‘The Silence of The Lambs’ House is For Sale; Here’s How Much You Can Buy it For

Many horror movies are scary because of how real they often feel. The unsuspecting victim (or victims) often begin the movie living their normal, day-to-day life before getting caught up in a terrifying story. What’s often scarier is that these stories take place and are filmed in regular homes and not big Hollywood sound stages. The 1991 classic The Silence of the Lambs stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, and maintained its sense of reality because of its connection to everyday America.

Is home title theft a real thing? You bet it is, and here’s how to protect your property

Have you heard the commercials for a company, Home Title Lock, warning about how the title to your home can get stolen without you knowing it?

So many Texans have written The Watchdog to learn more.

“Are home title ads a scam or is this a real problem?” one man asked me.

“I figured the commercials for this were like many, playing on the fears of people, just to make money,” another said.

And another: “I am skeptical and would appreciate your advice.”

The Watchdog surveyed the county clerks in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant counties. I also talked to the company that bombards us with advertising.

I have experience covering this. A decade ago, I told the story of Norris Fisher, who stole 170 homes in Tarrant County (some kind of record) before he was shipped off to prison.

So yeah, it’s real. Crooks can forge names and use

Regal Timberlyne, which opened in 1993, is one of 18 Regal Theatre locations in North Carolina. Other Triangle locations are in Raleigh, Cary, Garner and Apex.

The six-screen, 1,350-seat theater, located at 120 Banks Drive near the Timberlyne shopping center, closed in March when the state shut down to stem COVID-19 infections. The state has not yet lifted its restrictions on movie theaters.

Online postings show Foundry Commercial had listed the theater property for sale in January. Cary-based Parkway Holdings Phase 2 LLC plans to close on the property in December, so it’s unlikely the theater will reopen, Parkway Holdings manager Eli Zablud said.

Regal Theatre officials did not return a phone call seeking comment.

Parkway Holdings representative, TMTLA Associates, submitted a concept
