The film is heavy on nostalgia, because let's face it — it's beloved and even decades after its original release, people still love the spooky-comedy franchise. But what in parts is a comical update becomes bogged down by a narrative that at times is unexciting. When a mom moves her two kids to her recently deceased father's farmhouse that clearly has spirits, it takes one hour for the first big action sequence to get rolling. As they do, they are lively and fun, but overall it's more watchable than memorable. Yes, there are post-credit scenes.
