Does Ghostbusters still hold up if you forget 1,000 rained-out VHS viewings, or school fancy-dress days, or that cartoon which made you think Slimer was far more prominent than he actually was? Yes – in a big way.

The leads’ chemistry is almost, well, spooky, Dan Aykroyd’s nerdy enthusiasm rubbing deliciously against a persona-perfecting turn from Bill Murray – and there’s even the odd surprise.

Watch the ’84 hit with new eyes and you’ll be surprised at how gritty Venkman et al’s New York is.

Would a fantasy comedy romp made today take place in half as recognisable a world?
