It is 31 October, the day that is traditionally set aside for the celebration of Halloween. Many people have carefully prepared the costumes that they will wear to Halloween parties and trick-or-treating. Some have even decorated their houses to give the gruesome effect of a haunted place with a friendly warning to visitors on this ghoulish night to beware. Included in the fun celebration are scary movies and stories about ghosts who roam about causing mischief and terrorizing the neighborhood on Halloween night. Who are you gonna call if you should encounter one of these “ghosts”? You guessed it, Ghostbusters!

TREN - Ghostbusters TributeNow, just in time for Halloween 2016, Richard Williams, Taylor Miranda, Eliza Smith, and Nate Young, collectively known as the band TREN, have released an original song tribute to Ghostbusters. The music video was published on their YouTube channel on 28 October 2016 and has already garnered more than 1,500 views. The 2:29 excellent video reminds us that the task at hand is too big for 911 to handle. There is only one elite force capable of handling those pesky ghosts that are attempting to take over the neighborhood – Ghostbusters!

About the song, LDS Living.com reports, “TREN, a group composed of LDS artists, put together an original song inspired by the popular movie Ghostbusters. This is one fun, spooky song you might want to bust out at your Halloween party this year.” The band wrote, “We decided October would be a great month to release something very different from anything we have ever done before. Branching out in a fun retro style, we made an original song attributing the Ghostbusters franchise!”

Many of us will recall the original Ghostbusters movie released in the United States on 8 June 1984. The film starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis as three eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis co-star as a client and her neighbor, and Ernie Hudson as the Ghostbusters’ first recruit. In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film launched the Ghostbusters media franchise, which includes a 1989 sequel, Ghostbusters II, two animated television series, The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters, and several video games. And, a reboot of the original movie, also titled Ghostbusters, was released on 15 July 2016, by Columbia Pictures.
