Plot

The Ghostbusters lined up at the foot of the stairs to the Temple of Gozer. The temple doors opened and there was a bright light. Gozer suddenly appeared between Zuul and Vinz Clortho in a pre-chosen form. Ray realized Gozer took a female form. Gozer petted Vinz on the head. He purred. Egon identified it as Gozer. Winston thought Gozer was a man. Egon stated it was whatever it wanted to be. Peter remarked whatever it was, it had to get by them. Ray agreed. Peter told Ray to go get her. Ray silently realized he fell for it. Peter gave him a nod. Ray took several steps up then addressed Gozer by name. Gozer turned to Ray. Ray stated that as a duly designated representative of the city, county and state of New York, he ordered it to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to its place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension. Peter was satisfied and thanked Ray. Gozer asked Ray if he was a god. Peter nodded "yes" to Ray. Ray replied, "No." Gozer turned its upper torso and arms back toward the temple then told them to die. Gozer fired lightning from its fingertips at the Ghostbusters. They yelled out. Zuul and Vinz watched. They were shot across the roof and barely clung to the edge of the building. The crowd of civilians down on the street could see the lightning and exclaimed. As they gathered themselves, Winston looked down at Ray and told him when someone asked him if he was a god, he should say, "Yes!" Ray nodded. Peter declared this chick was toast. They marched up to the temple side by side. Ray placed his Trap down.

Peter asked them if they got their stick. They took out their particle throwers and yelled, "Holding!" Gozer crouched down and snarled. Peter shouted, "Heat 'em up!" They switched on the throwers then shouted "Smoking!" Peter yelled, "Make 'em hard!" They shouted, "Ready!" Peter declared they were going to show "prehistoric bitch" how they did things downtown. He gave the word. They fired at Gozer. It growled then double flipped across the air. It landed on the altar outside the structure. Peter remarked she was a nimble little minx. Egon suggested they better go full stream. Ray shouted to aim for the flat top. They blasted her again. Gozer simply vanished. Peter quipped that was not so hard. Ray concluded they neutronized it and caused a complete particle reversal. Winston proclaimed, "And we have the tools. We have the talent!" Peter declared it was "Milla time!" Peter held out his right hand. Ray and Winston were gleeful and did the hand-stack. Egon looked at a Gamma Rate Meter and told Ray things looked extraordinarily bad. Ray was alarmed. Winston wondered what was happening. An earthquake rocked the temple. Egon told them to look out. Boulders and debris fell. They took cover by the altar. Civilians screamed and ran away to avoid the debris.

The disembodied voice of Gozer made its presence known and listed its titles then ordered them to choose and perish. The Ghostbusters stood up. Ray asked Gozer to clarify. Gozer explained they had to choose the form of the Destructor. Peter understood and found it cute. He explained to the others whatever they thought of like J. Edgar Hoover, J. Edgar Hoover would appear and destroy them. He told everyone to empty their heads and not think of anything. They had one shot. Gozer declared the choice was made. Peter protested. He asked Egon. Egon thought of nothing. He asked Winston. Winston asserted his mind was totally blank. Peter stated he chose nothing. Peter, Egon, and Winston turned and looked at Ray. Ray took a few steps back. Ray insisted he couldn't help it and it just popped in there. Peter inquired what he thought of. Ray tried to explain himself. Stomping and screaming from the streets interrupted Ray. Egon spotted something and yelled.

