Ghost Chase aka Hollywood-Monster (1987)

I can only remember snippets of this movie from when I was a kid so i'm treating this one like a new screening and not a rewatch.

What an amazing movie! This film literally has everything. A hot girl, two cool kids who love movies, ghosts and a great bad guy. It's made even better by the theme track 'Imagination' by Belouis Some, that immediately takes you into the 80's.

It's hard to believe that this film is made by the same hands that brought us The Day After Tomorrow and 2012. He really did have to be creative before moving on to major blockbusters and throwing the studios money away on CG effects.

The kids at the centre of this movie really do make it and the ghost butler is fantastic too. I had a really fun time with this one and can't wait to screen Emmerich's next effort Making Contact real soon. Great 80's fun!
