The movie introduces a new type of scientific phenomenon, the "magnetic monster," which threatens the entire world. The film's plot centers around a team of scientists at the OSI (Office of Scientific Investigation) who are investigating a string of bizarre incidents that appear to be caused by some sort of magnetic force. The team is led by Dr. Jeffrey Stewart (Richard Carlson), a brilliant scientist who is skeptical about the existence of the magnetic monster.

Dr. Stewart's skepticism is soon challenged as the team uncovers more evidence of the monster's existence. They discover that the monster is a form of energy that is rapidly growing and will soon become powerful enough to destroy the entire planet. The team must race against time to find a way to neutralize the monster before it's too late.