Trivia

Ghostbusters

  • The Temple of Gozer set was on Stage 16 in Burbank Studios in Los Angeles while the exteriors were filmed at 55 Central Park West in New York.
  • John DeCuir devised and supervised the construction of the Temple of Gozer set which cost around $1 million. It would be famous for being one of the biggest indoor sets ever built in Hollywood.[1] DeCuir prepared a small foam core study model. Using a makeshift viewer, Ivan Reitman and Richard Edlund used the model to start plotting out camera angles.[2][3]
  • 40 matte paintings were created with photos and concept drawings. The enhanced skyline around the temple was done through animated lightning effects and injecting clouds of paint into a giant water tank.[4][5]
  • The whole rooftop sequence took a few weeks to film on a stage.[6]
  • The power requirements for the set were so intense that during filming, other parts of the studio had to be shut down whenever full illumination was used.[7]
  • A giant cyclorama encircled more than three-quarters of the temple set and which could be lit for either daylight or nighttime exposures. Shots that needed optical enhancements were filmed from a steady, rigid platform. All other shots were taken from a Chapman crane.[8][9]
  • The portal was plexiglass. To simulate smoke, dry fog was pumped during photography. Concealed operators manipulated the Terror Dogs while they rested on the pedestals.[10]
  • The seismic disturbance caused by Gozer was done practically with sound effects and stagehands throwing rubble.[11]
  • The ornamental lamps affixed to the exterior of the Shandor Building appear on the ex-Cardassian space station in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Fascination" (from Season 3). The lamps were even immortalized in the Star Trek Online video game.[12]
  • According to Dan Aykroyd, Gozer was based on several things - a Gozer Chevrolet dealership in upstate New York and was a name related to a documented haunting in England, the one "Poltergeist" was based on. During the haunting, the name Gozer appeared on walls and things.[13]
  • In the original premise for the movie, Gozer was originally conceived as taking the form of Ivo Shandor. Gozer was originally supposed to look like Bert Parks. In later Aykroyd-Ramis collaborations, a Richard Young-type. Paul Reubens was to play this version and described as being a kindly looking man in a nondescript suit and tie.
    • In the August 5, 1983 draft:
      • On page 122, Gozer is described as a "thin, hollow-cheeked, distinguished-looking man in his early sixties. His eyes are burning red pinholes."
      • On page 123, Winston likens him to Robert Young. Peter identifies him as Gozer. Ray goes up the stairs on his own to talk to Gozer.
    • In the October 7, 1983 draft:
      • On page 85, Ray alone suspects Shandor really is Gozer.
  • Ivan Reitman thought it might be more interesting if Gozer was rather androgynous-looking, someone like David Bowie or Grace Jones.[14][15]
  • At first Harold Ramis didn't think the androgynous look would work but later realized Gozer choosing a contemporary form made sense.[16]
  • Anna Carlisle, a punk rock singer, was offered the role of Gozer but she declined.[17]
  • During auditions, Slavitza Jovan played Gozer as a timeless figure and an "almost arrogant Roman empress" who felt regular humans were beneath her.[18][19]
  • Due to Slavita Jovan's Slavic accent, Gozer's voice was dubbed by Paddi Edwards.[20]
  • Ivan Reitman was concerned Jovan's accent would come off as funny. Six to seven voices were considered. Reitman tried a traditional 'voice of God' but he thought it was too boring. He tried an effeminate male voice with mixed results. Ultimately, a very low Exorcist type female voice was chosen.[21]
  • Winston's "If someone asks you if you're a god, you say yes!" line was improvised when the scene was filmed. Harold Ramis came up with it.[22][23]
  • An early version of Winston's "If someone asks you if you're a god, you say yes!" line appears in the August 5, September 30, and October 7, 1983 drafts drafts. It is, "You should've said "yes!" He might have been willing to negotiate."
  • When Ray pulls his thrower the wire loom ends up on the wrong side of his arm and ends up wrapped around his wrist. It is still wrapped around his wrist right before it is said, "aim for the flat-top".
  • At least two of the cyclotron lights on the packs worn by Egon and Ray were burned out during the Gozer fight scene.
  • Gozer's double-flip was done by a stunt double at Entertainment Effects Group.[24][25]
  • Peter invokes the Miller High Life slogan, "It's Milla Time!"
  • Right before Egon says, "This looks extraordinarily bad," the other end of his leg hose was slid through his pack frame and is clearly sticking out near his right elbow.
  • In the August 5, September 30, and October 7 drafts, Egon uses his P.K.E. Meter after Gozer vanishes.
  • Going off Jovan's accent, in the "Choose or perish" dialogue, Bill Murray did a take where he responded 'Jews and berries? I don't understand.'[26]
  • When Gozer causes debris to rain down on the people down below, in reality, the hundreds of extras were being hit by bits of styrofoam released from a giant crane.[27]
  • Peter mentions J. Edgar Hoover, the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
  • In the drafts, the example given for a hypothetical destructor form is Roberto Clemente, a Puerto Rican professional baseball right fielder who played 18 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
    • In the August 5 and September 30, 1983 drafts, on page 126 and 125 respectively, Peter gives the Roberto Clemente example.
    • In the October 7, 1983 draft, on page 87, Ray gives the Roberto Clemente example.
  • In all drafts but the final, Ray protests nobody thought of anything then it is revealed Stay Puft was conjured up by Winston instead of Ray.[28][29]

For one, there's a Gozer Chevrolet dealership in upstate New York. A little more to the point, though, is the fact taht Gozer was a name that related to a documented haunting in England -- the one Poltergeist was based on, in fact. During this particular haunting, the name Gozer appeared mysteriously throughout the house, written on walls and things. So we figured we might as well take something that had been reported in the public domain as an actual occurrence and use it in the film as our main demon and supernatural force."
  14. Shay, Don (November 1985). Making Ghostbusters, p. 170 annotation. New York Zoetrope, New York NY USA, ISBN 0918432685. Paragraph reads: "Appearing before the Ghostbusters as a kind of New Wave demon, the character of Gozer had passed through more drastic conceptual variations than any other creature in the film. Described in Dan Aykroyd's script as looking like Bert Parks, and in later collaborations with Harold Ramis as a Robert Young-type character, Gozer - in its final form - resembled neither."
  15. Shay, Don (November 1985). Making Ghostbusters, p. 170 annotation. New York Zoetrope, New York NY USA, ISBN 0918432685. Joe Medjuck says: "Ivan thought it might be more interesting if Gozer was rather androgynous-looking - someone like David Bowie. That idea led logically to the consideration of androgynous-looking female rock stars - someone like Grace Jones would have been perfect. Unfortunately, by the time we came up with this concept, it was too late to sign on a big name. We did retain the basic idea, however, which is why Gozer appears in the form of a woman."
  16. Shay, Don (November 1985). Making Ghostbusters, p. 170 annotation. New York Zoetrope, New York NY USA, ISBN 0918432685. Harold Ramis says: "I was not convinced that it was going to work - Gozer in five-inch spike heels and a plastic bubble suit. But, considering the fact that Gozer could take any form it wanted, it made sense that it might choose to materialize as this very contemporary figure. And there is something rather terrifying and slightly sadistic in some of these New Wave styles. Ultimately, I think Ivan's instinct paid off. Having Gozer as a woman set up some very funny lines - things like 'This chick is toast' and 'Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.'"
  17. Harold Ramis (2005). Ghostbusters- Commentary (2005) (DVD ts. 1:26:20-1:26:33). Columbia TriStar Home Video. Harold Ramis says: "Remember you offered it to Anna Carlisle, who was a punk rock singer at the time? Her complaint was 'No, the chicks in this movie are just to be had!' "

Ivan Reitman says: "We tried for a long time to use the actress' real voice but because of her accent, I was afraid it might come off as being funny. After that, we went through six or seven different voices. I did one myself, but it wasn't very good. I tried a traditional 'voice of God' approach, but that was boring. I tried an effeminate male voice which was okay on some of the lines, but really sounded silly on others. Finally I decided on a very low Exorcist type female voice which - although it had obviously been used before - still worked out the best."
