Silence of the Lambs Home Sure to be a Killer Draw

Get your fava beans ready, Pittsburgh. When a stately Fayette County home was built in 1910, adjacent to property once owned by George Washgington, no one knew that one of the most beloved cult-classic horror films of all-time would be filmed there. In 2020, over 100 years after the house was built and nearly 30 years after the movie won 5 Oscars, the home still … Continue reading Silence of the Lambs Home Sure to be a Killer Draw
