Gift idea: spend a night in the house of the Silence of the Lambs killer


The 1910 mansion located in Pennsylvania, which was used to shoot several scenes of the Oscar-winning thriller, will soon be able to welcome the curious, with a room to rent and a reconstruction of the horror cellar.

How to spend a nightmare night.

A movie set designer recently bought the house where serial killer Buffalo Bill from

Silence of the Lambs

sequesters his victims.

In the sinister residence, which was used for the filming of several scenes of the film, he will soon be offering rooms for rent, with the added bonus of a visit to the premises and to the famous horror cellar.

Located in Perryopolis, a suburb of Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), the 216 m2 home built in 1910 has retained most of the interior design seen in Jonathan Demme's five-Oscar feature film, although the paper painted is slightly different.

Sold five years ago for 195,000 dollars, it has just been bought back 290,000 dollars by Chris Rowan.

The new owner wants to make it a tourist spot, with the possibility, later this year, of renting a room.

Guests staying in the house will be able to tour it, including the cellar in which Jame Gumb, aka Buffalo Bill, sequesters the women he kidnaps, and where plans were made for

The Silence of the Lambs

, released in 1991.

The buyer, who specializes in decorating movie sets, plans to recreate Buffalo Bill's sordid workshop, and build a replica of the well in which Jame Gumb leaves his victims.

This well does not exist in the current house and the corresponding scenes in the film were shot in the studio.

Berkshire Hathaway estate agent Eileen Allan uploaded a video tour of the house to YouTube.
