SILENCE OF THE LAMBS SERIAL KILLER BUFFALO BILL HOUSE TO BE B&B, MUSEUM
So I vaguely remember reading something about the fact that Buffalo Bill’s house from Silence of the Lambs was on the market. I didn’t think anything of it. I mean, it’s in Pittsburgh, after all. While I’ve been there, and it’s a nice town, it’s out there. I didn’t even entertain the fantasy of wanting to buy the place. But it turns out the property was on the market for quite some time. Not anymore! Just as there is a new TV series about young Clarice coming out, the property has a new owner. And it will now be both a museum for the movie as well as a B&B.
WITH NEW SILENCE OF THE LAMBS TV SHOW, NEW B&B JUST MIGHT BE A SUCCESS STORY
Now that just might be a decent business plan! Just think about it. Silence of the Lambs isn’t a movie that kids these days really know, much less identify with. But if the new show depicting an innocent yet tough female protagonist does well, the kids will be on board. If you buy it, they will come. Or that’s the theory, anyway. The new owners hope that the 4-bed Queen Anne Victorian house will work well as a boutique hotel, and be a draw for cinemaphiles. Um, movie fans. So one of the new owners is Chris Rowan, a major movie fan himself who helps run the New York City Horror Film Festival every year.
NEW GENERATIONS OF TECHNOPHILES LOOKING FOR A COOL PLACE TO SHACK UP WILL LOVE IT
So it’s been just a while since Silence of the Lambs hit theaters, back in 1991. But the movie was such a success, it won 5 damn Oscar Awards! And if the new TV show translates well, several new generations will want to know what all the fuss was about. I mean, they will be curious where the tv show came from. And it will likely spook the hell out of them. Now, suddenly, I’m craving fava beans and a nice Chianti. I’ll skip the liver.
