PERRYOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania couple is struggling to sell a house used as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in the 1991 film “The Silence of the Lambs.”

Scott and Barbara Lloyd listed the house last summer, but they’ve dropped the asking price from $300,000 to $250,000.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says the three-story Victorian in Layton has been the second-most clicked home on last year.

Scott Lloyd says the publicity has attracted curiosity but no serious buyers.

Experts say the home’s location in a tiny village an hour south of Pittsburgh works against it. It also has only one bathroom to go with its four bedrooms.

The foyer and dining room were depicted in the film, but no, there’s no pit in the basement. Those scenes were filmed on a soundstage.
