Violence & Gore

  • A Scene where two of the Ghostbusters get into a Brief Fight

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Due to the loud and violent noises, as well as quite grotesque ghosts first appearing attached to electrical chairs, the entire courtroom ghostbusting scene could be scary and/or frightening to some viewers.
  • After when the main Antagonist Vego Gets Defeated for the First time and before he retreats back into his Super Natural Painting He Drops Dana's Baby, fortunately one of the Ghostbusters manages to catch him, but for Mothers and Mothers to be that still could be scary.
