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

One of the best out there
17 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

This "amatuer" tribute to Ghostbusters, and A Nightmare On Elm Street, is possibly the best fan film I've ever seen. It's special effects are not only amazing considering the budget for this movie was probably smaller than Blair Witch's. The effects hold up as well as the original Ghostbusters films, and the attempt to re-create the stalking scenes of Freddy's films are dead on. The acting wasn't the best, but I doubt that any auditions were actually held for the movie. I personally can't wait for the sequel that's getting made now. If we can't have Ghostbusters 3 then we'll have to settle for these fan films, but if this is settling, I'd say I'm quite comfortable.
