Would You Rent The “Silence Of The Lambs” House? You Can Now Sleep With “Buffalo Bill” And “Hannibal Lector!”

Have A Sleepover With Buffalo Bill!

I told you all months ago that the “Buffalo Bill” torture dungeon house from “The Silence Of The /lambs” was for sale – and guess what? You can now rent it and stay over – look at this entrance!

Yes, Hannibal Lector is there to greet you, and Bill himself can be walked all over!

It’s all because of Chris Rowan, a film industry art director and prop stylist who loves horror movies so much that he bought the riverside house made famous in the 1991 movie!

As The Washington Post reports:

Rowan, who hosts the New York City Horror Film Festival, officially opened the house as a vacation rental on Labor Day weekend. With a ghoulish eye for detail, he has filled the house with “The Silence of the Lambs” paraphernalia, including the life-size, animatronic Hannibal Lecter figure that greets visitors in the entryway with Hannibalisms such as, “I’m having an old friend for dinner.” Images of the sinister death’s-head hawkmoths that Buffalo Bill stuffed into his victims’ throats are ubiquitous in the house, and they appear in unlikely places, including the bedding in the four second-floor bedrooms.

The paper adds:

The house — located in Perryopolis, Pa., and built in 1910 — looks much as it did in the movie that swept the Academy Awards in 1992, only nicer. The 2,400-square-foot home sits on about two grassy acres, which also include a swimming pool and a rose garden. Neither can be seen in the movie, because the producers surrounded the house with shrubbery to give it an unkempt look fitting for Buffalo Bill, who was not much of a housekeeper, Rowan says.

You can check out the entire story at The Washington Post:


As I said, I shared the information about the house being for sale – click here for a tour of the place and an in-depth look at the film!

  1. This sounds great, John. I’d love to visit. It’s a bit like Sherlock Holmes’ house in London.

  2. I’m a big wuss about things like this, and I rarely watch scary movies because I nervously wait to be scared. Not my idea of a good time.

  4. I would love to stay there, outside of the decorations, it looks lovely, although I hope there are no actual trains on those tracks all the time.
    I love horror movies, but I could do without some of the decorations though, especially the animatronic cannibal.

  5. I would be 100% up for that, John. Film houses won’t scare me! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
