‘Silence of the Lambs’: Buffalo Bill’s House Goes Up for Sale

Fictional victim-skinning serial killer Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb’s murder house has gone up for sale.

“The Silence of the Lambs” villain’s home — a four-bedroom, one bathroom Victorian house set on a 1.76-acre lot in Fayette County, Pennsylvania — has hit the market for the cool price of $300,000.

The Realtor.com listing somehow manages to both embrace and reject the movie connection simultaneously, reading, “A landmark home…featured in the ‘Silence of the Lamb’ movie” and also calling the property a “statement of taste and prosperity” and a “near-perfect expression of comfort.”

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, the 1910 Princess Anne home’s owners, Scott and Barbara Lloyd, explained how the house was used in the 1991 thriller.

“They were looking for a home in which you entered the front door and had a straight line through,” Barbara Lloyd said. “They wanted it to look like a spider web, with Buffalo Bill drawing Jodie Foster into the foyer, into the kitchen, then into the basement.”

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on who you are), the famous basement dungeon scene was filmed on a soundstage and is not an actual part of the house.
