Edible Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man

Edible Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man

Ghostbusters fans know that Mr. Stay-Puft could never ever possibly destroy us. But you can do the destroying. This 8-1/2″ tall, edible marshmallow monster weighs in at about 10.5 ounces, and is loaded with sugary goodness. While it looks delicious, 13 bucks is a lot to pay for something that amounts to an oversized Peep.

Maybe it’s just because Finn Wolfhard is in it, but the teaser trailer has a distinctly Stranger Things vibe to it.

Ghostbusters 2 Honest Trailer

“If you loved the first Ghostbusters movie, then you should definitely watch that one instead.” Screen Junkies takes on the The Hangover 2 of of the 80’s. Ghostbusters 2 was kinda funny, but it uses the same story beats as the original and maybe shouldn’t have been made.

Low Budget Proton Streams

Low Budget Proton Streams

Practical VFX artist Joey Shanks simulates the proton stream effect from Ghostbusters using not much more than some flashlights, LEDs, fishing line, and long-exposures. We love how the prop Neutrino Wand cost way more than the effects.
