A team of "scientists" wages a high-tech battle with the supernatural while facing prosecution for fraud and environmental hazards. Business takes off, however, when New York is overrun by rioting ghosts. The film's theme song, "Ghostbusters," topped the charts.
The screenplay for "Ghostbusters," written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, is said to take its premise from the Michael Winner-Jeffery Konvitz' 1977 feature film "The Sentinel."
