Suspiria script
Suspiria (1977)
Synopsis: Suzy (Jessica Harper) travels to Germany to attend ballet school. When she arrives, late on a stormy night, no one lets her in, and she sees Pat (Eva Axén), another student, fleeing from the school. When Pat reaches her apartment, she is murdered. The next day, Suzy is admitted to her new school, but has a difficult time settling in. She hears noises, and often feels ill. As more people die, Suzy uncovers the terrifying secret history of the place.

Was murdered last night by some

madman. It's a frightening story.

But I always warn our students,

Don't I, miss Tanner?

I tell them to be careful, not to get

involved with questionable friendships.

What I wanted to tell you was that

your room here isn't free yet.

-Just a slight hitch.

-Yes, but don't worry.

We've found you a place to stay with one of

our third-year students who lives in town.

You'll have to pay 50 of your

American dollars a week,

But it's a good price, and you can

deduct it from your fee here.

Now I entrust you to the care of miss Tanner,

one of our veteran teachers here.

Don't be upset if she seems a little

stern or surly. It's only her manner.

She's even that way with me.

She really is an invaluable teacher.

-Come with me.

-And now, gentlemen--

As you know, our courses last three years,

And you must pass an exam

at the end of each year.

So, the girl left the school

About 11:
00 in the evening?

-That's my information.

-Excuse me.

When I got here last night about 11:00,

I saw a girl leaving the school.

She's a new student. She just

arrived. What did she look like?

Well, she had blonde hair and

was wearing a brown raincoat.

-What did she do?

-I don't know. I only saw her

for a minute in a storm.

So you see? It really was 11:00.


We don't teach you how to dance here,

because we presume our students already know how.

This is an established academy

dedicated to specializing.

This is Pavlos, our general handyman.

He's really ugly, isn't he?

don't be afraid to say so.

He can't understand you, anyway.

He speaks only Romanian.
