More famous than the house are the stairs. As in the movie, they are right next to the house and are very steep. All long the wall are various Exorcist quotes fans have written over the years.
Here is the university campus where Ellen Burstyn shot the movie-within-a-movie. The path she takes home from the university is actually real, no Hollywood tomfoolery here! (By the way, directly across the street from the Exorcist house is the bar that inspired St. Elmo's Fire.)
Here is the bridge where Ellen Burstyn meets the priest to discuss the exorcism of her daughter.
wasnt it released in 1973?ReplyDelete
This has been a life-long dream, would love to go to the house, and the new BluRay release has Blatty & Friedkin giving a tour of these exact locations! PS, This is David Cole...
Where is the universaty and the bridge?ReplyDelete
The house is at 3600 Prospect Street and the bridge is on the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal just down the way. Other locations are also in Georgetown, mostly around the university.ReplyDelete
