Collectors

Rated NR 80 minutes 2000

Filmed in the deep South, this documentary takes us on a journey into the strange, compelling world of pop culture's fascination with murder and mayhem. Collectors focuses on two of the country's premier serial killer enthusiasts. Rick Staton, a funeral director in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has encouraged many serial killers to start painting; he was the exclusive dealer of America's most notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Staton's extensive collection includes art and artifacts from such notorious serial killers as Charles Manson, Richard Ramirez and Henry Lee Lucas. Tobias Allen, also a collector, attained national exposure for creating a controversial serial killer board game, later banned in Canada. Together, Staton and Allen have been curators of several gallery shows of serial killer art work.
