Skip The Gnomes And Put Ghostbusters' Keymaster Dog In Your Garden

It’s a great time to be a Ghostbusters fan as the film’s 30th anniversary has triggered a renaissance in collectibles and other memorabilia connected to the movie. For example, if the thought of posing sculpted gnomes in your garden seems tacky, why not opt for this statue of the dog-like Keymaster monster that possesses Louis (Rick Moranis) instead?


A Slimer Pizza Cutter Is Who Ya Gonna Call When Delivery Arrives

There is no greater tragedy than trying to remove a single piece of pizza from a box only to have half the pizza’s toppings come with it because it wasn’t properly sliced. The solution is to either find a pizza place where the employees actually care, or buy yourself a pizza cutter and slice it up yourself. And if you’re a Ghostbusters fan (who isn’t?) this Slimer slicer seems about as good a choice as any.


Musicless Music Video For Ghostbusters Theme Song Gets Creepy Real Quick

Video: Oh boy. Looking back at the ’80s is almost always funny. Looking back at the ’80s through the prism that is a musicless music video for the Ghostbusters theme song? It is completely ridiculous. The chintzy special effects, the totally creeping Ray Parker Jr and the hilariousness of the movie all get smashed together for a rocking good watch.


The Best Stuff At Toy Fair 2015

Once a year, toy companies from all over the world converge on New York to reveal what everyone will be fighting to buy their kids — or themselves — when the holidays roll around again.

The Ghostbusters Are Back In A Board Game That May Or May Not Be Haunted

The history of Ghostbusters video games isn’t exactly dotted with memorable titles, so when the folks at Cryptozoic (the same people responsible for the wonderful Adventure Time Card Wars game) wanted to re-visit the franchise, they decided to turn it into an episodic board game instead. And given the explosion in popularity of both board games and busting ghosts as of late, the company probably won’t have much difficulty in making its Kickstarter campaign a success.


The Four Actresses Who Might Be The New Ghostbusters

A Working NES Inside An Ecto-1 Is Everything Great About The '80s

Meet The Man Who Designed Ghostbusters' Most Iconic Props In Two Weeks

If you’re spending millions of dollars to make a movie, it seems like it would only make sense to make sure everything is ready for day one of filming, right?. Apparently Hollywood doesn’t work that way, because as the designer of Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters reveals in this fun interview, they only started building the now iconic props two weeks before filming began.


Using Light-Painting Effects To Recreate The Ghostbusters Proton Streams

When you find yourself in times of trouble, always remember: Don’t cross the streams. Egon’s ghostbusting words of wisdom still hold true today. Joey Shanks at PBS Digital Studios knows that. But he’s risked total protonic reversal to show us how to recreate the glowing effects of everyone’s favourite Slimer-busting backpacks using simple light painting techniques.
