Ghostbusters II
DELETED SCENES

Here are some deleted scenes from Ghostbusters II along with script excerpts of the scenes. The written scenes below were taken from the final shooting script. What is written may vary from what is spoken by the actors. In some cases the scene still appears in the film, but I have some still photos of shots that were not used. In other cases, footage from the scene was used in the film in a completely different way (such as during the end credits). The list of scenes below is in order of how they would have appeared in the movie. Following that are some odds and ends that aren't full scenes, but were deleted from the film nonetheless.

The Frog Ghost, which the January 1990 issue of Cinefantastique magazine says was "axed when the live-action subway footage didn't work." Another source says it was edited out of a subway scene because Ivan Reitman didn't think it was scary enough.

Alternate Footage
Alternate Version (A), then Original Version (B)

The alternate footage comes from the theatrical trailer (Weird Things clip) and broadcast tv airings (Worms clip). The original versions come from the 1999 DVD (the "Full Screen" side).

Here we see Louis running up the museum steps, which we don't see in the film, as he's already at the top when we see the Ghostbusters and Dana are coming out.
