'Silence of The Lambs' House Is Latest Movie Home For Sale


Everyone looks for different things in their dream home. Some pine for indoor jacuzzi tubs, while others fantasize about a stainless steel kitchen paradise.

And some just want to live in a house, inhabited by a fictional serial killer.

Scott and Barbara Lloyd of Perryopolis, Pennsylvania currently live in the house featured in the 1991 Academy-award winning film, "The Silence of the Lambs". After months of struggling to find a buyer on the market, the couple had to drop the house's asking price from $300,000 to $250,000.
