Spectre, Alabama

spectre Spectre, Alabama was a custom movie set, built for Tim Burton's fantasy film Big Fish. The set is located on an island in a river outside of Montgomery, Alabama.

During the movie, Edward Bloom, played by both Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney visited the hidden town twice. Once he was too early, the other time, he was too late. To the left is a still photo from the movie showing the town of Spectre before the "outsiders" came and ruined it.

Today the set sits derelict on a private island. Most of the outbuildings have collapsed or been burned over time. The movie magic has begun to wear thin, some of the Spanish Moss covered trees are exposing their Styrofoam, showing they too are just part of the set.

Notice, this movie set sits on a private island. You will need permission from the land owners to visit.
