This sweet slice of movie monster magic comes from the brilliant Ghostbusters, a film that doesn’t just scare the bejesus out of audiences but makes them laugh whilst it’s doing it. In that regard the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that’s sent to destroy New York City in the film’s final act is the perfect fit. Summoned into existence by an errant thought from Dan Aykroyd, the one time cuddly confectionary mascot is blown up to monstrous proportions and quickly sets about laying waste to Manhattan before being turned into an industrial sized S’more by the movie’s titular ghoul hunters.
