RIP Harold Ramis

Goodbye Egon. Instrumental in some of the 80's most iconic comedies. My childhood wouldn't have been quite the same without him.

This may present a conflict of interests with his most well known business.

Terrible news :( . It's been too long since I last had the Ghostbusters films on so I'll have to break out the DVD's soon.

Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

So saddened by this news. I mean genuinely shaken. His work has been such a massive part of my life. A part of my childhood dies with him.

You'll be greatly missed Harold.

Life's crazy, the creators of my fondest childhood memories are starting to die off. It's making me feel old and far less 'invincible’ than I used to.

What a sad loss, RIP to a genuine talent and provider of many a happy memories.

All the best Egon.

Ghostbusters is easily one of my top 10 favourite films of all time, although it scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. RIP :(

I'm sure they'll make an exception for him.

Absolutely gutted about this one, it feels the same as losing a Beatle, or a family member. I can't remember a time in life BEFORE Ghostbusters.

I think it would be fitting if his body was transported to the
cemetery in the Ghostbuster vehicle, Ecto 1. Wasn't it a converted hearse?

Heard about this when i woke up this morning, i really didn't want to believe it. Obviously he's well known for Ghostbusters which we all know i one of the greatest comedy films of all time, but more than that, he was fantastic in other roles like in Stripes he also wrote & directed some brilliant films like Groundhog Day and Analyze This

Some of the tributes coming out from people really sum it up, massive stars of the movie industry who worked with or were inspired by him seem utterly humbled by his talent

RIP Harold Ramis, the comedy world is a lot less funny without you
Visit www.youtube.com/replayretro . why? well erm, cos it would be awfully friendly of you to take a look i guess, you don't have to though, nobody will make you *sob sob*

Close enough - it was an ambulance.
