Which one would that be? For me there's a few, but I know that the Hedge Clipper scene is notoriously scary.

I might be a little biased though, I loved the book in which the movie was based on (it was originally supposed to be called Legion like the book, but they gave it the Exorcist name for better marketability). The problem is that people go into it expecting the Exorcist, and it's very disconnected from the original plot. Legion really is it's own thing.

Plus, it's one of the only 2 movies William Blatty actually directed, and i'm a HUUUUUUUGE fan of his first movie "The Ninth Configuration". E3 is much in the same style as TNC with it's dreamlike sequences and esoteric undertones, and Blatty even brings back some of the actors.

I might like TNC a bit more than E3, but they're both top notch psychological horror from an absolute master of his craft.
