Witch's Dungeon Classic Movie Museum

This is the life work of local artist Cortlandt Hull, who as an ill child fell in love with old horror movies. With the help of his dad they built a shed and would bring in neighbors and friends at Halloween to see his art. Over the years he has become friends with many Hollywood movie legends, and has grown to be an artist of very high caliber. The Dungeon is not a 'haunted house' attraction, but is museum quality work, containing original props and costumes from classic horror and sci-fi movies.

A hint at its popularity is that on evenings that it is open the wait can be over two hours, and people come back year after year. Since it first opened in 1966, this will be the 40th anniversary.
