With the help of the Museum's possessed curator, he plans to turn New York into a really scary place to live!

Critics Consensus: Thanks to the cast, Ghostbusters 2 is reasonably amusing, but it lacks the charm, wit, and energy of its predecessor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ghostbusters II is the 1989 sequel to Ghostbusters. Amid the scenes of ghosts and slimes, there are some scenes of demonic imagery, including a scene in which dozens of decapitated cadaver heads are on stakes. Profanity is infrequent ("a--hole" and "s--t") and there's some sexual innuendo, including references to "gynecological exams" and "exposing ourselves." Sex is implied between two characters who jump up from a couch with their hair messed up and clothes rumpled when someone else enters the room. Cigar smoking is shown, as is wine drinking in an upscale restaurant. In one scene, an infant steps out onto the ledge of a high-rise building and hangs precariously over the edge.
