Subway Ghost Rats were a group of ghosts that appeared after Rowan North broke the barrier between the living and the dead. They appeared in the 2016 movie.


During the madness following the invasion of ghosts, a mischief of ghost rats flew out of the 50th Street Subway Station entrance at a female passerby. She didn't like them at all and cringed.


  • The "Ghost Rat" was a common ghost design in Mattel Ghostbusters Toy Line for the 2016 toys.
  • The Subway rat ghosts were worked on by effects house Iloura.[1]
  • The 50th Street subway entrance that the rats emerge from was actually a prop placed outside 125 High Street in Boston.[2]
