Ghostheads full movie review - I ain't fraid of no fan......
The term Ghosthead is used for a devout fan of all things Ghostbusters. They collect every item of memorabilia, go to conventions, the set of the reboot, and each state has their own sector of Ghosthead, as depicted by the different patches that they wear.
The documentary is a fascinating insight to fans who go beyond the norm to show their love for the film. And when they are on their own, in the vox pop sense of the documentary, they are genuinely interesting people....a little extreme in some instances ( I think the his name was Chace, but the guy who takes his daughter to school in the Ecto- 1), but hey, it's their passion, so who am I to judge?
But the documentary takes quite an interesting term when these fans actually mix with each other. It feels that they are in competition with each other, and suddenly it doesn't seem like the fun they should be having.
Their is no clear evidence by physical acts in the documentary, but there are signs of body language that states different.
But the biggest reason to see this is the scene where Chace meets with Peter, the first Ghosthead, who even played an extra in Ghostbusters II. It's one of the most uncomfortable situations I've seen in recent time, and again, it's down to body language.
It's clear that Chace is in awe of the first Ghosthead, and Peter looks clearly uncomfortable to be in his company. It gives the documentary a dark edge, and makes it all the more watchable.
Other than that, it's your usual talking heads from stars of the original, and for once, it's genuinely interesting, and you can see the love the stars have for the film.
