Ghostheads is a documentary that explores the extreme side of the Ghostbusters fandom, and looks back at the impact the franchise has had on the world over the past three decades. Through interviews with key cast and crew, including Dan Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman, Ernie Hudson and many more, as well as with Ghostbusters fans all over the world, Ghostheads presents countless humanizing stories that will connect with audiences about comradery, overcoming obstacles, and that no one should ever feel alone or isolated. Ghostheads will show what really separates a fandom from the rest. Every Ghosthead is unique. Every Franchise is its own.
The team behind Ghostheads definitely put a lot of their own personal time and effort into this. They really wanted to show exactly what being involved in a fandom can be all about. Knowing one of the producers from years past and his enthusiasm and passion for Ghostbusters has really shown in this documentary. Let it be known that he does not make this a self serving documentary at all, even for the amount of dedication he has to this franchise, these individuals, and this fandom. If you sit back and take this documentary for what it really is, it can show you just how anyone, from any background can get involved and create a community for themselves to foster good ideas, to help people, and let anyone be who they want to be. We are all different, and that's OK. It is communities like these that can provide us support in times we might need it the most.
