I wished for a third GHOSTBUSTERS movie for the longest time. I grew up with watching GHOSTBUSTERS AND GHOSTBUSTERS II on VHS and Cable TV. GHOSTBUSTERS was one of the first VHS movies that my Mom ever rented with a VCR back in the 1980s. Actor Bill Murray was dissatisfied with how GHOSTBUSTERS II came out and he would always be the one hold out among the cast against being part of a third GHOSTBUSTERS movie. That sequel would languish in development hell for over two decades until GHOSTBUSTERS was rebooted as the female led GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL which divided the fan base. Some hated it while the cast and director Paul Feig would blame the fans back. The movie bombed for not making enough money back against its huge budget. Then Jason Reitman (son of original GHOSTBUSTERS director Ivan Reitman) came up with an idea for a sequel to the original GHOSTBUSTERS which would act as a love letter to the original movies while passing the torch. The first two thirds of the movie is great, but I feel the last third doesn't have the power of the third act that the first two movies did. The climax is just a little disappointing. I wish the original cast was in the movie more despite all of the Easter eggs and call backs to the first movie.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
The various featurettes give a good look at the making of the movie along with a look back at the first two movies and where things could go from here.

Also there is a deleted scene included among the extras along with previews for other releases from Sony Pictures. The digital code provides you access to a digital copy of the movie and many of the extras.

FINAL ANALYSIS: I enjoyed GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE which is a nice cocktail of nostalgia and the new despite the third act being a bit underwhelming. The extras aren't bad even though there is no audio commentary for the movie. Hopefully, we get to see more of the original Ghostbusters in the next one.
