Who you gonna call? Classic Replay.

GHOSTBUSTERS Cert 12A, 105mins ****

So what's the lowdown? Three eccentric parapsychologists (Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis) go into business hunting spooks in New York city. They face big problems when hired by a woman (Sigourney Weaver) whose apartment is haunted by a winged demon.

Why the re-release? Oh, ye of little faith. When unleashed in the summer of 1984, this was THE film everyone was talking about, earning half a billion dollars at the box office, spawning a sequel and an animated TV series. Ray Parker Jr's theme tune also got to No 2 in the UK charts.

But how does it look now? Stunning. The original print has been sexed-up to glorious HD and, even after all these years, there's never been a better mix of horror, sci-fi and comedy.
