Complex says: It’s the infamous movie scene that forever spoiled pea soup for horror fans worldwide.

A green ooze spouts from Blair’s mouth like a geyser, the priests’ black outfits are covered in the nasty goo.

They’d still be susceptible to homicide, sure, but at least their gear would stay fresh to death.
