FAN EFFECT

“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” is what audiences have wanted with a nostalgic sequel

Today the nerds at the Fan Effect podcast deep dive into probably one of the most looked forward to films of 2021, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” This latest continuation of the Ghost hunting sort takes place some 30 plus years after the original, wherein a new generation of busters takes up the call to fight those pesky visitors from beyond the grave. Host Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen are joined by THE reigning Ghostbusters fan, Jon Smith from Utah's classic rock station - The Arrow. While the first segment is spoiler-free, the rest of the show dives deep into the new film, Ghostbusters lore, and a lot of fun tangents. While some critics are blasting the film as pandering, the consensus here is that  “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” is a blast and what audiences have wanted from a nostalgic sequel.  Beyond Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming and Tech, the brains behind Fan Effect are connoisseurs of categories surpassing the nerdy. Brilliant opinions and commentary on all things geek, but surprising knowledge and witty arguments over pop culture, Star Trek, MARVEL vs DC, and a wide range of movies, TV shows, and more. Formerly known as SLC Fanboys, the show is hosted byAndy Farnsworth andKellieAnn Halvorsen, who are joined by guest experts.
