It’s the first week in September, which means we can officially shift our attention from beaches and cookouts to sweater weather and all things spooky. And if horror movies are your thing, you’re in luck: as Rolling Stone reports, guests can now book an overnight stay at the house owned by Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs.

The four-bedroom, one-bathroom Victorian home in Fayette County, Pennsylvania has been converted into a “boutique accommodation” and filled with Lambs-themed decor. Each room is named for a different character from the film — “The Clarice,” “The Hannibal,” “The Precious” and “The Buffalo Bill” — and decorated with memorabilia from the movie.

“We have been working hard to create an unforgettable experience for fans,” owner Chris Rowan told the publication. “That’s why we decided to offer the house on a private rental basis. In other words, you and your booked group alone, will have exclusive access to the house during your stay. No other visitors or guests will be allowed at the home or on the premises. We want to give fans access to this unique opportunity to spend a night or two or even a week at Buffalo Bill’s House and live out all of their ‘Silence’ fantasies.”

And of course, no trip to Buffalo Bill’s House would be complete without spending some time in its creepy basement.

“Guests are going to be in for a real treat when they head downstairs to the infamous basement,” Rowan said. “We have re-created what we are calling ‘Buffalo Bill’s Workshop of Horrors’, complete with vintage Singer sewing machine, disco ball, four female mannequins dressed to resemble the ones in the movie, and of course, a full length mirror and Buffalo Bill style kimono for our guests’ use, designed to help fans get ‘in the mood’ to live out their Buffalo Bill fantasies. We even have ‘Goodbye Horses,’ the haunting song that plays during the famous Buffalo Bill dance scene, on autoplay, as folks enter the basement. So, we encourage fans to put on that kimono and get their own ‘tuck’ on. And don’t forget to take and post photos!”

You can book your stay at Buffalo Bill’s House here. Rates start at $695 a night, but if you’re planning a Halloween stay, beware: there’s a special Halloween weekend surge price totaling $3,995 a night.
