Anyone born before the 1980s – and probably most of those who weren’t – are unlikely to have escaped watching a Rick Moranis film. The comedian played the go-to anxious nerd in some of the decade’s best-known blockbusters. However, a terrible event made him turn his back on the big screen.
The first of these movies was to send shockwaves through popular culture to this day. In 1984’s Ghostbusters, Moranis starred as Louis Tully, accountant and resident of an apartment block plagued by ghosts. Unwittingly, he himself becomes possessed by a malignant spirit.
