connecticut stop of the day

the witch's dungeon

Museum pays homage to actors and artists behind movie monsters

BRISTOL, Conn. --A visit to any party store can outfit a haunted house, and it only takes a tractor to make a hay ride, but it takes a particularly ghoulish personality to create Frankenstein's monster, bring the creature out of the Black Lagoon or put the Phantom of the Opera on stage.
The souls who brought the world's most famous movie monsters to life are the focus of a museum in Bristol. Here, in a residential neighborhood 20 miles southwest of Hartford, the creator of the Witch's Dungeon Classic Movie Museum pays homage to the actors and makeup artists behind the ghoulish characters that have haunted childhood memories.........

(by the way, not only have i never been here, i've never even knew it existed. i'm going to make a stop that's for sure)
