Pleasantly surprised!!
18 July 2016 | by rawk-65057See all my reviews

My girlfriend and I decided to take a chance on this movie and were pleasantly surprised! Neither of us are into Ghostbusters and found it very interesting to learn the human side of how people can become so passionate about a movie. This documentary offers a glimpse into a world I will never be apart of.

The film follows several fans, some who seem to take their obsession too far and others who seem to have been saved by having something to give meaning to their lives. The stories move along at a quick pace and kept me entertained for the entire length.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone that is slightly curious about what sort of person would throw on a proton pack and dedicate their life Ghostbusters.
