A much-loved 80s film, this version of Ghostbusters brings the sci-fi comedy up to date turning the four-man ghostbusting team into a group of feisty, funny, supernatural loving women. High-school science pals Erin and Abby are thrown together again when their book on the supernatural is discovered by managers of a haunted house. Realising this is their chance to prove to the world ghosts really exist they set up a ghostbusting service with the help of another science-mad (with emphasis on the mad) colleague Holtzman and Patty, a New York savvy subway attendant who leads them to their first catch. With cameo appearances from original cast members and 80s styled special effects, this is an affectionate nod to the past as well as a cleverly written, female-led action adventure for a new generation of ghostbusting fans.
