6. The Exorcist Was Filmed in Hughes Hall

Hughs Hall at Fordham University Rose Hill

Scenes from The Exorcist were actually filmed in the basement of Hughes Hall, giving the building an eerie history. The building has since been modernly renovated and is now the base camp for all Fordham students enrolled in the competitive Gabelli School of Business. With polished sliding glass doors and new, emerging media rooms one would never have guessed that a horror movie was filmed there.

Scenes from the movie were also shot at Keating Hall and other locations around New York City. Some of the other set locations included Goldwater Hospital (now demolished) on Roosevelt Island and Bellevue Hospital.
