After losing their academic posts at a prestigious college, a team of parapsychologists creates a business exterminating ghouls, hobgoblins and supernatural pests -- and are soon hired by a cellist to purge her digs of a demon.
This movie is very funny. And crazy... what an imagination, what a weird ending... if you are in search of any scientific theory, forget it, this is absolutely unrealistic. Never the less, between the three Ghostbusters and Sigourney Weaver, they are so into the story that you wind up believing it. Isn't that the magic of cinema. The special effect are a little outdated, but it is still fun to watch after 30 years.
