Synopsis:
Four time travelers arrive in 1980s New York City on the run from someone called "the Slug". They follow the Ghostbusters to a job and wait until they trap the ghost of Captain Nemo before stealing the trap and teleporting away, leaving the Ghostbusters befuddled. They’re soon in for much worse when the travelers place reality shifting devices in the firehouse, locking each of the boys into a nightmare world! It’s Winston vs. monsters, Peter vs. a werewolf school, Ray vs. an alien planet, and Egon vs. nature in a barren wasteland. Even if the boys survive, they still have to deal with…the Slug!
