Movie Review: GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE

The Terror Dogs, aka Zuul the Gatekeeper and Vinz Clortho (sounds like a STAR WARS villain, dunnit?) the Keymaster are back, and once more they possess a pair of hapless humans, so that’s suitably lycanthropic for me to drop this review on this site instead of on one of our sisters sites, VAMPIRES.COM or DARKNESS.COM.

So how many times was GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE delayed? Four, by my count. It was one of the movies I was most looking forward to last year before it got yanked from the schedule, only topped by GODZILLA VS. KONG and tied with HALLOWEEN KILLS. I’d waited over a year-and-a-half to see it. So was it worth the wait? Damn right it was. The critics, both professional and poser, who say otherwise are just plain wrong. Wrong in every way. GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE is everything I wanted it to be. Well, almost.

I do have some minor—very minor—quibbles, but they have to do not with the content of the movie but with some stuff I would have liked to have seen added to it. SPOILER WARNINGS! The sheriff character seemed interesting enough that I would’ve liked to see him again, preferably encountering a ghost. The same with the other kids working at the burger joint. I would’ve enjoyed seeing a bit more of J.K. Simmons’s Ivo Shandor, too. My major minor gripe, though? Where was Slimer?!
