In 1991 Jodie Foster was getting the help of a cannibalistic serial killer named Hannibal Lector to find another serial killer named Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs. Spoiler alert, Foster’s character, Clarice, finds the latter in a house with a rather gruesome basement.

That house, located in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh is up for sale. This four-bedroom Queen Anne style multi-level is perfect for those who are starting a family, interested in film history or like nature as a neighbor.

Sadly, for you psychopaths, there isn’t a basement as seen in the movie, but there is a movie-used cold cellar area.

The price for this architectural beauty will put you back $298,500 which is slightly less than the original asking price of $300,000 when it was on the market in 2015.

Jonathan Demme filmed inside the house for three days for his film adaptation of the 1988 Thomas Harris novel.
