Torture: Pair Struggles To Sell 'Silence Of The Lambs' House

PERRYOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania couple is being tortured by efforts 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 for lack of interest.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says the three-story, Victorian house in Layton has been the second-most clicked home on last year - but curiosity hasn't generated an offer.

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

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