Mike works at a VHS-only video store whose cash-strapped owner cannot afford DVDs. 

Jerry is Mike's delusional friend, who destroys a nearby power substation he claims is melting his brain; he is electrocuted in the process and transforms into a human magnet.

When he visits Mike at work he demagnetizes each tape in the store. 

Rather than buy new tapes the two friends record their own low budget versions on the erased tapes. 

Their remake of Ghostbusters creates a buzz around town, and the store experiences a surge in sales.  Unfortunately, trouble awaits.
