According to Ghostbusters the world will end on 14th February 2016

Forget roses and teddy bears – and prepare for the apocalypse


The end of the world is nigh, folks. Or at least, according to Ghostbusters II.


For those of you who’ve cast this sequel to the depths of your memory, here’s a refresher. 

Way back in 1989, the genius minds of Harold Ramis and Dan Ackroyd conjured the not-so-genius Ghostbusters II. The film included one particular scene where Bill Murray’s Dr. Peter Venkman invites a woman onto his talk show, The World of the Psychic. 

Venkman’s guest has some bad news to impart – our world will come to an end on Valentine’s Day 2016. Not because you’ve failed to get a date and are facing an evening of Netflix and no chill. No, because an alien beckoned her into a Holiday Inn and and told her so. Naturally.


Of course, if the world ends tomorrow we’ll never get the chance to see Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot. Let’s all clutch our teddy bears and heart-shaped lollies and hope that doesn’t happen.
