The allure of a horror movie house with the possibility of a fabled pit in the basement was not enough to garner $300,000 for this listing south of Pittsburgh. After dropping three times, the asking price is now $249,900.
Just put on the lotion and come see this home, the listing invites.
That’s the only way you’ll know for sure whether there’s a pit in the basement of the unassuming Victorian where Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb softened and skinned his victims in the 1991 thriller “The Silence of the Lambs.”
Your visit will start with walking through the same door upon which Jodie Foster, as Agent Clarice Starling, knocked when she confronted Gumb. Like her, you’ll proceed to the dining room where he fumbled with cards while she pulled her gun.
