Fans of "The Silence of the Lambs" may now have the opportunity to buy the lair of one of the movie's notorious killers. A Pittsburgh-area home that was used as the filming location of the home of the skin-removing serial killer, Buffalo Bill, has been placed on the market.
The home where Jame Gumb aka Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine) kept his victims and did his dirty work in the 1991 film is for sale, according to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices The Preferred Realty. The home is listed at $300,000.
Located in Perry Township, Pennsylvania, the 1910 Princess Anne home sits on 1.76 acres of land and has four bedrooms and one full bathroom. There is also an inground pool and a large garage that can house four-plus vehicles with enough room for a workshop.
The dining room is where Buffalo had the drawer opened and fumbled with cards when Agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) pulled her gun on him as he ran away. Watch the scene below:
There's a full basement in the home, but it’s unclear if there is actually a pit in the basement as there was in the movie. The property description gives just enough information to whet our appetite: “The pit...now there is the question...is there really a pit in the basement, or is it all just movie magic? Just put on the lotion, and come see this home and find out!!!!”
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review said the house has been owned by Scott and Barbara Lloyd since December 1976. They were approached by a movie producer in 1989, who was scouting possible locations for a film. The house was ultimately chosen and the scenes were shot in three days in 1990.
TMZ reports collector's items are also included with the sale of the house. Some of the items are photos the homeowners took during filming and a "Silence of the Lambs" book signed by Foster and director Jonathan Demme.
"The Silence of the Lambs" starred Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins portrayed Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a killer known for eating his victims. Foster's character had to turn to Lecter for help in tracking down Buffalo Bill before he claimed another victim.
