Something about the Exorcist that's really been bothering me

Ok it's like this. With scary movies, there are certain scares that you will remember the first time you saw them no matter what, just because of how fucked up they are.

I remember the Redrum = Murder and the Chewbacca blowjob scene from The Shining. I remember the baby xenomorph bursting out of John Hurt's chest in Alien. I remember a chick being stabbed through her exposed heart in Suspiria.

And I remembered just about everything from the Exorcist- except for the pussy cross stabbing scene. And you would think that would be the scene you remember the most because....its a bloody 12 year old vagina being stabbed with a crucifix. Hell I didn't even raise the proverbial eyebrow until I was listening to a Richard Pryor standup with the line "Get up stairs and wash yo ass girl! And get the cross out yo pussy!" Then I was like, "wait a minute, I don't remember that part." Then I went to youtube and looked the scene up and was all "I don't remember seeing this at all."

For those thinking "oh you probably saw it censored," no I did not see this on TV the first time. And it definitely wasn't censored cos I definitely remember all the super foul curse words in that movie. I rented some 30th anniversary edition because I remember having to fastforward for what seemed like 30 minutes before I actually got to the movie. Yet I just don't remember seeing that scene at all. I should also mention that I rented this at Hollywood video.

Did Hollywood video rip me off and censor that version for families like Wal-Mart and Target does for certain movies or something? Cos I seriously can't understand how I missed this. Or are there just versions of the movie that have that part censored and replaced with something else? Exorcist die-hards, give me a hand.

I'm quite positive that the scene has never been deleted for any official video release. If the copy you watched didn't have it, then it was certainly tampered with.

I saw this when I was about 12. Simultaneously, it scared the shit out of me and spawned my long-lasting obsession with science fiction.

Too bad I've never found a sci-fi film I liked more.
