Ghostbusters and the Angel of NYNEX


Geoff Manaugh:

Thing is – spoiler alert – halfway through the film, the Ghostbusters realize that NYNEX isn’t a phone system at all: it’s the embedded nervous system of an angel – a fallen angel – and all those phone calls and dial-up modems in college dorm rooms and public pay phones are actually connected into the fiber-optic anatomy of a vast, ethereal organism that preceded the architectural build-up of Manhattan.

Manhattan came afterwards, that is: NYNEX was here first.

    I’m deeply disappointed that this is not real.

    I had an idea for a GB III once, called Ghostbusters L.A., about the ghost of a silent film director releasing the ghosts of dead Hollywood stars because he thought modern films suck. But alas, it can never be done, as John Candy has passed to the other side.

    (He would have looked cool in the jumpsuit, standing behind Jeff Goldblum and Dave Thomas.)

    Neat idea. BTW, I’ve seen that stock cert image before elsewhere. Care to cite source?

    This guy needs to put this into a script and sell it. It’s gold.
