!! OMG, the Towson house from John Waters’ ‘Serial Mom’ is for SALE! !!

The residence for sale in Towson has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a two-car garage on a half-acre lot near a golf course.

The house at 600 Lake Drive was used as the home of Beverly Sutphin, the knife-wielding homemaker portrayed by Kathleen Turner in the 1994 movie “Serial Mom,” written and directed by filmmaker John Waters.

The house appears in the opening scene and throughout the movie as other members of the Sutphin family go about their daily lives, oblivious to Serial Mom’s penchant for making obscene phone calls, devouring crime novels and killing people who get on her nerves. Now it’s ready for a new family.

The listing agent for the Serial Mom house is Alex Hodges of Cottage Street Realty in Northern Virginia and is priced at $630,000. What a killer deal!

The claims and conspiracy theories surrounding the launch of 5G networks have been shocking. In the most extreme cases, people linking the technology with the coronavirus pandemic have torched mobile phone masts and assaulted engineers.

In an attempt to get to the bottom of it, VICE speaks to Dr David Robert Grimes, a cancer researcher and physicist at the University of Oxford, to find out if there are any grounds for these claims and to hear his explanation of the symptoms some people are attributing to the rollout of 5G.

We also meet people protesting against the implementation of the new generation of cellular networks to hear the ways that they claim it is negatively impacting their lives.
