Re: What movie scene scarred you for life ?
There are many scenes in The Exorcist that sacred me, but the ones that stayed with me are:
Father Merrin, Father Damien Karras: The Power of Christ compels you!
Demon: Lick me, lick me!
Demon: Do you know what she did, your cunting daughter?
Demon: Keep away. The sow is mine.
Demon: Stick your cock up her ass, you motherfucking worthless cocksucker.
Demon: Your mother sucks cocks in Hell, Karras, you faithless slime.
When I watched this at a theater I was pretty young (11), and had no idea what I was in store for. I had heard plenty of cussing already, but not to this extent, and especially coming from a young girl.
I was I believe nine or ten when I saw The Exorcist during a re-release in '80 or so (the older cousin who babysat me and my two sisters on the weekend took us to the drive-in regularly). I wasn't into horror at the point but the movie didn't really bother me, mostly because my little kiddie brain didn't comprehend the weight of what I was seeing (subsequently, when I watched it again later in my teens, I understood just how truly frightening the flick is, hence its constant inclusion in my top 10 list).
At any rate, the only thing about the flick that I remember upsetting me that first time was when Pazuzu spoke through Regan in Damien's mother's voice. The part where she goes "Why you do this to me Damie?" I don't remember exactly why, but I recall that moment really slugging me in the gut and upsetting me.
The scene when she's hypnotized is intense. Her expressions evil as anything.
