No one dares to buy the house from ''Silence of the Lambs''

No one dares to buy the house from ''Silence of the Lambs''
About three hours south of Pittsburgh, USA, is a charming house in a classic Queen Anne style which with three floors and a basement, la lush garden and a swimming pool. It has been on the market since last August. But despite massive interest, no one has been willing to buy the orange house in Circle Street, although it goes for a lower sum than other homes in the same neighborhood.

Because this is actually not just any house. Within these walls and down in the basement, terrifying events unfolded 25 years ago. At least on film.

Anyone who has seen the thriller "Silence of the Lambs," remembers the feeling when the fresh FBI agent Clarice Starling, played by Jodie Foster, knocks on the door at the home of a man named James Gumba, who with a friendly smile lets her inside.

Soon Clarice realizes that she is in the home of "Buffalo Bill", a serial killer who abducts young women, torture and kills them and uses their skin to sew costumes to himself.

On Sunday January 10 realtor Diane Wilk in RE / MAX Select Realty, organized an viewing of the house, where anyone who was interested could come and see. Before that she made a film that points out the fact that the house was used in making the movie "Silence of the Lambs." But still no go on a sale.

Before Christmas the price was even lowered from $300,000 to $249,900 in an attempt to attract buyers in a different price range. But the fact that the property only has one bathroom can be a contributing factor, says Diane Wilk.

However, it would be more likely that the scary basement is the reason.
