They ain't afraid of no ghost.

After losing their academic posts at a prestigious university, a team of parapsychologists goes into business as proton-pack-toting "ghostbusters" who exterminate ghouls, hobgoblins and supernatural pests of all stripes. An ad campaign pays off when a knockout cellist hires the squad to purge her swanky digs of demons that appear to be living in her refrigerator.

Ghostbusters - Die Geisterjäger

So ein Pech. Da haben die Parapsychologie-Professoren Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz und Egon Spengler endlich den Beweis für paranormale Aktivitäten in Form einer waschechten Geistererscheinung vor den Augen, da werden sie auch schon vom Campus der Uni geworfen. Zu unwichtig und kostenintensiv seien ihre Forschungen. Frisch in der Arbeitslosigkeit angekommen, aber mit dem Wissen um die Existenz übernatürlicher Phänomene und Geisterwesen angereichert beschließen sie aus der Not eine zukunftsweisende Idee umzusetzen: Sie gründen ein Geisterjäger-Unternehmen! Mit selbst entworfenem Equipment und mit einem alten Feuerwehrgebäude als Hauptquartier stellen sie sich den lästigen Bedrohungen aus der Zwischenwelt. Und auch wenn die braven Bürger von New York der ganzen Sache etwas skeptisch gegenüberstehen, werd sie bald merken, wie nötig ihre Stadt diese geisterjagenden Jungs hat ...
