Comment from: Aidan White [Visitor]  

Hi, Paul. My name's Aidan and I'm an armature GB expert. I'm not sure if you seen this, but I found a fan recreation of the 1984 teaser song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDyIdG2ETY8

If you have any updates on finding the original version of this song, I would love to hear it.

Thank you for your time.

In response to: Incomplete Special Features on the 2019 Ghostbusters 1&2 4K/Blu-ray Set - Watch The COMPLETE ShoWest Exhibitor Reel!!!

Comment from: [Member]

Hi Guy

Of course I told them to find the GB2 deleted scenes. As far as I know, they couldn't find them...or couldn't find them in time to make the disc. After the disc went to press, they found more stuff, some of which was shown at Fan Fest last June. If they keep to a "every five years" schedule, we can hope they will include that stuff on the next disc release in 2024.

Comment from: Guy [Visitor]  

That was awesome! Man I love stuff like this. I wonder if GB2 has a similar reel. Great to hear that unused song. Thank god they didn’t use it. Can you imagine?

Wait, so Sony asked you about Ghostbusters content to put on the 4K? So I gotta ask...

Where are all the freakin GB2 deleted scenes? The ones with finish ILM FX? Like Slimer eating the chicken? Or Sherman Tully? Or the Ray possessed driving scene? The frog ghost? The rumoured Slimer coming out of the Statue of Liberty? Is all of it lost? Was that stuff you asked for?

Hi James

I'm glad to hear that the book is progressing nicely. It's good to have that to look forward to next year.

Thanks for the additional information on the song count and about the "Kerrang!" excerpt. Your comment helps add some perspective on that.

Comment from: James Greene, Jr. [Visitor]  

Hey Paul, thanks for the credit here. I'm still working on the book! It'll be out in 2021 via Lyons Press. It's an exhaustive, detailed history of all the "Ghostbusters" films, including the ones they never made, getting into a lot of stuff other books gloss over or ignore completely. There'll be tons on the music, especially from the first film.

According to Ray Parker, 60 songs were submitted before he was hired, with some artists turning in multiple options. Also, when I was on the phone with Pat Thrall, he read that "Kerrang!" excerpt and dismissed it as baloney!

Comment from: Gianni Belotti [Visitor]

I'm always impressed with huge discoveries like this. I guess the Sonic movie isn't the only one that had a similar theme situation (those songs being Wiz Khalifa's Speed Me Up and Chizzy's Gotta Go Fast) even if the swap was for other reasons. I do remember typing down a set of lyrics for the Unknown song tho, it was based on the teaser snippet and a fanmade full version if I recall. Either way, I'm pumped for the unedited ShoWest reel!

In response to: Paul's Ghostbusters II Alternate Scenes Theory

Comment from: DeAndrea Gaskin [Visitor]  

I seen Ghostbusters 2 in theaters. I remember an additional river of slime scene. The Ghostbusters were floating in the river of slime and they come to the sewer ladder and grab it. This scene came before the scene where the Ghostbusters come out of the man hole. Does anyone else recall this scene?

You can also see the Times Square Wienerwald in the first couple of minutes of Cannibal Ferox, which I believe was shot in 80 or 81.

I've decided to throw my hat into the ring, and try my hand at organizing an "Expanded Edition" playlist of the Ghostbusters Score and Soundtrack. Which plays the aforementioned Score and Soundtrack in the order they are heard in the film. Feel free to take a listen anytime you like. (I would like to thank Christopher Robert Adams for his take on the Bernstein Score ordering, as it really helped me be able to list the Score tracks properly.)


Thank you and enjoy! - Noah

In response to: Extreme Ghostbusters: The Complete Series Unofficial/Bootleg Blu-ray Set Review

Comment from: AMBER [Visitor]

It's so crazy to me that Extreme Ghostbusters hasn't been given a proper release. I purchased the official volume 1 when it came out years ago. I thought they did a good job on that. I don't know why they opted to only release one volume. Perhaps it didn't sell enough for general release? Even so they could have still done a MOD release for it. It's such a good show. I've been waiting years to get a copy of this but sony has failed to deliver so I bought this one.

In response to: The Movies That Made Us: Ghostbusters (Netflix Episode) Review

Comment from: Mac [Visitor]

They covered the legal matter regarding filmation, but not the lawsuit with Huey Lewis. It shows Ray Parker jr saying how the melody was the easy part of writing the song & other interviewees mention the theme song. Maybe it's part of the gag order in thw settlement that niether party is at liberty to discuss it in interviews?

I'm interested to see how much they cover the filmation ghostbusters toys in the real ghostbusters toys episode whenever it gets made.

In response to: Ghostbusters: Afterlife - First Trailer Review

Comment from: [Member]

Zidders - I didn't even realize that I, essentially, described Army of Darkness. I was just thinking of "sword and sorcery" films in general when I came up with that idea. My idea, which is separate from my analysis of the Afterlifer trailer - though I probably didn't make that entirely clear, is along the lines of what Disney did with Solo: A Star Wars Story. It is a film that takes place in the past and is, more or less, a different genre (action adventure serial like Indiana Jones, not Jedi Space Opera) than the other Star Wars films.

Alex - I can't believe I completely forgot about the dilapidated "Ecto-1" from the beginning of GB2. I guess I blocked it from my memory :-) I updated my review to include a new theory that takes this into account. As for the computer photos... The one on top, I'm sure, is Peter in the orange jacket at Lincoln Center. I didn't mention it in my review because I didn't immediately recognize which specific photo it is. I had no clue who was in the bottom photo, but I think you're right about it being Ray Parker Jr. in his outfit from the music video. I like your theory that RPJ's song and music video exist in-universe. I can definitely see Peter making that kind of publicity happen, as long as he gets to be in the music video :-) I never thought about how Ray and Winston knew the song for their birthday parties in 1989, but now I'll be using your theory to accept that.

Also, if you look carefully at my full-size framegrabs, you'll notice that the photos are purposely blurred. I suspect that they did this in the trailer either to keep them as a surprise, or because they couldn't clear (or didn't want to pay for) the likeness rights for the trailer.
