Des Sampson asks the new all-female Ghostbusters team whether they have been spooked by the experience

Remaking Ghostbusters, one of the most beloved, iconic films of the 80s, shouldn't have been a scary experience.

However, when Director Paul Feig decided to reboot the comic-horror franchise with an all-female cast of Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, in the lead roles made famous by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, the late Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, it provoked a backlash from fans of the original.

Aykroyd is an executive producer and most of the original cast have cameos in the remake. But how have the new crew coped with the fuss?
