Santa Sangre Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Santa Sangre script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Alejandro Jodorowsky movie.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Santa Sangre. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

This is it, Monsignor.



This is where we worship...

our beloved saint and martyr.



Here she is, Monsignor.



But...this is no saint.



Monsignor, she is a saint.



How could you?



Right here, many years ago,



Lirio, a young girl, was attacked

by the Terrano brothers.



She tried to fight them off

with all her strength



but they cut off her arms.



They raped her



and left her to die in a pool of blood.



And on this ground, miraculously

still wet with her holy blood,



we built our church.



- This is paint!

- No, it's holy blood.



- This is paint!

- lt's holy blood!



Do you hear me, crazy woman? lt's paint!



- lt's blood! lt's blood!

This is paint! lt is paint! This is paint!



- Holy blood! lt's holy blood!

- (Angry shouting)



lt's holy blood!



- lt's paint!

- Holy blood.



l order you to stop...

this foolish sacrilege...immediately.



Never! This is our saint!



The church will never

recognise...this heresy!



Don't dare! Holy blood!



¡Cantemos todos!



Holy blood. Holy blood!

Holy blood! Holy blood!



Holy blood! Holy blood! Holy blood!



Holy blood!



Holy blood! Holy blood!



Come, Kevin, l don't want this

to soil your pure soul.



- Let's go.

- Yes, go! Get out of here!



Go ahead and destroy this abomination!



- ( Singing)

- Holy blood.



Holy blood!



- Holy blood! Holy blood! Oh!

- Holy blood!



Go ahead!
