Murderabilia is a dark, psychological drama that plunges into the seedy underbelly of a profoundly macabre market -- the buying and selling of murder-related collectibles. The film follows a compulsive collector as he tracks down a belt that was involved in the brutal murder of a young woman. The journey leads him to a reclusive online vendor -- a man whose unexpected offer forces the collector to confront the nature of his obsession.
Running just under 30 minutes, Murderabilia offers a grim, atmospheric experience that lingers in the psyche long after the credits have faded from the screen.
