One of the most shocking scenes from The Exorcist, released in 1973, was when young Regan (played by Linda Blair) violently masturbated with a crucifix. The writers of Fox’s TV series based on the film reimagined this notorious scene with shocking results. During Episode 3 (Let ‘Em In) which aired last Friday, possessed Casey Rance (played by Hannah Kasulka) has an intimate encounter with a hot curling iron! The scene was intensified by the sounds of sizzling flesh, and a look of pleasure on Casey’s face.

No one seemed more surprised by the inclusion of this scene than Exorcist writer Jeremy Slater, who later tweeted:
I’m still amazed by how much we got away with in this episode. There’s a scene with a curling iron that may be a first for network TV. I still can’t believe we got that on television. #FeelTheBurn
