Storyline

The nightmare is always the same: dirty brown hat, striped sweater, and a glove of razors. Neil is having a lot of trouble sleeping lately, and the terrors are getting worse. Fortunately, help soon arrives in the the form of an old friend, Ed Spengler--nephew of Ghostbuster great Egon Spengler. With the help of their friend Eugene, Ed and Neil establish a Denver division of the Ghostbusters. Before long business is booming, but eventually they know they will have to face off against Freddy Krueger himself. Written by Anonymous

A very cool mix of characters
17 June 2007 | by darksorcererSee all my reviews

I got a copy of this via my band mates. Being a fan of both ghostbusters and All the nightmare on elm street movies/books and TV series/shows i was very surprised at my reaction upon watching this film.

I believe the film (though short) did justice to some of the key elements that are across both movie series: humour...darkness...comedy aspects.. bad props etc.

Some people might complain that it doesn't have the "true freddy" Robert Englund, those people should see it for what it is, A small movie constructed for the fans of both films and a decent job was done of it.

my only small issue was the lighting, it seemed that indoors (non freddy scenes) were poor lighted and the outdoor initial ghostbuster scene was done in direct sunlight, making the light crap also.

Overall well done...a movie for the fans of Freddy and Ghostbusters.
