The review of this Movie prepared by Estefan Ellison

This film centers around three men who exterminate ghosts, goblins and other supernatural beings. Slimer and the Staypuff Marshmallow Man are the two most noticeable creatures here. The effects may be wacky, but they're rather fun to watch. There are two more sequels to this, and it also inspired an animated TV series. So for fun that's out of this world, who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!
The review of this Movie prepared by Teddy

Three unemployed professors of parapsychology team up and establish a ghost removal service based in an old firehouse. They handle several small jobs just fine, and then pretty Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) hires them to exterminate her haunted New York City apartment. The task turns out to be much bigger than anyone expected, with Dana getting possessed by Zuul, the Gatekeeper, and our heroes having to call out the City and their big guns. You'll never look at a Stay-Puft marshmallow man the same way again. Between Bill Murray's sarcastic deadpan and its creditable special effects, this delightful movie was a smash hit in 1984, raking in $220 million domestically on its first run.
