I grew up watching Ghostbusters. That used to be my mine and my sisters favorite movie. We would watch it over and over again. Ghostbusters is about a group of guys who hunt ghosts and other spooky things or spooky creatures. The movie takes place in Manhattan. The group of friends are called the "Ghostbusters". It's a funny movie. It will keep you laughing through the whole movie. Some parts were scary, but I'm sure that's because I was a child back when I watched it. The part I remember most of the movie is the theme song. Ghostbusters is a good movie. When you get a chance, you should watch it. You'll enjoy it.
