Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Contains Infamous Deleted Scenes

By

It sounds almost too good to be true, but assuming that things keep according to schedule, fans from all over will be watching Ghostbusters 3 in a little more than a year. It’s hard to believe things have progressed this quickly, and it was only a few months ago that Sony Pictures released a brief teaser to hype everyone up. Of course, longtime devotees have been eagerly awaiting the next entry in the franchise (one which continues the ongoing story), and now, they’ll be able to relive the glory days of the ’80s, thanks to a limited edition re-release of the first two films.

This new collection includes a steelbook case, packing in 4K and Blu-Ray versions of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, along with digital copies for those who prefer to stream their movies. This collection not only contains high-quality UHD masters of both films but plenty of special features and deleted scenes, including the Fort Detmerring ghost. In this infamous sequence (which didn’t make the theatrical cut), both Ray and Winston are seen investigating an old military fort. Ray, who puts on an old officer’s uniform, ends up falling asleep before he is… “serviced” by a ghost.

It’s great that this long-forgotten (and somewhat raunchy) scene has finally been released in high quality, alongside a handful of other bonus goodies – all of which you can view below:
