Synopsis: Copycat is a 1995 American psychological thriller directed by Jon Amiel and starring Sigourney Weaver, Holly Hunter and Dermot Mulroney. The score was composed by Christopher Young.

CLOSE UP HIGH HEELS:

And a tattoo that the cop missed seeing on one of the

ankles. The shoes are kicked off. The feet disappear from

view as

HELEN, a few stalls away, methodically places toilet paper

around the seat before raising her skirt. A faint noise

makes her freeze. Her hand reaches for the door. She is

just able to unlock it, but no more, before a NOISE COMES

DOWN FROM THE NEXT STALL.

Like a lariat it falls over HELEN'S head and is violently

yanked tight. She kicks at the stall door.

CORRIDOR:
COP, leaning against outside door smoking, hears

the clang of metal as the stall door bangs open. He

reacts...

INT. LADIES ROOM - CONTINUED

The RED-HEADED MAN is struggling to secure the rope around a

hook inside his own stall. KNOCKING (o.s.)

COP (o.s.)

Doctor Hudson? Are you okay in

there?

The MAN lets slip a little slack.

HELEN'S fingers, thrusting between the rope and her neck,

get just enough air for HELEN to let out a strangled little

scream.

CORRIDOR:
COP, not certain what to do about the ambiguous

sounds from inside. Women stands nearby, inhibiting him for

a split second from going in the Ladies' Room door. Now

there is more SOUND from inside...

INT. LADIES ROOM - CONTINUOUS

COP steps into the room, gun down. Over the COP'S shoulder

we see HELEN hanging in open booth, her hand fluttering at

her throat. She has one slippery shoeless foot on the

toilet seat.

COP takes a couple of steps forward. Behind COP'S back we

see a broom closet door opening.
