How many of you were traumatized as a little kid by this dude (if you grew up in the 80s that is)? The "Boogieman" from the old Real Ghostbusters cartoon, would terrorize kids at night in their bedrooms. I was about 5 years old when I saw first saw the episode with him in it. He's... not as scary 26 years on (if you actually go look at an actual clip from the show, lol) but when I was 5 and he first showed up and made Egon shit a brick when Frank Welker's raspy voice came out of his mouth and said "I REMEMBER YOUUUUU". Never ever forgot that moment, freaked me the hell out as a kid
This is how "5 year old Me" remembers him. Far scarier than he actually was, lol.
So Ghostbusters (as I've mentioned many a time to anyone who will listen) is my favorite film and always has been. Now internet nerdrumblings suggest that in Ghostbusters 3, Peter Venkman will appear, but dead as some kind of ghost. Naturally the internet has reacted to this rumor with the logic and control it is known for...
Here's my verdict; This could be a really good idea, Bill Murray ghosting around the place, sliming people, doing what he wants and causing hilarious chaos laughs. Maybe he could be the new team's equivalent of Slimer? Maybe he could smooth talk all the ghosts into helping the Ghostbusters to defeat some super-ghoul type (feel free to steal this idea Ramis et Aykroyd). I'd like a well made threequel to my most cherished movie, not an Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull where Dan Aykroyd swings through the trees with the ghosts of monkeys.
Wait! Thats another great idea! Get Hollywoods on the phone!

My second finished Ghostbusters III poster. I started this poster project quite a while back, making dozens of quick pencil sketches of different ideas. I finally chose the one I liked best and finished it. Finally. I had also prepared a Ghostbusters III logo for this poster but ultimately decided not to use it.
