The Pennsylvania home that served as the eerie setting of the 1991 classic Silence of the Lambs has gone on sale for just under $300,000, just in time for the spooky holiday. 

The three-story Princess Anne Victorian that served as the home of the crazed Buffalo Bill is in Perryopolis – just an hour outside of Pittsburgh.

A film crew spent three days shooting in the home, which is being shown by ‘The Sisters,’ Eileen Allan and Shannon Assad. 

The exterior of the house hasn’t changed much since it appeared in the horror movie, although it appears that a couple of bushes have been removed and some repainting has been done
