In the all-female reboot of the classic 1984 movie, paranormal enthusiasts Abby Yates (McCarthy) and Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), engineer Jillian Holtzmann (McKinnon) and subway worker Patty Tolan (Jones) take on New York City’s growing ghost problem. The crew drives around the Big Apple in a Cadillac version of the iconic Ecto-1 hearse, courtesy of Patty’s uncle, and use improved proton packs to fight off the slightly more HD paranormal spirits.

“I do believe in ghosts,” she tells Us. “I lived in a house in Boulder, Colorado, that every time you walked up there, everyone who walked up there said, ‘Oh, I don’t like this.’ There was just a presence.” Luckily, she had a good sense of humor about it. “Why does it keep spelling out ‘Melissa’ in blood?” she joked of her home’s phantom.
