From Agent With Style: "When the Ghostbusters are summoned to investigate a haunted house where a man disappeared, they never dreamed they were about to step into an ancient prophecy that they were designed to fulfill. Forced to deal with echoes of their deadliest cases and separated out into different times, they struggle to save the world from a new threat that must be stopped both in the past and the present."

From a flyer: "More than fifty years after Cletus Vanderberg mysteriously vanished from the tower of his Staten Island mansion, strange things are happening there. When the handyman disappears, the Ghostbusters are summoned to discover what is happening. An ancient prophecy in an old book describes incidents in the Ghostbusters' lives. What purpose must they play in fulfilling it as a powerful mirror swallows them one by one? Why is Ray transparent? Will Peter survive the corridor between dimensions? Does Winston know enough Latin to solve the prophecy? Can Egon defeat the Old One from the realm beyond the mirror? With each man stranded in a different time, how can they work together to save the world?"
