Since it seems like we may never see a Ghostbusters 3 on the big screen (and honestly, we’re okay with that), this cool new Claymation short might be the next best thing – particularly if you love our ghost-busting pals from the original film and the work of Quentin Tarantino.
Lee Hardcastle has crafted Ghostbusters Volume 3 – a short film that puts Peter Venkman and company into animated form, while re-creating scenes from Quentin Tarantino’s filmography. Yes, it’s a little random as far as the high concept goes, but Hardcastle (who’s work has appeared in projects like The ABCs of Death) makes it all work in a surprisingly entertaining way.
The filmmaker leaves no stone unturned in his quest to skewer all things Tarantino – there are not only nods to Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but also little homages to Death Proof and Kill Bill amongst others. It’s a deliciously nerdy mash-up that will appeal to Ghostbusters fanatics as well as Tarantino obsessives. Plus it has Claymation! It’s like a nerdy cornucopia of awesomeness.
