The Milton-Union Public Library has a remarkable display of horror movie collectibles on display thismonth. Come and look at the amazing masks, action figures, comic books, magazines, and miniature movieprops that a local resident volunteered to share with the community. The resident (who prefers to remainmysterious and unnamed) was inspired to start his collection after meeting with local celebrity, Dr. Creep,who was a fixture on Saturday horror TV in the Miami Valley. Barry Hobart (aka Dr. Creep) had even of-fered to preside over a “themed” wedding for this movie aficionado before Mr. Hobart’s death in early2011. Our collector’s fascination with this film genre grew beyond its local origins. Many of the autographsin the collection were collected by attending Horrorhound and Cinema Wasteland Conventions or Expos.Gear up for Halloween! Get some interesting costume ideas by looking at the spooky movie props inthe library’s display case.If you have something you would like to share with the community, please stop by the library, locatedat 560 S. Main St., West Milton; call 937-698-5515; or visit:
