You might assume that movie fans would rush to buy the house inhabited by Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs, but you'd be wrong.

Scott and Barbara Lloyd currently live in the house in which the fictional psychopath butchered people and wore their skins and they have been forced to drop the asking price by $50,000.

The Pennsylvanian house went on the market for $300,000 several months ago and has dropped to $250,000 due to lack of interest - in purchasing.

The owners don't blame the movie entirely - they admit the house, built in 1910, has just one bathroom for four bedrooms which is a turn-off for buyers.

Also, the chilling basement scenes in the 1991 movie were filmed on a soundstage and not on the property itself.
