Town of Spectre

Spectre is a fictional town in the 2003 Tim Burton film “Big Fish”. In the movie, Edward Bloom takes an abandoned path through a haunted forest where he eventually comes upon a small town. The town has no roads lead or cut through Spectre. It contains rows of homes and businesses which lead up to a white church down the middle of them.

Built specifically for the film, the movie set is still standing, situated on a small island not far from Montgomery, Alabama. Though it is private property, the owners have recently started allowing people to visit the island and even camp there as long as a small payment is made at the gate.

Over the years, many of the buildings have either collapsed due to neglect or have been destroyed by fire. The buildings that remain are mostly just facades that are either completely empty or used to house goats.
