Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021)


“Hey remember that summer, when we all died under a table?” – Trevor

Number of Times Seen – 1 (4 Jan 2022)

Brief Synopsis – After inheriting a farm in Oklahoma from her father, a woman and her two teenage kids move there to find out that this is something strange going on in that area.

My Take on it – This is a film that I’ve been anticipating for quite a while, yet had no idea what to expect.

I was somehow able to stay away from spoilers and went in without knowing anything about it.

The story in some ways feels like a reboot of the original Ghostbusters (1984) and does a nice job connecting the story and characters to that film from 38 year ago.

Unfortunately, that is also one of this film’s flaws; it feels too much like a rehash than something new.

The special effects are wondrous and definitely enhance the way that these characters fight the ghosts who have been released.

This is definitely a movie tho that the viewer needs to go in familiar with the original story in order to fully appreciate everything that transpires here since it never seems like a stand alone story due to how heavily the plot relies on things from the past films in the franchise.

Was nice seeing this movie, but it wasn’t as amazing as I would have liked it to be which is a shame.

Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Finn Wolfhard did not know he was auditioning for Ghostbusters as the audition sides were purposefully kept to be generic and vague as the movie was being developed under secrecy. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
