If you hear screaming, that’s me because UNIVERSAL STUDIOS JUST ANNOUNCED THEIR GHOSTBUSTERS HOUSE AT HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS!
Fans have been waiting for this for months as rumors ramped up and excitement reached a fever pitch. And then, we read the copy and our excitement went nuclear. Melting down the containment system nuclear.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary, you’ll jump through the movie screen of the original 1984 film and walk through some of your favorite scenes like the New York Public Library, the Temple of Gozer and more.
In this haunted house, you’ll be transported to the streets of New York as the rift between worlds opens, releasing ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms in every shape and size. Come face-to-face with the voracious Slimer, the all-power Gozer the Gozerian, Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man and more.
Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston will have to save the day as these paranormal creatures materialize in unexpected places – but will their proton packs be enough?

And if that isn’t enough to get you excited, there’s this:
Get your proton packs on, fellow Ghostbusters! It’s on!
In the 1980s, the only way to skip past the commercials was to walk to the fridge to get a can of Tab. As such, advertisers didn’t have to be too creative with their ad campaigns and yet, we still got some pretty iconic commercials from that era. Naturally, my favorite were the Halloween commercials. So stroll down the lane of television commercials from Halloween past, would you?
Before Spirit Halloween and Amazon, there was Woolworth’s and Ben Cooper costumes. Come October, the shelves would be stacked with neatly organized boxes that promised a plastic mask and apron in sizes S, M and L. If you’re lucky, you might also happen upon a copy of “Sounds to Make You Shiver.”
While this was technically 1990, it’s still a relic of the era.
Another one from the very early 90s (1991), this one is, like the Easter Seals commercial, one that very much holds true to the spirit of the 80s. Honestly advertisers, if you put more Frankenstein in your ads, you’d probably have less folks hitting that “skip ad” button these days.

By the time the fireworks started popping on July 4th, most of you Strangers had finished bingeing Stranger Things season 3. My plan had been to hop right on here and write up my own review and have it in the queue to publish in the morning.
What I wasn’t expecting was to be emotionally drained when the credits rolled. Each season of Stranger Things has left me bouncing off the walls, giddy as all get out and ready to rush into tons of discussion. This season left me “needing a moment” to get my thoughts together.
So before I jump off into spoilers, I’ll give you this quick spoiler-free nugget: Stranger Things Season 3 is a triumph of storytelling. It’s on-par with the first season and, in some ways, surpasses the perfection of season one in its scope and themes.
Now, if you haven’t watched Stranger Things Season 3, you might want to stop here and go watch it, because beyond here, there be spoilers, matey.
