A couple from Pennsylvania is having a very tricky time selling their house, which was used as the home of terrifying killer Buffalo Bill in iconic 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs, reports the Tribune Review.

Owners Scott and Barbara Lloyd have been looking for a buyer for the house since last summer, but they’ve had to drop the asking price from $300,000 (about £278,000) to $250,000 (£173,000).

But it’s not all that creepy, because while the foyer and dining room of the house are in the film, the basement pit where the killer kept his victims doesn’t actually exist, because those horrifying scenes were filmed on a soundstage.
