** When [[spoiler:Holly gets her throat ripped out]], Juno shines a light in her eyes giving us an extreme closeup as [[spoiler:Holly]]'s pupil quickly constricts. In reality, pupils dilate shortly after death as all the muscles in the body lose their natural tone.
** [[TheMedic Sam]] decides to reinsert [[spoiler:Holly]]'s broken shin. She might be a medical student, but she's clearly not studying emergency medicine because any 1st year paramedic knows that you attempt to set the bone once before splinting in place & you ''never'' reinsert the bone in an open fracture. Especially not in a muddy puddle in the middle of a cave with who knows what previously unknown deadly lifeforms crawling around.

''The Descent'' is a 2005 British horror film written and directed by Neil Marshall, director of ''Film/DogSoldiers'' and ''Film/{{Doomsday}}''. The film follows a group of six women who embark on a caving expedition and become trapped underground after a cave-in. Things go from bad to worse when they discover that the cave is home to predatory, [[TheMorlocks pale humanoid creatures]] (known as "Crawlers"). As the Crawlers hunt them down, the women embark on a struggle to survive and escape the cave - but that's not their only problem, as the friends' trust in each other slowly begins to deteriorate in the tense, claustrophobic environment. A sequel, ''Film/TheDescentPart2'', was released in December 2009.
