Now is the season of evil....,
This review is from: Ghostbusters 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
Five years after the events of Gozer, the Ghostbusters have been plagued by lawsuits and court orders, and their once-lucrative business is bankrupt.
However, when Dana begins to have ghost problems again, the boys come out of retirement only to be promptly arrested.
The Ghostbusters discover that New York is once again headed for supernatural doom, with a river of ectoplasmic slime bubbling beneath the city and an ancient sorcerer attempting to possess Dana's baby and be born again.
Can the Ghostbusters quash the negative emotions feeding the otherworldly threat and stop the world from being slimed?......
So Ghostbusters 2 works, but there are lots of similarities to this and the first one.
Dana gets in trouble again, and thats what brings the boys together.
There's a weird guy coming on to Dana, who eventually gets possessed.
Stantz once again prove to be the bridge between the living and the paranormal.
And of course, the Ghostbusters cause something huge to walk through the streets of New York again.
But who cares when the first one was so great? why not just rehash the first movie and instead of putting the spook in a fridge, put it in a painting? The cast as always are fantastic, and ramis in this movie is more of the one liner spouter than the serious Egon we had in the first one. Hudson gets a little short changed in this as he really doesn't get much to do.
The last fifteen minutes ruins the film a little though with all the good will and singing, and then after all the possession and trouble with stealing Danas baby, Vigo just walks out of the painting intact and picks up the baby.
But you can forgive the films short comings, because the element of nostalgia is still there,and it's just good to see the cast back together again.
