1984 saw the release of a ‘Ghostbuster’, a film that quickly became a classic. News has come that will have fans more excited than Slimer when he sees food, never before seen footage has been discovered!
Yesterday, Ghost Corps, a division of Columbia Pictures devoted to everything ‘Ghostbuster’, posted a photo of three film reels, each marked with hand-written notes. Ghost Corps is headed by none other than Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman.

One of the reels is titled “Fort Detmerring” and is suspected to contain the sought after deleted scene where Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd) gets intimate with a beautiful ghost. The only reason that fans know that the scene exists is that a still surfaced when the film was originally released. Why the scene didn’t make it into the film I don’t know.

Ghostbusters Wikia says this about the scene:

Ray Stantz is in the Fort Detmerring Single Officers’ Quarters, a painstakingly restored period room with a four poster bed, writing table and wardrobe hung with uniforms. Ray tries on an officer’s uniform and models in front of a full-length mirror, striking a few heroic poses. He then tests out the bed and quickly falls asleep from exhaustion. A uniform sleeve moves slightly. A sabre in its sheath begins to tap lightly against the open doorsash. A phosphorescent light streaked out in between gaps in the clothing, casting patterns over the room. Ray’s P.K.E. Meter goes off. Stantz rolled over. From inside the attire, a pink mist rose up and took on a human form. It hovered above Ray and seems to look over Ray. Ray, still asleep, rolled onto his back. The mist slithered through the curtains of the bed post and slowly descended. The ghost appears to be a beautiful young woman. She is face to face with Ray then moves down past his waist. Ray wakes up and props himself up. The ghost vanished. Ray’s belt is undone and his zipper slowly opened. Ray’s confusion turns to pleasure. Meanwhile, Winston Zeddemore is walking in the corridor outside smoking a cigarette. He heard voices and went up to the door. Winston asked Ray if everything was okay. Ray quickly yells, “Later, Man!!” Winston shrugged and slunk away.

What is on the other two reels is a mystery, but hopefully, the footage will be released soon. We will keep you posted.
