Who loves a good ole double feature. The movies the dynamic duo will be discussing is the “The Visit” by M. Night Shyalaman and Peter Feig’s…long awaited remake…of Ghostbusters.
The Synopsis for The Visit: Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and younger brother Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) say goodbye to their mother as they board a train and head deep into Pennsylvania farm country to meet their maternal grandparents for the first time. Welcomed by Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie), all seems well until the siblings start to notice increasingly strange behavior from the seemingly charming couple. Once the children discover a shocking secret, they begin to wonder if they’ll ever make it home.

The Synopsis for Ghostbusters 2016: Days from becoming a tenured professor in the Columbia University physics department, Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) visits her childhood friend Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) – to request that Abby remove the online listing for a 400-page book on paranormal science the pair co-authored years earlier. In exchange for removing the order page, Abby and her research partner, Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), persuade Erin to join them for one final investigation – during which the three scientists encounter an actual ghost. Dismissing footage of the incident, YouTube commenters, experts, and their (now former) employers chastise Erin, Abby, and Holtzmann – labeling the women attention-seeking fakes. Driven to prove they are not con-artists, and that ghosts are real, the trio rent space above a Chinese food restaurant, hire a hunky receptionist named Kevin (Chris Hemsworth), develop experimental energy weapons, and begin studying paranormal events around New York City. The search brings Erin, Abby, and Holtzmann to MTA employee and NYC history buff, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), who leads the team to a malevolent apparition haunting the subway tracks and a terrifying revelation: someone is building a device to break the wall between our world and the paranormal – to kick-off the apocalypse.
