CastEdit

PlotEdit

LocationsEdit

  • Firehouse
    • At 18 N. Moore Street, the Ecto-1 stops at the barricades.
  • Subway/Newsstand
  • Louis wanders near Embassy Theater and WienerWald Austrian Restaurant on Times Square.[1]
  • Louis wanders near George M. Cohan Statue in Times Square.[2]
  • Rockefeller Plaza (Slimer is there)
  • Zuul's view shows Central Park on Central Park Loop

TriviaEdit

  • Zuul and Vinz Clortho's meeting was cut between the City Jail and City Hall scenes. A scene was added to the end of the montage to link the ghosts with the apartment - the stream of ghosts streaming past Dana's apartment up to the temple and the wall explodes outward. [3]
  • In the script, Dana's apartment was destroyed by Zuul and Vinz' consummation. [4]
  • One of the sequences excised from the montage involved a ghost molester harassing typists in an office pool. [5] [6] [7]
  • Another excised sequence involved ghosts appearing in a 3-D theater. It would have been a very expensive and time consuming major effects sequence. An old theater in Glendale was chosen for the sequence. Since Entertainment Effects Group was too busy with everything else, the scene was deleted. [8]

Paragraph reads: "As shot, the long-delayed joining of Zuul and Vinz took a somewhat different form and was cut into the film between the Ghostbusters' release from the holding cell and their arrival at City Hall. Since it was decided earlier that a definite link needed to be established between the ghostly disturbances and the apartment building on Central Park West, a scene was added at the end of the ghost montage showing the possessed Dana looking out her window as clouds of disembodied spirits stream up from lower Manhattan. As they swoop past her penthouse apartment, en route to the rooftop temple, the wall between them explodes outward."

Joe Medjuck says: "In the film, the apartment is already demolished when Louis arrives. But in the script, it is the force of Zuul the Gatekeeper and Vinz the Keymaster consummating their passion that blows the place apart. That was their purpose in coming together - make love. And then, on a second level, there's the comic irony that under his bizarre set of circumstances - which neither of them will remember - Louis finally gets to make it with Dana."

Harold Ramis says: "Ghost sex is a classic supernatural phenomenon, so we thought it would be funny and sort of naughty to have an invisible ghost molesting all these typists - tickling them and goosing them and ripping their blouses open. The more we thought about it, though, the more adolescent and tasteless it seemed. We had much more material than we could possibly use for the ghost montage, and there were other things we liked a lot better, so we never even shot it."

Ivan Reitman says: "The whole idea of the ghost molester seemed like something of The Invisible Man or Topper - it just didn't fit into this movie. It probably would have gotten a big laugh, but we didn't need it. More importantly, we didn't have time for it."

Joe Medjuck says: "The theater sequence was in and then out, and then in and out again. We all loved it and we knew the audience would, too. But finally, we decided to cut it. It would have been a major effects sequence - very expensive and time-consuming - and the effects people already had their hands full. We did go as far as scouting locations for it, and found in old theater in Glendale that we were going to use: but ultimately, the plates were never shot."
