Nothing involving weird japanese people please!!!

OK, here is one I thought of the other day.

The Collectors

It is about a very advanced race that has the "collecting" gene, wherein one accumulates as much as collects in a formal way.

So what they do is go from planet to planet and collect all of the dna of all individuals that have lived of the dominant species and clone them so they are all part of their collection at once.

They say you should write what you know, so why don't you write about being a dick?

I am kicking one around about a the cursed movie. People who come across copies of it end up dead. It was thought the last copy of it went up in a fire in the 1960s. Until one shows up...

The twist is it isn't really cursed. But something got captured in the background of a shot that someone didn't want seen (haven't decided on the details of that yet). So someone has been murdering people and destroying copies for 60 years
