MJ And Roxanne Are Obsessed With “Silence of the Lambs”
You could invite Hannibal Lecter to your house for some fava beans and a nice chianti. Then you could go down in the basement where Buffalo Bill kept Clarice trapped.
The house in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, which was used for some of the scenes in the movie, is listed at $298,500. The house is located along the train tracks that you can see in the beginning shot of Clarice’s scene with Buffalo Bill.
I love these real estate agents who are selling this home. They are sisters, and they just put it all out there in the property promo video. It is set to eerie, horror movie music, and they highlight creepy areas of the house. It seems like a decent price per square foot, but it’s going to require a sort of niche buyer who has a fondness for macabre.
Back when the house was on the market in 2016, an animal rights group wanted to buy it and make it an “empathy museum,” where you could wear the skin of mistreated animals. The character Jame Gumb famously wore the skin of mistreated humans (humans who he had mistreated).
Here are some clips from the house in Silence of the Lambs.
