The film begins with a chilling tale of murderous intrigue during a tour of a haunted museum.
I personally found this particular scene somewhat entertaining as it portrayed the familiar creepy vibe from the original film.
The scene concludes with a somewhat drawn out venture into the basement of the building, misleading the audience to believe that it was somehow significant to the over all plot, which it simply wasn't. The iconic Ghostbusters theme begins and every fan is on the edge of their seats. I was personally pleased that the director began the movie in the same iconic fashion as the original films. The story continues with Kristen Wiig's Character Erin Gilbert, who's integrity as a professor seeking legitimacy is immediately diminished as she is caught dancing like a fool before an empty lecture hall. Though many fans have seen this as a character flaw, I found it important to the over all plot, that professor Gilbert simply wasn't destined to remain in her current position. Though I found her antics relatively unfunny, it was not far off from Dr. Peter Vekman's attitude when it came to his image.
