Amenities include four bedrooms, a pool, veranda, and dungeon?

Okay, so the dungeon is not included, but the famous horror film house really is for sale. According to a listing on realtor.com, the home in Fayette County, PA is going for a cool $300k and has four bedrooms, one bath, inground pool, oversized shop/garage (perfect for some hanging one’s skin suit, perhaps?), in a quaint village about an hour south of Pittsburgh.

The surrounding school district is noted as “great” and the home has barely been touched since it appeared in the 1991 classic horror film, perfect for die-hard fans of the movie, or anyone looking to keep creeped out in-laws away (hey, it still puts the lotion in the basket). You will also get photos from filming, and a signed book with the inscription, “Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful house for our scary movie,” by star Jodie Foster and director Jonathan Demme.

In the movie, the three-story Victorian has a dungeon where Buffalo Bill, played by Ted Levine, keeps the young women he abducts. He harvests moths from the dungeon to place in the throats of his dead victims. Yum.

The house belongs to married couple Scott and Barbara Lloyd, both 63, who have lived there nearly four decades. They were married in the home’s foyer in 1977.

They told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review that a location scout knocked on their door out of the blue and they agreed to allow filming. It took production crews six weeks to prepare the home.

The couple, who have a framed promotional poster for the movie in their home office, told the newspaper they’re looking to downsize.

Barbara Lloyd said, “People love to be scared. I could see somebody doing something fun with this.” Any takers?
