Who You Gonna Call?


I’m old school. A true child of the 80s. I still watch my favorites whenever I spot them on TV. The Goonies, The Golden Child, Big Trouble in Little China… I can go on and on. I watch them all – over and over again. And this afternoon I had the chance to scare the living daylights out of my kids. So, I took it! We watched Ghostbusters together. As you can see – this was their first scary movie.

We all know it’s not THAT scary – but they’ve never seen anything ghost related and it freaked them out a bit. Well, until they realized that it was all campy fun and then they got into it.


By the end of the film, they were begging to watch it with me again. I’m so happy we got through it. There’s only so much Nickelodeon a girl can take. Isn’t it fun when the family finally starts to enjoy the same TV programming?

    So much fun! My dad always made me and my brother watch those 80s movies when we were kids (Karate Kid was our favourite) My brother and I are now in our twenties, but we still watch those movies with our dad. We’ve seen them all about a million times, but we still pretend it’s all new to us. My mom hates it 😛

  2. Ghostbusters is one of my all time favorite movies! I can’t wait to watch it with my son. I quote Bill Murray all of the time, usually when I’m telling my husband he has to kill a spider for me. “It’ll bite your head off, man.”
