We’re
entering a new age here at CHUD, with a refreshed stable of writers, a
re-energized concentration of efforts, and a focus on consistent,
knowledge-backed fun. To ring in this new era for the site we wanted to
bring you a truly special, truly memorable, truly incredible list that
characterizes what CHUD is about, and we think we’ve cooked up just the
thing.

BODILY FUNCTION JUNCTION
The 25 Grossest, Most Execrable Moments in Film.


We’re
here to explore the most depraved, flinch-worthy, vomit-inducing (or
vomit-involving) moments ever put to film. We’re not interested in
simple gore and viscera here… We’re looking for the shittiest,
pusiest, cummiest, pukeiest, piss-filled scenes in the history of
motion-pictures. Some will be huge, some will be small, but they’ll all
be gross. We’ve also put an unprecedented amount of effort into
pre-planning, scheduling, and dividing the effort for this list, so
expect it to hit you every one of the next 25 weekdays (with a number of
special surprises planned for the weekends!).

So
without further ado, grab your nearest complimentary airsick bag (or
maybe just a whole trashcan) and jump into CHUD’s newest list.

THE MOVIE?


The Exorcist
(1973)

Warning: I am on my way out the door for our special Fathom Events screening of The Exorcist so this’ll be concise.

Does anyone really need this explained to them? When one considers a list of the most powerful bodily functions in film history is there anything that springs to mind before this seminal, genre-defining moment from the early 70’s? A young girl is possessed by a demon and projectile vomits on a priest. If that isn’t taboo (especially then), I don’t know what is.

But today it’s been run into the ground by spoofs and ‘homages’. Does it still hold its power?

In spades. Enjoy:



The Setup: Pazuzu the demon is in young Regan McNeil. So is pea soup. One of them is coming out and it ain’t Pazuzu.

THE GROSS?


Even back then, it wasn’t as gross as it was shocking. And thick. And green. And projectile. OK, it’s pretty gross.

WHO DOES IT COMES OUT OF?


Ms. Chained Heat herself.

WHERE DOES IT GO?


Jason Patric’s real-life father, the very talented and now very dead Jason Miller. He was a gifted writer and actor and he will forever best be known as the young pukepriest in The Exorcist.

ANY CASUALTIES?


That stain is going to test the skills of Georgetown’s finest dry cleaners.

HOW GROSS IS IT:


Not as gross as this, which OUGHT to be a bodily function.
