What if Ghostbusters had been made in 1954?


This fan-made trailer was brought to our attention by my friend Doug and it begs us to consider what would the movie “Ghostbusters” have been like had it been made in 1954. The trailer contains scenes from “Ghostbusters, The Three Stooges, Scared Stiff, Ghost Breakers, Topper Takes a Trip, The Ghost Busters, Abbott and Costello meet the Invisible Man, Star Trek, Ghosts on the Loose, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Spooks Run Wild, Flubber, Son of Flubber, The Caddy and 100 ans d’histoires de Bibendum”

    In all fairness, I have to give props to io9 for pointing me in the direction of this gem in the first place, but thanks for the mention! :) I love how all the lines from the original movie are superimposed as sell lines. Classic.
