The Supernatural Enhancements (2014) – Edgar Cantero

So last week I delighted in Edgar Canteros’ wonderful Meddling Kids, and wasn’t sure it could be topped. Then, I dug into this week’s scary ride, Cantero’s The Supernatural Enhancements.

They’re back! Ghostbusters II from 1989, is the next ghost title in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book, and it has been a long time since I actually sat and watched this one. It’s undeniable that the first film is the better one, but there are some cool things at work in the follow-up…
