Go to the home of the “Silence of the Lambs” and spend the evening, life-style information
Call to all horror fans: The house in which the serial killer “Buffalo Bill” from “Silence of the Lambs” keeps his victims prisoner and in which some scenes from the film were shot could soon rent rooms.
Built in 1910 in Perryopolis, a suburb of Pittsburgh, the house extends over three floors and offers an area of 2,300 square meters.
The interior is essentially the same as in the classic psychological thriller by Jonathan Demme, which won five Oscars.
After the four-bedroom home sold for about $ 195,000 five years ago, Chris Rowan, a production designer, bought it for $ 290,000.
Rowan plans to turn the famous hangout spot into a tourist destination to rent out stays to visitors, his spokesman told AFP.
Guests could tour the house, including the basement where Jame Gumb – better known as Buffalo Bill – imprisoned the women he kidnapped and where scenes from “Silence of the Lambs” were filmed in 1991.
The new homeowner, a film set decorating specialist, plans to recreate Buffalo Bill’s wild workshop and a replica of the pit where Gumb left his victims.
The well does not exist in the current house; These scenes were shot in a studio.
Real estate agent Eileen Allan, who confirmed to AFP that the house had been sold to Chris Rowan, uploaded a filmed home tour of the room to YouTube.
