A scene from "Ghostbusters: Afterlife." (Sony Pictures/TNS)


Rated PG-13 for supernatural action and some suggestive references.

What it’s about: A fourth sequel to the slacker comedy about busting ghosts, this time with the next generation tackling the spectral presence (and intergenerational legacies) in rural Oklahoma.

The kid attractor factor: This is aimed squarely at the kiddos, as a next generation Amblin Entertainment style adventure.

Good lessons/bad lessons: What lies in the family history just might surprise you. Follow your intuition and remember that family is stronger together.

Violence: Some action sequences, careening car chases, scary ghost attacks, etc.

Language: None

Sex: Some oblique references

Drugs: None

Parents’ advisory: Too action-oriented and violent for little kids but okay for older kids and teens.
