30th Anniversary: Ghostbusters

Continuing our retrospective episodes on classic horror and supernatural films for Halloween season we rewatched and studied up on Ghostbusters to provide our listeners with some deeper insights into this transgenerational cult classic. Throughout this episode we examine the development of Ghostbusters and the journey Dan Aykroyd went through in bringing this to the screen. We also discuss the future of ghostbusters as a franchise, the animated series, some trivia such as the ironic twist of the voice of Venkman in the cartoon being the same guy who voiced Garfield. We also touch upon the loss of Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd’s obsessions, Bill Murray’s refusal to return to the series and what went wrong with Ghostbusters 2.
