After being delayed for over a year, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is finally in theaters, bringing new life to a decades-old franchise. The new movie introduces a young cast of Ghostbusters, sees some returning favorites, and gives a hint at what’s been going on with the spirit world since the end of Ghostbusters II.
In his review of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, GameSpot’s Chris E. Hayner said the movie “The Force Awakens level of homaging to the first Ghostbusters film,” but that it strikes “a balance between action, family-friendly levels of horror, and a comedic tone that doesn’t overpower the story. There are some decent scares in the movie, but nothing that should be too overwhelming for younger audiences. And while the other Ghostbusters films are undoubtedly in the comedy/horror genre, Afterlife is a sort of adventure movie more akin to The Goonies than anything else.”
