For those that need a little refresher, Buffalo Bill was one of the main antagonists in The Silence Of The Lambs. Portrayed by actor Ted Levine, Buffalo Bill was a serial killer who murdered overweight women and skinned them to make a “woman suit” for himself.
His infamous house is located in the Fayette County community of Layton, Pennsylvania. The property was last sold in 2016 for $195,000 to an owner who was a fan of The Silence Of The Lambs. However, it looks like Buffalo Bill’s house is back on the market just in time for Halloween 2020.
The three-story, four-bedroom house sits on 1.7 acres along the Yough River and is listed at $298,500. The house was built in 1910 next to land that was once owned by George Washington.
The 1991 film is based on the 1988 novel by Thomas Harris. The film, which stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, went on to win numerous awards including five Academy Awards and two BAFTAs.
