  • A cult uses a ancient book to call a evil demon named Cathulhu to life. And its up to the Ghostbusters and a pretty Librarian to stop them.

    9.5
    This is a very interesting episode. The drawings and colors are darker than normal. The drawings of locations are also more realistic than normal. The buildings and such look like fine paintings. The story has an old movie feel, like out of a creepy "sherlock holmes" film. The cult is also reminiscent of a cult from a horror film. The story is strong which carries us past some of the plot holes and the rather coincidental and multiple endings. There is also a "Scoby-Doo," type ending in which a villain is unmasked to everyone's surprise. As I said earlier the story is strong and the character dialogue is top notch. Peter is at his wise-cracking best. The Octopus creatures in the sewer are also quite scary. A fine episode.moreless

    • Cthulu is normally depicted as winged, green and scaly, but when summoned in the show, he is depicted as orange with no wings. Also, his head is shaped differently than his normal depictions.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (The Ghostbusters are researching on a way to stop Cthulu)
      Winston: This is pointless! I say we wait for Thku... Chicku...whatever his name is! When he shows up, let's blast him!
      Peter: Winston's got a point. Something that looks like Godzilla wearing an octopus hat won't be hard to find.

    • Peter: I should have listened to my Uncle Alf and gone into the hardware business.

    • Winston: Cthulu... I've heard of him. He's bad, right?
      Egon: He makes Gozer look like Little Mary Sunshine.

    • Peter: I just hope Ray doesn't find another phantom librarian...
      Ray: You're never gonna let me live that down, are you?

    • Ray: I'll bet the copyright page [of the Necronomicon] alone has a PKE valence of 9.9!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)
