'The Silence Of The Lambs' House Is Up For Sale In Time For Halloween

'The Silence Of The Lambs' House Is Up For Sale In Time For Halloween

The creepy house where Buffalo Bill tortured and killed his victims in horror classic Silence of the Lambs is up for sale - just in time for Halloween.

Listed by 'The Sisters' Eileen Allan and Shannan Assad, the property in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, is being marketed for an asking price of $298,500.

We know what you're thinking: is there a killing pit in the basement? Take the video tour below to find out:

The three-floor Princess Anne Victorian house was the home of crazed serial killer Jame Gumb AKA Buffalo Bill (played by Ted Levine) in the 1992 hit horror, which scooped seven Academy Awards.

From the ominous dance scene - in which Buffalo Bill is seen wearing one of his victim's scalps (shudder) - to the famous line "It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again", the property formed the back drop to some of the film's most haunting moments.

With its cinema connections, the property is likely to receive a lot of attention from prospective buyers.

It has the potential to be turned into a popular themed Air BnB rental or tourist attraction, if the buyer did not wish to live in the house themselves.

We're hoping buyers don't have to lotion themselves up before entry. Expect "hello, Clarice" jokes on arrival.
