Buffalo Bill's House
Beginning with 1968's Night of the Living Dead, so many scary films have been shot in Western Pennsylvania that Pittsburgh is regarded by many as the horror movie capital of America. The iconic Silence of the Lambs is among them - with key scenes filmed at deranged serial killer Buffalo Bill’s House in Perryopolis. Current owner Chris Rowan now gives tours, rents, and opens the home as a museum.
