‘Ghostbusters’ Movie Summary

In 1984’s Ghostbusters, Columbia University professors Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler study parapsychology—otherwise known as bullshit pseudoscience. You know, like astrology, creation science, chiropractors, homeopathy, and Scientology. Fortunately, one of America’s finest universities recognizes the ridiculousness of this area of study, and it defunds their grant.

They don’t let this momentary unemployed slow down their passion for ghosts. They arm themselves with some nuclear proton guns, and start a small business called Ghostbusters. If you need someone to trap spooky ghouls, ghosts, poltergeists, and specters, they men are the fellas to call; they ain’t afraid.

Their first customer is the panty wearing Alien killer herself; Ripley…I mean Dana Barrett. The Temple of the Dog, Zuul, possesses her refrigerator, and looks to corrupt her quirky neighbor, Louis. Venkman takes an interest in the permed out cellist. He wants to make his own type of white noise with her; if you know what I mean.

Business continues to be slow until they get a call from an effeminate hotel manager and encounter a slimer. Slimer is kind of like Rosi O’Donnell. It’s fat, disgusting, eats and drinks anything in sight and leaves an ectoplasmic residue in its wake. They are able to capture this ghost using their proton guns and ghost trap.
