Spook Central

Though it seems like someone down in Australia is having a dry laugh, on a slow news day like this, we're willing to entertain this teaser trailer for an independent documentary called Spook Central. Bloody Disgusting was sent this sneak preview from director Ivo Shandor which takes a seemingly in-depth look at Ghostbusters, not unlike Room 237, which dives into the themes and making of The Shining. The teaser contains brief pieces of analysis of the 1984 film, and while there are some interesting facts and observations from the voiceover, we're not sure this is really meant to be a genuine examination of the film.

Here's the teaser trailer for Ivo Shandor's Spook Central, via Bloody Disgusting:

The discussion of the Columbia Pictures logo, which plays before countless other films without any real meaning, seems to be the dead giveaway. But the links between smoking and the banishing of the supernatural seem quite silly. However, the latter points in this trailer are somewhat intriguing. This could be an honest over analysis of a classic 1984 supernatural horror comedy, or maybe a dry, satire piece dissecting a film in a manner that no one ever thought of before. Either way, more films should be scrutinized this closely (and genuinely) to make for some interesting discussion. What do you think?

    I hear Ivo Shandor has been working on this film, with his very, very devoted crew, since 1920.

    That looks absolutely ridiculous- trying to delve way too deep here. "If you didn't think this film was about obesity...".... The worst kind of bullshit made up to make a bullshit documentary.
  • A Belafonte
    So wait....who really directed this documentary? Ivo Shandor? Really? Come on.

    Yep, over analysis for sure, but I want to see it. You could over analyze the "Real Ghostbusters" cartoon and I would still watch it! Yay Ghostbusters!!!

    Hey, best line in the movie... Venkman to Ray, "You're right, no human BEING would stack books like this."

      Not bad, but there are too many good and memorable lines in the original movie to choose a destructor.
  • cobrazombie
    I hope to Zuul that guy's voice isn't narrating the whole documentary. What a load of crap.
