These steps, located in Georgetown in Washington D.C., became a piece of horror history after being used for two death scenes in 1973's "The Exorcist."
Georgetown students charged people $5 to watch the movie stunt being filmed.

"The Exorcist" steps, 2014
Today, the site is popular with tourists and local runners (90 stairs, what a workout).
In the film, a character falls out a bedroom window and down the stairs. In real life, they're about 40 feet away. A facade was built onto the house to make the death look more realistic.
Also, a "Jesus Wept" poster still adorns the staircase wall. Creepy!

The Dakota, 1968
Exteriors of the Dakota, one of New York City's most historic and well-known apartment buildings, were used in Roman Polanski's horror classic "Rosemary's Baby." In the film, the building is re-named The Bramford after "Dracula" author Bram Stoker.

Today, the Dakota is probably best known as the site of John Lennon's tragic 1980 murder. He lived there at the time. Other residents have included Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall and Leonard Bernstein.
No two apartments in the Upper West Side complex were built alike. It was designed by the same architect as The Plaza Hotel.

"Amityville Horror" house, 1979
Long Island's 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville was the site of the DeFeo family murders in 1975, in which Ronald DeFeo Jr. killed six members of his family. Thirteen months later, the Lutz family moved in, but left after a month, claiming the house was haunted.
The house was the inspiration -- and used for exteriors -- in the 1979 film "The Amityville Horror."

The "Amityville Horror" house, 2010
The "Amityville Horror" house was put back on the market in 2010 -- its address changed to 108 Ocean Avenue, and its arch-shaped windows made square to deter tourists.
Amityville residents are less than thrilled with the publicity the house has brought their town. The Amityville Historical Society makes no mention of it on its website.
In 2010, David D'Antonio, the new owner of the home told Newsday, "It is my dream house -- our dream house. There's nothing the matter with it other than the outside people."
The Timberline Lodge, 1980
Exteriors of Oregon's Timberline Lodge were used in Stanley Kubrick's horror classic, "The Shining." The rest of the film was shot at Elstree Studios in London.

The Timberline Lodge, 2014
Today, the Timberline Lodge is a popular spot for skiiers. Room 237 is
the most requested at the hotel.
And while it does not have a hedge
maze, it does have a pretty sweet water park for summer.

The "Poltergeist" house, 1982
In "Poltergeist," the fictional Cuesta Verde housing company built a housing tract over an old cemetery, but instead of moving the bodies, they only moved the headstones. Big mistake.
The house is located at 4267 Roxbury Street in Simi Valley, California. The film is set in and around the house belonging to the Freeling family.

The "Poltergeist" house, 2014
Today, the Poltergeist house looks nearly identical to when it was used for the film. It gets its fair share of visitors.
