Ghostbusters (1984)

1984 Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comedy

User Score: 75/100


Three unemployed parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.

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? Still a lot of fun, and an obvious model for sci-fi comedies such as Men in Black.
