The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day is in here. With us.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Where do I start with The Exorcist? How about how it’s one of the only real hardcore horror movie crossover films, a movie with underage crucifix masturbation, more cuss words than you can shake a stick at and demonic possession that is also a mainstream film? Unique is the word. There has never been a film like it before or since. Sure, there’ve been horror films that have done well, that have become part of popular culture, but few of them are regarded as art like this one. When the Catholic Church embraces a horror movie you know you have something special. Today’s picture features the unsung second star of the film, Eileen Dietz, Linda Blair’s double, as the great Dick Smith applies her facial prosthetics. And not just any prosthetics. In the photo, Smith is hiding the tube that runs under the make-up and spews out the split pea soup. For all your vomiting pleasure I present a behind the scenes look at The Exorcist! Enjoy!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic will feature an illegal taking a siesta! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    Not one. Today, it's only about SHOCK HORROR.... how much gore you can show or how uncomfortable you can make the audience. Exorcist delved in people's fears, beliefs, and souls.

    The Exorcist is still #1. Nothing else, not even JAWS can top it for primal terror and fear of the dark places. Good to see Eileen Deitz getting some recognition for, by most accounts, a tough shoot.

    How friggin' great was Jason Miller in this!

    by tritium

    He was a playwright who had some minor stage acting experience. Friedkin took a chance and cast him as Father Damien...and movie history was made.<p>I especially love the mentor/protege relationship that Max Von Sydow and Jason Miller were able to establish, with only a few scenes together.<p>And yes, Max Von Sydow kicked all kinds of ass as Father Merrin. Ellen Burstyn was great, as well.

    The most overated movie of ALL time!!!!

    by Gabba-UK

    I watched it on on old Betamax tape while it was still 'banned' in the UK. I'd grown up with the stories about how terrifying it was, how people had heart attacks while watching it in the cinema. So you can imagine how keyed up me and my friends were when we settled down to watch it....... I can't remember laughing so much a film that wasn't a comedy. It was dire, an embaresment to be in a room watching it. I also think it may have been one if the key moments in my life that made me an atheist. If people let this religious nonsense disturbe them to the point their having heart attacks watching a fucking movie, a shit movie at that, then I want no truck with that bollocks. If you think The Exorcist is the scarieist movie ever made, then you shouldn't be allowed out on your own as your clearly a danger to yourselves and others. If you think, like some, that it's the best movie ever made, then you have no taste.

    It feels pretty good actually, shortening of the way...

    by Gabba-UK

    It means I'm free to look at something and judge it on it's own merits rather than what others say to judge it on. I judge The Exorcist as a piss poor movie. It's a well made and acted piss poor movie I grant you but a movie who's 'power' is based on an ideology that I find repugnant due to its hypocrisy. It's willingness to condone predjudice's based on the lifestyle choices that others practice while at the same time hide appalling levels of abuse that it's practioners and representatives have inflicted upon the most vulnerable in our society. But that's just how I judge things, based on my own experiences. It's a piss poor movie.

  • Oct. 20, 2010, 4:05 a.m. CST

    by billyhitchcock1

    someone that agrees with me!!! the word that completely describes the exorcist is Laughable! i can't believe so many people get behind it?! Quint's movie today is Black Cat, which he called mediocre. fair enough, but black cat has genuine suspense and 'fright'. the exorcist is a joke and i can't believe more people don't see it.

    by Gabba-UK

    Then I can see how you would be scared. I don't believe in any of that nonsense so I consider it funny and stupid. Apologies if that flys in the face of convention, that's just how I roll. For the record, my favourite horror movie is Carpenters version of The Thing. And it's very easy for a film to be well made but be a poor movie. Avatar is arguably Camerons best made film but is easily his weakest in terms of my emotional involvement in it. The Abyss remains his best film. We're moving off topic here a little but I d love to see what Cameron could do with a huge budget and a good horror script.

    The Exorcist is alright. It definitely has some unsettling scenes, but overall it just didn't work for me. Jaws and The Thing are MUCH better films in my opinion.

    and it scared me. My girlfriend however wasn't so The Exorcist means nothing to her - she can't see what all the fuss is about. I LOVE The Thing btw, but never found it scary. I used to find Robert Wise' The Haunting scary when I was a kid, and Salem's Lot.

  • Oct. 20, 2010, 5:16 a.m. CST

    As I said...

    by Gabba-UK

    I appreciate the craft that went into The Exorcist and consider it a well made and directed movie. I can be subjective enough to see that. But the conceit behind it, God and Devil, heaven and hell and the like, is such an antithesis to what I consider to be true that I can't take it seriously. I don't believe either in frozen aliens buried in the Antarctic ice but that's due to the scientific evidence about the energy requirements for an alien ship to get here in the first place. But I'm willing to let that go for the story to work. There's nothing in the Exorcist I could suspend disbelieve in long enough for the movie to work for me i.e. Scare the shit out of me.

    by Gabba-UK

    because I'll freely admit to not being able to watch it all the way through, it scares me that much. So I guess in terms of doing it's job, it the best horror movie made. But The Thing is more enjoyable in my opinion.

    it all depends on how you watch this film that makes it scary

    by vin_diggler

    If you get together with a bunch of friends on a Saturday afternoon to watch this film, then yes it will come across as funny and not scary. also if you get caught up in all the hype about people having heart attacks while watching, then yes you will be disappointed. But if you come across it late at night by yourself having know idea what it is about (like I did myself many years ago) then this movie will scare the shit out of you.

