    I have a thing for movies about exorcisms, and usually the exorcism moment is very powerfull, and actors can create a very strong showing. Which performance has left you scared, shaking or freaked out? And that you also consider it to be a great performance. Tell me your favorite!

    I have loved The Exorcism of Emily Rose since the first time i watched it, the exorcism part is absolutely frightening, i get chills everytime i see it, and Jennifer Carpenter’s performance is mostly what produces that feeling. The way she screams it’s like a supernatural created voice, she owns this movie.

    I know it isn’t a movie but Lily Rabe in AHS: Asylum was an amazing possessed performance

    I’ll go with Steve Martin’s New York Film Critics’ Best Actor winning performance as a man possessed by heiress Lily Tomlin in the joyful All of Me.

    I’m going for the obvious choice but without a doubt Linda Blair. I am still so disappointed she didn’t win the Oscar that year

    Eva Green in Penny Dreadful, a rare performance on TV.

    Yes. Also arguably my favourite Martin performance.

    I love this topic. Tx for posting.

    Nothing tops Linda Blair screaming “Your mother sucks cocks in hell” while spewing green vomit.

    I agree with  two of you !   Hands down Linda Blair (in one of Oscar’s biggest mistakes, Tatum O’Neal beating her out for Best Supporting).   A close second is Eva Green from Season One of Penny Dreadful (the seance) !

    Hands down Linda Blair (in one of Oscar’s biggest mistakes, Tatum O’Neal beating her out for Best Supporting).  

    After the nominations were announced, it was widely reported that Blair was dubbed by Oscar winner Mercedes McCambridge in all the possession scenes. The veteran actress was interviewed and described drinking raw eggs to get the right vocalization and being tied down during recording sessions to create a sense of terror. The revelation effectively dismissed Blair as a contender for the Oscar.

    More interesting now are some of the other ingenues who auditioned to play the role of the teenager Regan MacNeil. These reportedly included Laura Dern, Eve Plumb (aka Jan Brady), Jamie Leigh Curtis, and Carrie Fisher.

    I had no idea Eve Green could act at all. She was atrocious in the Bond film. In Penny Dreadful she’s absolutely astonishing and should have won every award going.
