Whether you loved the new Ghostbusters, hated it, or found yourself somewhere in the middle, there’s no denying Paul Feig had a very distinct vision. He didn’t just update the characters for 2016, he cranked up the visuals too, with tons of lush, beautiful colors.


This VFX reel by iLoura highlights just a little of that. Here you’ll see the finishing touches that made many of the ghosts so neon and vibrant, as well as plenty of the more grounded tech used (drones and booms, for example) to get things just right.

I’ll admit, I don’t get the hate for the FX in this new Ghosbusters. People complain about “Scooby Doo ghosts” but, honestly, apart from being CG animation, the ghost pretty much follow the same designs as the original - slightly translucid and mosty of a single color ( the Librarian is purple, Slimer is Green, the blowjob lady is white, and there is at least one blue ghost in the montage after the containment unit blows up).

This movie had a lot of flaws, but for me the FX weren't one.v
