Gozer the Gozarian from Ghostbusters (1984)


Film still

The character Gozer in the film Ghostbusters is a Sumerian shape-shifting god.

This film still shows Slavitza Jovan, the actress who plays Gozer, against the backdrop of the fictitious top of the ziggurat-shaped building.

Ghostbusters is an example of the way in which references to Sumer or Babylon can unexpectedly surface in pop culture.
