1984 – Ghostbusters

Who you gonna call? Probably Bill Murray and his friends. Ghostbusters came out and suddenly everyone wasn’t afraid of ghosts anymore. A comedy following scientists who believe they know how to trap ghosts is now one of the most beloved films of all time.

Egon, Ray, Winston and Peter are all friends who work towards their dreams of owning their own ghostbusting company. When they do manage to catch enough ghosts, they realize that there is something darker rising to power.

A demon is coming, trying to open the gates to their world to destroy mankind. Of course, it happens when Peter is trying to go on a date with his lady love in the movie, Dana. At the end of the day, Peter and Dana do finally get that date — but first, they have to rescue Dana from being possessed and the Ghostbusters fight off the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

The movie was so well received that it got a sequel as well as a reboot in the 21st century. These characters and their ghostbusting ways have entertained generations of kids and we all consistently love to see them taking on ghosts while that catchy theme song plays.
