Okay, seriously, “who ARE you gonna call?”

Ghostbusters Flight Suit 10 Ridiculously Fun Horror Films For Halloween

We assume nearly everyone has seen director Ivan Reitman’s 1984 classic Ghostbusters, at lest once, but as a quick refresher:

Three unemployed parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.

This film so thoroughly stands the test of time that you will find yourself laughing out loud while watching the very dated original trailer below:

Ghostbusters was so immensely popular that it inspired an entire multi-media franchise that includes: video games, action figures, a television series, comic-books, novelizations, theme park attractions and more; die-hard fans sit on pins and needles anxiously anticipating any and every bit of news on…

This is perhaps the most purely comedic film on our list. Ghostbusters is side-splittingly funny, sweet, and unique. Who can forget the giant Stay Puff Marshmallow Man? Though it is in some ways a quintessentially 1980s film, its story and humor remains timeless. The film is almost universally beloved, and is consistently referred to in various forms of pop-culture, including other movies, perhaps the most notable, recent reference to Ghostbusters in another film takes place in item #5 on our list.

  1. Young Frankenstein was a good film and so was Zombieland. The others were complete crap.

    As for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, yes, it wasn’t a brilliant film, but as far as musicals go, it was one that I didn’t find stupid and boring as hell. You want to talk about crappy films? How about Grease? Grease was awful and as most musicals go the songs were idiotic.

    I for one cannot understand the fascination with Grease, yet a film like Rocky Horror gets put through the wringer. Then again, most people are followers and will simply say how they don’t like something because it’s the in thing to do.

    I for one, think for myself, and I enjoyed the flick for what it was: A silly take on classic horror films. But let’s look at it this way, if the Rocky Horror Picture Show was so terrible, then why is it still discussed today?

    • The article is titled “10 Ridiculously Fun ‘Horror’ Films For Halloween.” Why the heck would you watch Grease on Halloween?!

      RHPS is a cult classic. It is beloved by fans. You’re not going to meet anyone here who hates it, (obviously, since it made the list).

      Plus, saying you hate musicals doesn’t make a good argument on why people should love *your* favorite musicals. It’s essentially admitting that you know nothing about the genre. It’s a wonder you don’t think Grease 2 is worse than Grease. Momma Mia was also hard to sit through. So was Across the Universe.

  3. This is a great list! Thanks!
