Silence of the Lambs house is up for sale

Posted on

Camera 5

A Pittsburgh area house that appeared in The Silence of the Lambs is up for sale.

The three-story Victorian served as the home of serial killer Jame Gumb (Ted Levine) — otherwise known as ‘Buffalo Bill’ — in the classic 1991 thriller that also starred Jodie Foster as FBI trainee Clarice Starling and Anthony Hopkins as incarcerated cannibal Hannibal Lecter.

There’s no dungeon in the basement, but the house does have four bedrooms, a four-car garage, and in-ground pool, according to a listing on Realtor.com. The asking price is $300,000.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Scott and Barbara Lloyd, both 63, bought the home in December 1976 and were married in the foyer in February 1977. They were eating dinner one night in 1989 when a movie producer knocked on her door, said she was scouting locations for a film, and asked to take pictures of the inside of their home.

The Lloyds’ foyer and dining room appeared in the film, the report adds, and those scenes were shot over three days in 1990.

Dianne Wilk, a Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices The Preferred Realty, which listed the home, told the Tribune-Review she wouldn’t be surprised if the next owner capitalized on its notoriety.

“People love to be scared,” she said. “I could see somebody doing something fun with this.”
