Can't wait to catch the "Ghostbusters" reboot with women in the lead roles? No worries. Thanks to a group of middle schoolers, you can already get a glimpse of a reasonable facsimile.

In "GhostBOSters," students participating in the Real to Reel Filmschool at Raw Arts Works decided to flip all the roles, putting tween and teen girls in the parts made popular by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, while boys took on the supporting parts originally played by Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts.

If there's something strange in your neighborhood, these are definitely the girls to call — despite their not-so-powerful-looking proton packs and their pocket-sized car. After all, the kids might not have had the budget of the blockbuster '80s flick, but they more than made up for it with pure commitment to the gag. 

Just take a look at their work side-by-side with the original trailer to fully appreciate the ghostbustin' effort.