    There is no proof that aliens exist. UFOs aren't real. Therefore, The Thing is the antithesis of what I believe to be true, so it has no affect on me. Guess I won't be going to see Green Lantern then, either. Bigfoot isn't real, so Harry and the Hendersons is out. No one can really shoot energy beams out of their eyes or turn thier skin into metal, so X-Men is out. No such things as trees that can walk and talk, so Lord Of The Rings is out. Am I cool yet?

    The Shining? Nightmare on Elm Street? Suspiria? Friday the 13th? The Thing? I guess some scarier movies are believable -- Silence of the Lambs, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But I never thought believing a movie's premise was realistic was necessary for it to be scary. Or in any way effective, for that matter. Is E.T. stupid because it's unbelievable, too?

    Best use of make-up in any movie, ever imo. Use of near subliminal cuts by friedkin that really fuck with your head. Whole subtext about child molestation so well done, that it becomes a completely different film the next time you view it, after realizing it. An atheist and a female as its lead character which just wasn't done. Maybe the best use of sound in the history of film. Sorry, know I'm rambling, but the thing is just so fucking awesome.

    Yeah, Regan speaks in Burke's voice while possessed. Like when she (he) says "Do you know what she did, your c*nting daughter?" referring to Burke's murder. Also, the number of voices is confirmed when Karras reports them to Father Merrin. He says there are three of them.<p> To which Merrin responds, "There is only one."<p> Priceless.<p> For anybody interested, over at they have released a special edition hardback of Exorcist bound with its sequel, Legion, in one book, signed by Blatty.

    by LaserPants

    If you don't believe in the devil, then why be scared when the devil shows up? The aliens in the The Thing are scary because they are grotesque warpings of flesh and because of the paranoia they inspire. It's like a kind of virus. Virus' exist. Deformities exist. Paranoia exists. Scary. Devil doesn't exist. Not scary. Funny, though!

    Let's get this straight.

    by Carnotaur3

    LaserPants, and Gabba don't like The Exorcist. They say it has something to do with what they do not believe. That isn't exactly true since Laser tries to make the case (and fails at it) for The Thing having to do with Paranoia and that's why he finds it scary. Stop flirting with saying what you want to say. You don't like The Exorcist because you don't like watching films that deal with Christian themes and religion in general. Just fucking say it lol

    she's not possessed by the devil

    by vin_diggler

    Father Merrin makes that clear so whether you believe in the devil or not means nothing. Also, the aliens in The Thing are not a virus. You say they are like a virus so they are scary. You contradicted yourself.

    I don't believe in Bigfoot, but I'm pretty sure that if I even ran into one, I'd poop. Hell, I contend I'd be *more* scared than someone who believed in and expected to see a Bigfoot.

    Never found this movie scary

    by SgtSharki

    I've seen this movie several times and it's never scared me. It's intense and well made but I don't understand why people find this movie frightening. Now "Poltergeist" that movie still scares the crap out of me.

    The Exorcist is a favorite of mine but...

    by ufoclub1977

    I love The Exorcist, I've seen it many many many times, even own it on laserdisc. I have the Japanese edition soundtrack and listen to it! But I love The Shining more for actual watching. I've seen The Shining upwards of 50 times! I think people who think the Exorcist is funny just don't have the imagination to experience it in a "real" way in their minds. Just like people who don't get "Blair Witch". It's all about your ability to lose yourself in the situation. As if they wouldn't be scared of that shit in real life: if there sister got super strong, murdering people with her bare hands and forcing their moms' faces into there bloody stabbed crotches and slapping them across the room. It's about all encompassing fate, death, supernatural omniscience, blasphemy, stirring up within real horrors of old age, family responsibility (like taking care of your parents when they get old), depression, etc.

    Guys, please leave the atheists alone...

    by maverick68

    they are trying DESPERATELY to appear superior to us all and dissecting their arguments with logic is completely destroying their credibility...

    BTW, you can't PROVE....

    by maverick68

    the Devil or God don't exist, so speaking in such absolutes makes you look silly....

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre was an awful movie

    by MelGibsonsRacialTirade

    Sure, when it came out it was super scary...but it was an absolutely horrible movie. The scene in the van where the guy cuts himself is agonizingly long and virtually pointless...complete with horrible acting and dialogue.

    Most Terrifying film I have ever seen,.. and I'm an atheist

    by Nomoredirtyanything

    Took me a long time to finally watch this film. <p> I finally saw it at the cinema in a re-release. Breathtaking. An absolute masterpiece.
