This is something that has always bothered me about 'The Exorcist', one of the things that makes this film so terrifying is the fact that everything that happens to Reagan seems almost plausable, and as a result, the film is almost grounded in reality. Every cut, scrape, etc could happen to any of us. All of this is what makes the film so real, except one... the famous head spinning scene. I have always had a problem with that shot because it seems to go "out of bounds" so to speak in terms of realism, I mean every injury Reagan sustains in the film could and will heal, except that. Her head spinning around would have broken her neck, and when Pazoozoo the demon is cast out, she should have just dropped dead of a broken neck! I know that it's the most famous shot in the film, but I wouldn't mind it terribly if that shot was cut out as it always takes me out of the movie a little. It interrupts the flow of realism that the movie establishes for itself up to that point, and just doesn't mesh well with the rest of the film for me. Does anyone know what i'm saying here?
