The 1954 Version of GHOSTBUSTERS

We’ve talked about Ghostbusters before on the site, but we really haven’t given enough quality time to that most awesome of 80s sci-fi films now, have we? Let’s rectify that with a fun, fan-made trailer that answers the question “What if Ghostbusters were released in 1954 instead of 1984?”

Here’s how the creator, whoiseyevan, introduces the concept of the clip over on YouTube:

What if… Ghostbusters, the movie, was shot in 1954 instead of 1984? Who should be part of the cast? Would they have the same equipment? Who would they battle? Considering Dan Aykroyd’s concept owes a lot to Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, and Lewis and Martin comedies of the 40s and 50s, it is not that big of a stretch to speculate.

I’ll admit that I don’t know much about the back story behind Ghostbusters, but I definitely see what whoiseyevan is talking about. What about you?
