Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra
(unlike the tame and family-friendly second movie)
People call the second film tame, and there are certainly some lighter elements to it than the first film, but it's fucking creepy
at a lot of points, as well, and feels considerably darker: In Ghostbusters
, Dana sees a dog in her fridge roaring at her. In Ghostbusters II
, her baby is almost shoved in front of a speeding bus, her bathtub tries to eat her and then Janosz in drag steals her baby.
Add the idea of a painting that really is watching you and Ray's possession.
I only saw the 2nd one at the cinema, but I have always had a preference for it. I'm not really a comedy film person though.
