This is what a comedy movie should be about! Four "shysters" that pawn themselves off as "experienced" experts in battling psychic phenomena, defeat a "real" ghost through hair-brained luck and nuclear technology. They set up an agency that makes house calls to rid people of any supernatural baddies that may be lurking in their homes.

Eventually, the evil starts to build in the top of an old creepy looking apartment building.

Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, and Dan Ackroyd are hilarious! Bill Murray is passable and Sigourney Weaver is hot!

Up until now, Ghostbusters had topped the list of movies I was ashamed that I had not seen. But thankfully I am ashamed no more, because I saw Ghostbusters and its awesome. Some may think 100% is a little much, but you watch it and say it doesn't deserve it. Ghostbusters was definitely one of the best movies to come out of the eighties and probably one of the most influential movies of all time, at least in terms of in-jokes in other things. It has all the elements of a great supernatural comedy. …

Directed by Ivan Reitman of Meatballs Starring Dr. Spengler (Harold Ramis) Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) Co-starring Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) is about four parapsychologists trying to rid New York of ... you guessed it, ghosts.
