“Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” is spooky, sentimental fun

Sony Pictures
Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray reprise their iconic ghost-busting characters Winston Zedmore and Dr. Peter Venkman in the 2024 franchise sequel “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire.”

Do you guys believe in ghosts? If yes, good thing, because this movie is based around all different types of ghosts!

This movie is a sequel of four different Ghostbusters movies. “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” was released on March 14. Ghostbusters was filmed mostly in London, but they made the set like they were in New York City.

The director of this film is Gil Kenan and some of the main actors in this film are McKenna Grace (Phoebe), Finn Wolfhard (Trevor), Paul Rudd (Mr. Grooberson) and Carrie Coon (Callie).  This is about a family of four trying to catch ghosts who have been haunting their town for many years.  

The movie takes place as the Spengler family is chasing a ghost in their Ghostbusters car. The family ends up catching the ghost and takes it back to their home. The Spengler family gets home and realizes there is no more room for their ghost to go… this is where the movie gets good, but I can’t say anything else or ill ruin it for all of you! All I can say is that Phoebe gets her and her whole family into a lot of trouble.  

This film has a good soundtrack; the song choice for each incident makes it ten times better. I personally think they cast the best people for each role, every character matches each actor so well it’s incredible. The actor that stood out to me the most would have to be Phoebe. She did an amazing job at playing her role and it helped me understand the movie a lot better.  

I recommend going to see this movie with your family, any age can see this film, but I would say around 8-year-olds and up would understand it very clearly.  If you like any movies that are action-packed but also horror, at the same time this one is for you.

It is a little longer of a film (around 2 hours) but I promise you will be entertained the whole time, it is that good! There is no strong language, so it’s perfect for little kids, but also keeps adults at the edge of their seat watching. 

I liked this movie for two reasons: one being that the movie was never boring, it always held my attention. For me I always get bored watching movies, but at the end of this one I wanted more.

The second reason I would watch this movie, if I were you, is because it’s honestly a great cast, everyone plays their role really well.  Oh, I forgot, it’s also a classic – they have been making this sequel for over 40 years! That’s insane!

To sum it all up, go and watch this movie, you won’t regret it!
