Plot

After losing their jobs at Columbia University, a trio of misfit parapsychologistsPeter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Egon Spengler — establish their own paranormal exterminator service, "Ghostbusters." The business, operating out of an abandoned fire station, gets off to a slow start, but just as they run out of money, the Ghostbusters are contacted by the upscale Sedgewick Hotel to investigate a haunting. At the hotel, they successfully (albeit chaotically) capture their first ghost and deposit him into a "containment unit" of their own design located at the Ghostbusters office. .Paranormal activity appears to be on the rise in the city and business skyrockets for the Ghostbusters, who become local celebrities and hire a fourth member, Winston Zeddemore.^ Paranormal Activity Ghostbusters in Ohio A look at the Central Ohio Paranormal Society and what their organization does.

.The Ghostbusters are hired by a woman named Dana Barrett, whose apartment at 55 Central Park West is haunted by a demonic spirit called Zuul, a demigod worshiped in 6000 BC as a servant to Gozer the Gozerian, a Sumerian shape-shifting god.^ (Central Park West - Dana's Apartment Building) (Shot of one of the stone demon dogs on the roof.

Louis is also discovered to be possessed by a similar demon called Vinz Clortho, "The Keymaster". Both demons speak of the coming of the destructive god Gozer, and the Ghostbusters decide it would be prudent to keep the two separated from each other.^ Dana: (reading) Zuul was the minion of Gozer.

Development

The concept was inspired by Aykroyd's own fascination with the paranormal and it was conceived as a vehicle for himself and friend John Belushi, fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus.[5] The original story, as written by Aykroyd, was very different from what was eventually filmed. .In that early version, a group of Ghostbusters travelled through time, space and other dimensions taking on huge ghosts (of which the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was just one of many).^ Man: I'll take the next one.

[7] .At Reitman's suggestion, the story was given a major overhaul, eventually evolving into the final screenplay which Aykroyd and Ramis hammered out over the course of three weeks in a Martha's Vineyard bomb shelter in May-June 1982.

He obviously (and wisely) regards Dr. Peter Venkman as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop fully his patented comic character".[23] Pauline Kael had problems with the chemistry between the three lead actors: "Murray is the film's comic mechanism ... But nobody else has much in the way of material, and since there's almost no give-and-take among the three men, Murray's lines fall on dead air".[24] In her review for The New York Times, Janet Maslin wrote, "Its jokes, characters and story line are as wispy as the ghosts themselves, and a good deal less substantial".[25]

Legacy

.The film spawned a franchise of related sequels, animated television series, toys, computer and video games, and other merchandise.^ Mattel will also create characters and ghosts from the classic animated series, "The Real Ghostbusters," to go along with the classic "Ghostbusters" film.

The narrative is written in the present tense, and the novel contains a behind-the-scenes section (profiling the major cast and crew members), and also the movie's complete end credits. A second novelization, written by Richard Mueller, was released in 1985. It was 65 pages longer at 256 pages, and had the extended subtitle The Supernatural Spectacular.

Marvel UK published a magazine-sized comic for 193 issues and four annuals starting on March 28, 1988. NOW Comics began their own series in August 1988. The series ran for two volumes and two specials. The first volume ran for 28 issues.
In 1987 Harvey Comics sued Columbia Pictures for $50 million, claiming that the Ghostbusters logo used in the film was too reminiscent of Fatso from the Casper the Friendly Ghost series. The court ruled in Columbia's favor,[34] due to Harvey's failure to renew the copyrights on early Casper stories and the "limited ways to draw a figure of a cartoon ghost."

Music

The film score was composed by Elmer Bernstein, and is notable for its use of ondes martenot (a staple of Bernstein's 1980s work) and also the Yamaha DX-7 synthesizer. Orchestrators contributing to the film were Peter Bernstein, David Spear and Patrick Russ.
The film's theme song, "Ghostbusters", written and performed by Ray Parker, Jr., sparked the catchphrases "Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!" and ."I ain't 'fraid of no ghost(s)". The song was a huge hit, staying #1 for three weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and #1 for two weeks on the Black Singles chart.^ It's just like the original "No Ghosts" logo, but in the new one the ghost in the red circle is holding up two fingers.

In autumn 1984 Huey Lewis sued Ray Parker, Jr. for plagiarism, claiming that Parker stole the melody from his 1983 song "I Want A New Drug". Lewis had been approached to compose the main theme song for the movie, but he declined due to his work on the soundtrack for Back to the Future. The two musicians settled out of court. It was reported in 2001 that Lewis allegedly breached an agreement not to mention the original suit, doing so on VH1's Behind the Music.[35]
