About

We’re Ready to Entertain You!

The Minions of Gozer know Ghostbusters. And they wanna show it to you. But first, hold this marshmallow. Got it? Great! Taking their cue from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the Minions of Gozer is Ghostbusters like you’ve never seen it before. With your favorite unseen moments from the movie, like that time that Egon tried to drill a hole through his head. And the undersea, unexplained mass sponge migration! Ain’t afraid of no ghost? Great! Be a part of the show! Fry like an egg on Sigourney Weaver’s counter, go to jail with the Ghostbusters, and cheer them on while they fight the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and save New York City! Don’t forget your raincoat, because you might get slimed! The Minions of Gozer are ready to entertain you!


What is a shadowcast?

According to the Urban Dictionary, a shadowcast is “a group of people that performs a movie in front of a screen while that movie is playing; they essentially pantomime the movie. Most often seen during showings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Shadowcasts are usually the main attraction of a midnight movie party/experience; there are also pre-show performances, contests and prizes, and sometimes even dance parties.


Who else is doing this?

The New York City Rocky Horror Picture Show shadows Rocky and successfully brings the midnight party to Chelsea Clearview Cinemas every Friday and Saturday night. REPO! The Genetic Opera and shadowcasts of Hedwig and the Angry Inch are also performed in various venues in and around NYC. No one, however, is doing what we’re doing, which is to bring the midnight movie party culture to a family-friendly comedy classic which also happens to have a massive “cult” following, and dedicated fans up and down the East Coast and across the country.


Why are you doing this?

There’s nothing quite like seeing Ghostbusters on the big screen. A summer in New York City just isn’t complete without it. We don’t want to wait for children’s movie series and once-in-a-blue-moon rereleases. Our show brings our favorite movie to the screen more often and surrounds fans in an immersive experience which encourages them to suit up, geek out and interact with each other and the movie.


What have you got that no one else has?

Besides a completely original performance, we have lots of things that no one else has, including a Slimer puppet (capable of “sliming” the audience) custom-built by Jay Tyson, professional puppeteer and puppet maker for 12 years. We have proton packs that shoot silly string. We have access to a six-foot Stay Puft Marshmallow Man designed and built by Kyle Pasciutti. Most importantly, we have a cast of brilliant and dedicated performers with producing, directing and improv experience, and backgrounds in media, modeling and shadowcasting in the NYC and NJ area. Minions have trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade and HB Studios and have appeared off-off Broadway, on HBO series and in TV commercials. And all of them have a special connection to the classic Manhattan movie.
