The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)

A replica of Hannibal Lector’s cell, from Jonathan Demme’s classic 1991 film “The Silence of the Lambs,” was built in the basement of the Hollywood Museum in Hollywood, California.  While not an exact match to the film, it’s pretty close.

Moving on to real world locations, while the climax to the film is set in Ohio, the home of Buffalo Bill can actually be found in the rural town of Perryopolis, Pennsylvania.  You can follow the Youghiogheny River up to the railroad tracks (which are in active use), into a head-on view of the famous house where Clarice Starling faced off with Buffalo Bill.
