experience in using their unlicensed nuclear accelerators and other hi-tech equipment at the Sedgwick Hotel, where they hunt down a Class 5 full-roaming vapour. Yes, this is the gluttonous green ghost whose initial encounter with Venkman yields the memorable line from the latter: "He slimed me." Venkman laters gets his own back by saying, "Never slime a guy with a positron glider."
Enter Dana Barrett, whose refrigerator contains something more extraordinary than month-old yogurt that's turned into a science project. "You don't generally see that kind of behaviour in a major appliance," cracks Venkman, who taken to her, later allows a Freudian slip to his colleagues, "I'll take Ms. Barrett back to her apartment and check her out." As expected, nothing's there, but the scene contains a brief exchange I still remember. Dana: "That's the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there." Venkman: "What a crime!"
Yes, the snappy dialogue is what really carries this movie, which once again reteams director Ivan Reitman with Bill Murray--q.v.Read more ›
