Silence of the Lambs house made famous as Buffalo Bill's lair on the market just in time for Halloween

BUFFALO Bill's house from The Silence if the Lambs is up for sale.

Film buffs and Hannibal Lecter-lovers can snap up the creepy abode in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania for $298,500.



The four-bedroom property, situated in 1.7 acres of land, was featured in the 1981 cult classic as the den of creepy cross-dressing, skin-suit crafting serial killer Buffalo Bill.

The explosive final scenes of the movie see rookie detective Clarice Starling burst into the house in a desperate attempt to rescue Bill's latest victim – who he has stashed away at the bottom of a dingy well – fortunately not a real-life feature in the home.

The house lies along the train tracks that are featured in the opening shot of the Buffalo Bill scene in the Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins-starring Oscar winner.




It boasts many original features, including the trim and hardwood floors.

There are also several reception rooms on the ground floor – most of which were used as sets, as well as a kitchen diner, which was also featured on screen during Clarice and Bill's nail-biting gun-fight.

But unlike the film the basement does not include a creepy hole with a well and a basket.

A detached garage, converted into a workspace, was once the town post office and train station.

And the property even boasts an in-ground pool.

It previously hit the market in 2016 when animal rights' group PETA offered to buy it and turn it into an ‘empathy museum’ where visitors could wear the skin of mistreated animals – like Bill's character.
