FYI, the highly anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife is FINALLY* hitting the big screen Nov. 19 (this Friday!). And the newest addition to the iconic franchise serves as a sequel to the original 1984 film (and, technically, 1989's Ghostbusters II **), and it will hit you RIGHT in the feels if you're a fan.
FWIW, the whole thing feels like a love letter to costar–co-creator Harold Ramis (who died in 2014), and while I admit this film is not ~perfect~, I still really loved it — truly, 10/10 would recommend. It's a fun ride that ties back to a lot of story elements from the original film, and there are also some genuinely emotional twists!
So here are 16 reasons why you should check it out:
PS: There are no MAJOR spoilers ahead, but if you want to go into the movie totally knowing nothing (like, literally without even watching trailers), just save this for later!
