A Ghostbusters 30th anniversary tribute print available on Etsy?

IT MUST BE MINE.

I’m not gonna put up a picture, because the guy’s trying to sell ‘em – but I know all of those quotes, and I can tell you when in the movie that they happened, and Ghostbusters is just you know Ghostbusters so I don’t even need a reason.

God only knows where I’m going to put it, though.

“Sorry, Venkman. I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.”

This Ghostbusters clip is, in its way, an excellent example of: a, why it’s hard to do cosmic horror properly in movies; and b, why horror leans on comedy quite a bit.

Without going too deep into the weeds; the problem here is that Spengler obviously should feel terrified – he’s facing a cosmic horror that’s attempting to destroy the planet – but it’s hard to show something like that on the screen and not make it look clunky.  In a weird sort of way, making it funny can at least help making it clear that what you’re seeing is transgressive, or something like that.  I don’t know.  All I know is that there are at least three bits in this clip that I can quote from memory…

‘Ghostbusters.’

Ghostbusters, Ray Parker, Jr.

There were people who did not like this movie, by the way.

Pity them.
