"When I was a kid, the thing I remembered most about The Exorcist was Linda Blair being possessed by the devil, and how scary that was. It had a lot of parallels for me because the movie was challenging different ideas about faith and it was looking at religion in a darker way. Growing up I was afraid of being possessed by the devil, as an adult I’m afraid of being possessed by the world, by ignorance, and not holding on to my beliefs and what I feel strongly about."
— Marilyn Manson

Behind the scenes footage from the filming of the projectile vomit scene on the set of The Exorcist, originally shot with Eileen Dietz who wore a special apparatus created by make-up artist Dick Smith. The piece fit inside the actress’ mouth and had flat tubing hidden underneath the demonic make-up.
William Friedkin was not satisfied with the results and eventually brought in Linda Blair to re-shoot the scene without the apparatus and a separate shot of the vomit - a concoction of Andersen’s pea soup and oatmeal - was superimposed in post-production.
A few frames of the Dietz footage can still be seen in the film.

"One of the first things she did was offer me some grass, which I don’t smoke, have never been interested in and was sort of turned off by it. She said, “Well I believe that it’s fate that I will do this part.” I said, “Good luck to you,” and I left, never thinking that I’d have to use her."
