So what do you get when you take THE FRIGHTENERS, GHOSTBUSTERS, and contemporary irreverent humor and blend it together? You get DEADTECTIVES!
It seems we have hit a point of rigidity. We can’t make anything new or original without having it soaked in blood and gore. We certainly can’t make anything original AND with a diverse cast because the internet is still too young for it. So we must look back to “better days” where there was just not enough POC to make white people uncomfortable but give the industry a reason to say, “hey, look, you guys get roles too.”
"It’s not just the nostalgia for the great Ray Parker Jr. theme song, the toys, or the Saturday morning cartoon series. It’s because GHOSTBUSTERS is a truly great film. Sure, it didn’t win any Oscars, but if you gave me a choice between re-watching it or say, AMADEUS, that year’s Oscar champion, there would be no contest."
