There’s no denying that Ghostbusters is the most beloved movie of all time, and if you didn’t realize that before, you sure have these last several months. The extreme hatred for the remake has been almost entirely a result of how beloved the original is, and if you’re just not feeling Paul Feig’s film, have no fear. Netflix has got you covered.
Hitting the streaming service on Friday, July 15th, the very same day the Ghostbusters remake begins its theatrical haunt, is the documentary Ghostheads, which explores Ghostbusters fandom in a way that no other documentary ever has. Directed by Brendan Mertens, the doc will remind that Ghostbusters fans, despite what we’ve seen on the internet this past year, are pretty awesome people.
About the film…
Ghostheads is a documentary that explores the extreme side of the Ghostbusters fandom, and looks back at the impact the franchise has had on the world over the past three decades. Through interviews with key cast and crew, including Dan Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman, Ernie Hudson and many more, as well as with Ghostbusters fans all over the world, Ghostheads presents countless humanizing stories that will connect with audiences about camaraderie, overcoming obstacles, and that no one should ever feel alone or isolated.
Ghostheads will show what really separates a fandom from the rest. Every Ghosthead is unique. Every Franchise is its own.
It’s been over 30 years since Ghostbusters first premiered on the big screen back in 1984, with the film spawning generations of fans all over the world. Our movie captures the magic these movies created by showcasing the fans, and seeing the reactions from the cast and crew involved with the Ghostbusters franchise overall.
