Steps from The Exorcist

M and Prospect Streets, Washington DC.
2007-11-11
The Google Maps view of the stairs is pretty poor. The stairs exit immediately to the right of the white van in the image. To really get a good look click the larger view link. For this one we have used the Windows Live Search Bird's eye view which really shows the stairs well. The "Exorcist steps", stone steps at the end of M Street in Georgetown, were padded with 1/2"-thick rubber to film the death of Karras. The stunt man tumbled down the stairs twice. Georgetown University students charged people around $5 each to watch the stunt from the rooftops.
