Iconic Steps

When I found out that I was going to Washington, this is what first came to my mind. Here, in 1972, Father Damien Karras (Jason Miller) lay in his own blood, having thrown himself from the 2nd story window of the McNeal house, 50 feet above, at 3600 Prospect Street. Now, the steps are used as an exercise platform for Georgetown University students, who run up and down them, seemingly oblivious to the cinematic history behind these iconic steps.

I believe that this is a pilgrimage that every horror film fanatic should endeavor to make at some point in their lives.
