Silence of the Lambs fans will remember Buffalo Bill's creepshow of a house, teeming with Death's-Head Hawkmoths, screams and sewing supplies. If you happen to be within a stone's throw of Perry Township Fay, Pennsylvania, you may be lucky enough to visit Bill's digs, as the home has recently been put on the market for $300,000. 

Owners Scott and Barbara Lloyd​ have called the place home since December 1976.

According to an article in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review,  the property was ultimately selected as a location in the film due to the house's entryway.

"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."

Those looking for the dungeon basement replete with deep hole to house kidnap victims will be disappointed, however. That part of Bill's home was filmed on a movie soundstage. The house isn't actually near as creepy as one might imagine. See a gallery of 25 photos at its realtor's listing. Via Esquire

Four bedrooms, one bathroom. It is certainly from a different era.

My house was built in 1905, and of course started out with no bathroom at all. But over the next 110 years, three have been added.
