Join us this week as we revisit and remember the excellent of Ghostbusters (1984) for its 30th Anniversary on episode 67 of the Monster Movie Podcast. The podcast takes a loving and hilarious look back at Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond Stanz and Dr. Egon Spengler as they are joined by Winston Zeddemore to save Dana Barrett (and, yes, Louis Tully) from the world conquering Gozer.

This episode also marks the return of co-host Thomas Mariani who first visited the show one year ago. Coincidence? We think not. Wha? C'mon, just play along here.

"I'm worried, Ray. It's getting crowded in there and all my data points to something big on the horizon." - Egon.

"What do you mean, big?" - Winston.

"Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. Based on this morning's sample, it would be a Twinkie... thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds." - Egon

"That's one big Twinkie." - Winston.

It is lines like this and the chemistry between the film's stars, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramos , that solidify the importance and impact of Ghostbusters. The film is known for instantly conquering the Summer of 1984 with its catchy (and later controversial) theme song, it's fun jovial attitude and its delightful scares and thrills. Sigourney Weaver is breathtaking as Dana Barrett instantly winning Venkman's heart - and the audiences' as well. And let's not forget Slimer, Gozer, the Terror Dogs and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Thomas and Doc relive every moment, every thrill as they celebrate the film's 30th anniversary. Join them in the excitement.
