A Pennsylvania couple has put the house used in the iconic thriller "The Silence of the Lambs" up for sale - and, for some reason, they're shocked that they're having such a hard time selling the home!
Scott and Barbara Lloyd listed the house, which served as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in the 1991 film, last summer and have already significantly lowered the asking price from $300,000 to $250,000 because there have been no serious buyers, according to the New York Post.
Many people have come to see the house out of curiosity, and it was even the second-most clicked home on Realtor.com in 2015, but nobody actually wants to live in the three-story Victorian because of its history.
"Even though it's got notoriety, location still is a big deal," Erik Gunther, a senior editor and expert on unique homes for Realtor.com, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review of the house, which is located in a tiny village about an hour outside of Pittsburgh. "The fact that the home gets a ton of publicity doesn't necessarily add up to a quick sale. Just because I want to gawk at something doesn't mean I want to buy it."
The house was built in 1910 and has four bedrooms, but only one bathroom. Only its foyer and dining room were depicted in the film. While many people believe the famous dungeon pit in the basement where the killer kept his victims before skinning and killing them is actually in the house, it is not - those scenes were filmed on a soundstage.
The only reason the Lloyds are selling their home, where they raised their son, is because they are downsizing to a house they're currently building a few miles away. They were actually married in the house's foyer in 1977, which was featured in the scene where Ted Levine's character first meets the FBI agent played by Jodie Foster.
