|“I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood, something that could never, ever possibly destroy us.” You have to give Ray credit, that is definitely the least threatening giant paranormal aparition to ever stomp through New York.

Interesting trivia about Dan Aykroyd (who played Ray): Both his parents were Spiritists, which imbued him with a fascination for all things occult and paranormal growing up. This influenced him not only in making Ghostbusters, but in his less successful projects like 1991’s Nothing But Trouble.
