Ghostbusted Trilogy

Are these guys afraid of no ghost? No, they are not. See, it's a quote from that movie that one time?

Eddie, Seymour and Max have put together an amateur Ghostbusting business, which isn't exactly going well. Do they have what it takes to defeat the vicious Ghostmaster? (Hint: No, they don't.)

Not exactly features, nor shorts, this series of three movies were filmed quickly when we were on vacation in South Dakota for the Camp Rewind film festival every year. No one ever wanted to be in them or take them the least bit seriously and cast members would come and go. I think that lends the films a certain je ne sais quoi. Ghostbusted 3 is the only one that's actually about Ghostbusting. The others are just bizarre.
