This wasn’t great – especially as it was written by Straczynski. On the surface it is fun enough but just how thick are the Ghostbusters? It seems, all the way through, that the viewer knew what was happening when they couldn’t work it out until spelled out to them. Also the hybridisation lore seemed funky, and why didn’t the vampires know they had captured the town from werewolves? It didn’t add up, to me at least. Nevertheless, it is vampires in the Ghostbusters franchise and that has to be worth something. 3.5 out of 10.
