Special effects artist Steve Johnson sculpted the gluttonous, slimy, green ghost then known as the "Onion Head ghost" on set due to the puppet's unpleasant smell. Murray avoided central roles in films until the 1988 Christmas comedy film Scrooged, [119] [120] which used the tagline that Murray was "back among the ghosts". You can get to know Trixie better in a string of other books in which she continues to fight for what she believes in, in the way only a somewhat mischievous but generally well-meaning 10-year-old can. The trio responds by establishing "Ghostbusters", a paranormal investigation and elimination service operating out of a disused firehouse.Their initial draft was completed when they left the Vineyard in mid-July 1983, and a third and near-final draft was ready by early August. According to the Survey, In a busy life no one has a time to find the professionals nearby themselves. For Gozer, Slavitza Jovan wore red contact lenses that caused her a great deal of pain, and she wore a harness to move around the set.

Ghostbusters: Novel is a novelization written by Larry Milne based on the first film owned by Columbia Pictures. Two lighter versions were made; a hollow one with surface details for wide shots, and a foam rubber version for action scenes. The ghosts in Ghostbusters have been interpreted as analogs for crime, homelessness, pollution, and faltering infrastructure and public services.Roger Grimsby, Larry King, Joe Franklin, and Casey Kasem make cameo appearances as themselves; Kasem in a voice-only role. The "Psychokinetic Energy meter" ("PKE meter") prop was built using an Iona SP-1 handheld shoe polisher as a base, to which lights and electronics were affixed. Dane said he "went home and got foam pieces and just threw a bunch of stuff together to get the look. Based on his own fascination with spirituality, Aykroyd conceived Ghostbusters as a project starring himself and John Belushi, in which they would venture through time and space battling supernatural threats. The necessity of the mayor outsourcing the ghost problem mirrors the real New York government ceding vast areas of real estate to corporations to stimulate renewal.

Ghost cats have taken over the property and the boys are given the challenge of getting rid of them. Following Ramis's death in 2014, Reitman determined the creative control shared by himself, Ramis, Aykroyd, and Murray was holding the franchise back and negotiated a deal to sell the rights to Columbia; he spent two weeks convincing Murray. The unexpected success of Ghostbusters meant Columbia did not have a comprehensive merchandising plan in place to fully capitalize on the film at the peak of its popularity. Author Nicole Matthews argued the need to present a film targeted at both adults and children leads to the central characters being infantilized and immature.

A Slimer-inspired limited-edition citrus-flavored Hi-C Ecto Cooler drink first released in 1987, was one of the more popular items, and did not cease production until 2001. Erin Gilbert started her undergraduate work in Physics and Quantum Mechanics at University of Michigan. Despite "bathroom humor and tacky sight gags", Peter Travers described Ghostbusters favorably as "irresistible nonsense", comparing it to the supernatural horror film The Exorcist, but with the comedy duo Abbott and Costello starring. Following Reitman's tweaks to the design, on-screen models of the "proton packs" were made from a fiberglass shell with an aluminum backplate bolted to a United States Army backpack frame.
