Hidden Meanings Coded Into Ghostbusters? Trailer For New Documentary, Spook Central

On the basis of this trailer, Spook Central is looking somewhat like Room 237, the recent documentary about far-flung and hell-bent viewer interpretations of The Shining. Except it isn’t about a Stanley Kubrick film, something we would expect to  attract a lot of crazy talk. It’s about Ghostbusters.

I guess anything that mentions the occult will draw a certain amount of “specialist interest.”

Here’s a free poster quote if anybody wants one:

Spook Central? Crank Central, more like.

That looks every bit as amusing as Room 237, and every bat as daffy and spurious. Scratch that – it looks twice as daffy and spurious, and Room 237 was already full of the hysterically tenuous.

I’m sure there are a lot more possibilities for this odd new subgenre yet.  Surely Wes Anderson’s OCD approaches lend themselves to this kind of “study.” And Christopher Nolan certainly has a few of the right fans.

I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody starts faking these things too, hiring voice over artists to read a prepared, possibly satirical script rather than rounding up real theorists for interviews. Especially if these films keep finding distribution.

Or maybe they’ve already begun…
