A week that’s already seen a strained nostalgia grab and cute little sentient marshmallow characters has now officially become overstuft.
This first clip from Ghostbusters: Afterlife opens on the original Ghostbusters’ eerie library theme, then reveals not a terrifying jump-scare of an old lady becoming a demon but something much more sinister: the reveal that the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is now a horde of Minion-like lil’ rascals. Just the most pandering shit. Baby Slimer is going to waddle up and eat the Stay-Puft S’more and there’s nothing we can do about that.
But couldn’t the CGI at least look less like it’s from a 1998 children’s cereal commercial?
