The Spooky Parts Of Ghostbusters Were Teams Of Nerds And Ghosts Wearing Jeans
Unless you work in the field of environmental protection, Ghostbusters isn't really a horror movie. Still, there are some scary parts, especially for a kid. The librarian turns into a monster, Dana is terrorized by demons, and Dan Aykroyd is convinced that America needs to see him get blown by a dead person.
But behind the scenes, even the horror elements of the movie were rather goofy. The demon hands clawing at Dana were really a trio of puppeteers playing a super-awkward round of Twister.
So it wasn't done with real ghosts.
And the terror dog ...
... was in a few shots an animatronic puppet controlled by a team of nerds.
The crew gave them those hats to identify them as nerds.
And Slimer is certainly less horrifying when you see him wearing jeans:
Interestingly, he switched to stockings for the sequel:
Making him look like the world's creepiest Rockette.
Oh, and here's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man with his head off:
"I ... should ... not ... be."
That ... that is actually quite a bit more terrifying than before. They were right to burn him.
