Tales from Behind the Counter by Carter Johnson
It's 1999 in Taylorsville, and high school graduate Morgan Kemp just needs a summer job to keep her parents off her back until she moves to New York City in the fall. It just so happens that Video Flashback is hiring. Morgan figures it's better than slinging sandwiches at the mall, right? But she couldn't be more wrong. Assigned to the night shift, Morgan meets her new manager, Richie, a movie nerd who loves his job a little too much. What follows is a summer that Morgan will never forget: a series of strange interactions with odd customers who may or may not exist; a monster living behind the store; videotapes filled with footage of horrible things; and a file cabinet full of movies that shouldn't exist. Will she survive the summer, or will Video Flashback claim another employee's life?
