As Halloween approaches, the Ghostbusters are overworked – something is rattling the spirit world’s cage, and Egon thinks a seventh-century Irish relic on display at a museum might be to blame. Goblin-like creatures activate the relic in a ritual, releasing the spirit of Samhain, who quickly claims all of the spirits and undead of New York City as his personal minions – including Slimer. Clocks and watches around the world begin to slow, and Egon deduces that Samhain intends to bring time to a stop so that Halloween night – his night – will never end. Worse yet, Egon has a plan that requires him to send Ray, Peter and Winston into harm’s way so that he can shed some light on Samhain’s scheme.
Cast: Arsenio Hall (Winston Zeddemore), Maurice LaMarche (Dr. Egon Spengler), Lorenzo Music (Peter Venkman), Laura Summer (Janine Melnitz), Frank Welker (Dr. Raymond Stantz / Slimer), Bill Martin (Samhain), Julie Bennett (Cynthia Crawford)
Notes: The episode prominently features the song “Midnight Action”, performed by Tahiti featuring Tyren Perry and Tonya Townsend; the featured songs in the first season all originated from the official soundtrack album for the series. Samhain returns in several later episodes.
