Storyline

Paranormal researcher Abby Yates and physicist Erin Gilbert are trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan, Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann for help.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Mindy Kaling mentioned the idea of an all-female remake of Ghostbusters (1984) in her 2011 book "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)." She is not, however, involved with the making of this film. See more »

Goofs

When the possessed Abby is about to turn her head backwards, a scarf is visible "At the back of the neck" . When she gets away from the window, the scarf is not visible, probably hinting out that the head turning was fake, and the scarf was used for hiding the state of the neck. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Tour Guide Garrett: The Aldridge Mansion is the only 19th century home in New York City preserved both inside and out. At the time of its construction, it was one of the most elegant homes in existence featuring every luxury including a face bidet and an anti-Irish security fence.

They Are Already Making Another Ghostbusters
9 September 2019 | by faresrhyseSee all my reviews

And it is our fault.

It is my fault.

It is your fault.

This gender switch Ghostbusters was unfunny, gross and mostly forced. The bigger picture is the lack of originality and freshness. Hollywood has normalized the endless remakes and reboots, a world where everything is a franchise, but it should not be. It is about new experiences and not the staleness of the familiar. This one was distinctly angry and put women into a position of adequateness when in fat body suits, but we the audiences need to demand better.
