When you’re watching your favorite horror films, it’s safe to say you’re likely not thinking too much about windows.

Suspiria is an Italian horror film that was released in 1977. It’s a menacing tale of witch craft gone horribly wrong, with ties to the occult existing within the ballet academy which the movie takes place.

The stained glass window near the beginning sets the tone for the entire film. This window is involved in one of the most brutal and shocking deaths in horror.
