In the latest clip of the renowned movie, Paul Rudd‘s character is seen escaping from a Terror dog in a new Ghostbusters: Afterlife clip. Along with Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Logan Kim, and Celeste O’Connor, Rudd is one of the newest additions to the Ghostbusters universe.
Grooberson comes across a lone Terror Dog in a Walmart aisle, which is taking advantage of some enormous bags of pet food. He tries to back away, but his efforts are hampered when a Roomba driven by mini-Stay Puft Marshmallow Men collides with his leg, alerting the Terror Dog. Grooberson tries to get back to his car while the Terror Dog destroys clothing displays and the Walmart’s sliding doors in pursuit of him, resulting in a chase sequence. The clip concludes on a lighthearted note, with the Dog unexpectedly stopping the automobile.
Terror Dog was first introduced in the original Ghostbusters as the paranormal forms of Zuul and Vinz Clortho, Gozer’s Gatekeeper, and Keymaster, respectively. Due to their location in 550 Central Park West, which, as the Ghostbusters find, was built to house a Gozer-worshipping secret society, the two creatures ended up inhabiting New York residents, Danna Barrett and Louis Tully. As part of the process for bringing Gozer to Earth, their human hosts were briefly changed back into Terror Dogs, but Danna and Louis were restored to normal after the Ghostbusters smashed its Temple door and killed Gozer’s Stay Puft form.
Spengler’s daughter, single mother Callie, and her two children, Phoebe and Trevor, are forced to move to a small Oklahoma town after being evicted from their home in Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The family moves into an old decaying farmhouse owned by Spengler, where they discover his old Ghostbusters gear and the Ecto-1 station wagon, as well as his materials investigating mysterious occurrences in the sleepy town, which is being rocked by Earthquakes despite being located far from any fault lines. As the supernatural phenomenon worsens, Phoebe, Trevor, their new friends, and local science instructor Mr. Grooberson must rely on Spengler’s tools to save the world. Sony’s PlayStation YouTube account has published a new Ghostbusters: Afterlife clip as the film approaches its two-week mark. In the video, a horrified Paul Rudd is chased through the store and to his car by one of Gozer’s dogs, which is eating dog food in the town’s Walmart.
According to the official description, Egon was researching a local mine owned by suspected cultist Ivo Shandor, the architect of the building in the original Ghostbusters film and leader of the Cult of Gozer, and that the new film will connect directly into the 1984 Manhattan Crossrip. With the numerous previews, many speculated that Gozer might return for the forthcoming edition.
The new Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer also suggests that Rudd will be possessed at some point in the movie. Following their encounter with the Terror Dogs, Weaver and Rick Moranis’ characters become possessed by Zuul and Vinz Clortho, and with earlier trailers hinting at a potential romantic tie between Rudd and Coon’s characters, the two could unintentionally aid re-usher Gozer back into the universe. When Ghostbusters: Afterlife opens in theatres on November 19, only time will tell.
