You know how the line goes: If there's something strange in your neighborhood, you probably live near the Kardashians. We're totally kidding! Everyone knows that if there's something strange or something weird "and it don't look good," you're gonna call the Ghostbusters.

Those four jumpsuit-wearing, proton pack-carrying heroes first appeared on movie screens 30 years ago this weekend, serving all of our supernatural elimination needs, reminding us never to cross the streams and, as the late Harold Ramis said, "turning the word 'slime' into a verb."

Haunted This Halloween? Call a Real Ghostbuster!

While the brand new movie Paranormal Activity is, er, knocking 'em dead at the box office, other ghostly spirits have been haunting us for centuries – and not all of them should be welcomed with open arms, according to experts.

Appearing on a special Halloween edition of CNN's Larry King Live Friday, a host of ghosthunters, paranormal activists and psychics – as well as ghost victim Joan Rivers and Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd and his séance authority father, Peter Aykroyd – debunked the disbelievers, often with jaw-dropping stories.

Rivers delivered a seriously convincing account about how a malicious spirit was haunting her New York apartment – keeping the place cold, causing havoc with the electrical power and scaring her dogs from entering the residence. When she told her elevator man what was going on, he said, "Sounds like Mrs. Spencer [the former occupant] is back."
