31 Days of Horror Day 2: Ghostbusters


I swear not all of my picks will be mid-to-late 80s horror comedy.  But it’s still early in October.  It’s still a little warm outside.  We have to ease into Halloween season.

Like The Burbs, this is another film from that era that holds up remarkably well.  It’s still really funny, and there are some great looking ghosts (one of my personal favorites has always been the cab driver who immediately starts swerving into traffic.  Although, to be perfectly honest, that cabbie scared the crap out of me as a kid).

There’s a reason this is still considered a classic.  So kick back with some donuts…

…recite Vinz Clortho’s monologue about Gozer the Traveler from memory…


…and have a great time.

While you’re at it, throw on Ghostbusters II.  It’s not nearly as good as the first, but it’s still a lot of fun.  Plus, it has Vigo the Carpathian, whom I recently defeated in battle.
