Who ya gonna call when spirits decide to haunt your home? Teenagers! These talented middle-school students from Lynn, Mass. made their own gender-swapped version of the original "Ghostbusters" movie trailer as part of a filmmaking program called Real to Reel -- run by the nonprofit Raw Art Works.

This shot-for-shot remake of the "Ghostbusters" trailer was posted a few months back but has just recently been making the rounds online thanks to news of the getting an all-female cast.

Low-fi special effects, movie costumes, Lego bricks for sets and toys depicting Zuul and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man keep it real. These girls can even lip-sync perfectly with the original soundtrack, and Bill Murray's dialogue seems even funnier when it's coming from a teenage girl.

This fan trailer is even more impressive when you watch a side-by-side comparison with the original movie trailer.

The student filmmakers who worked on the trailer include Emily Silva, Isaac Dreeben, Lizzy Embick, Mia Ventola, Sidney St. Ives and Taryn Osborne.

The students also created a shot-for-shot remake of the trailer for "Rocky III." Here's hoping there's more to come. If they're taking requests, how about Gremlins for Christmas?
