The house where the film “The Silence of the Lambs” was filmed (“The Silence of the Lambs”, in English) can be opened to visitors and become a rental house and a tourist spot.
According France-Press agency (AFP), this is the Chris Rowan, a production designer, who recently bought the house for $ 290,000 (equivalent to 240,000 euros).
The interior of the building continues just like the famous movie awarded 5 Oscars. The three-story building, with a total area of 215 square meters, was built in 1910 in a suburb of Pittsburgh, in the state of Pennsylvania, in the United States.
Rowan planeia transform the infamous home into a tourist destination, with the objective of renting stays to visitors.
Tenants are expected to have access to the basement where “Buffalo Bill” kept the women kidnapped.
In addition, the current owner, who specializes in decorating film sets, intends to recreate the criminal’s workshop and make a replica of the well where the villain in the film left his victims.
Rowan has already created a website that promises “the dream destination of a true cinema lover” with some of the “most exclusive photo opportunities”.
Prospective tenants can take a virtual tour of the home at YouTube.
It is not yet known how much it would cost renting the entire building or one of the four rooms in the house.
