China bans Ghostbusters, et al.

My other headline choice was “They ARE afraid of no ghosts!” But them my grammar alarm went off and I had to skip it.

Long story short, the Chinese government has banned all movies with ghosts, monsters, aliens, and pretty much anything they broadly categorize as being designed to “terrorize the senses.”

While there is no specific list of movies (the government has ordered filmmakers, video store owners, and local party members to self-regulate), by definition, Ghostbusters is out – after all, the film’s title there is “Fearless Ghost Catching Team That Doesn’t Fear Death.”
