Yeah. I'm a Bill Murray fan. But you know what? So are you. And so, when I heard about the "Epic Battle" contest MoviePilot is running... I had an idea.

The Disaster: Nazi Ghosts!!!


I feel like I'm going to regret writing this...

We all thought we had stopped them in World War 2. And... we were essentially right. But they're back. An army of Nazi ghosts, led by Hitler (obviously), is preparing to launch an attack on the planet, and only 5 people stand in its way:

The Team, part 1: The Ghostbusters


Who were YOU gonna call?
Who were YOU gonna call?

The Ghostbusters, as the only people who have weapons that work on the ghost Nazis, are going to have to be the front line of defense for the world. The ghost Nazis (this will probably be the only chance I ever get to type "ghost Nazis", so I'm gonna do it as much as possible) have chosen Washington DC as their first site, to make America an example for the rest of the world. The year is 1993, and it's been 4 years since the Ghostbusters last stopped any major occult menaces, so they may be out of practice, but they'll ghostbust until the second part of the team kicks his plan into action...

The Team, Part 2: Phil Connors (from Groundhog Day)

This is gonna end well.
This is gonna end well.

Now, with a ghost Nazi army attacking, the obvious question is why they didn't do this back in 1945. What's changed? The answer lies in a bank vault in Washington DC:

No, wait, hear me out.
No, wait, hear me out.

The Tablet was used by some dumbasses in London to create a gateway to the Underworld, which is how I'm pretty sure it works, although I didn't watch the last Night at the Museum movie, so I could be wrong. The Nazi ghosts burst through, took the tablet, and stuck it in a bank so nobody could take it and close the portal. While the Ghostbusters stave off the Nazis, someone needs to break into the vault and steal the tablet. Now, they're only going to get one chance at this before the Nazis take the capital, so even the best thief in the world can't be considered, in case they fail. Besides, they'd need time to case the joint. However, in a bizarre coincidence, the ghost Nazis chose to invade on February 2nd, 1993.

Phil Connors is stuck in a time loop on that day. He can case the joint for weeks, wake back up, and have the same amount of time to start over. It'll take him about 4 hours to get to Washington from Punxsutawney, and he can go from there. He has infinite time to carry out his heist.

The Survivor: Connors


A noble sacrifice.
A noble sacrifice.

The Ghostbusters fight valiantly, saving many lives, but are eventually overrun. Phil Connors eventually manages to close the gateway to the underworld, which, as it makes him a good person, shakes him free of the time loop. His life is now his.

After 5 years, the Ghostbusters are forgotten.
