A riveting examination of the underground culture devoted to the artwork of serial killers. The film focuses on two serial killer enthusiasts. Rick Staton is a funeral director in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and is the country's premier dealer of serial killer artwork. Staton has actively encouraged many serial kilers to begin painting. Tobias Allen is also a fan and creator of the controversial board game, "Serial Killer," which was banned in Canada. Together, Staton and Allen have curated several gallery shows of serial killer artwork. The documentary follows Staton and Allen on a road trip to Houston, Texas for the opening night of an art show by Elmer Wayne Henley, Jr., a participant in the notorious serial killer sex murders of 27 teens. Not surprisingly, the show provoked protests from Henley's victims' families.
