** 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.

* FreudWasRight: As is jokingly (or perhaps not) stated in the director and cast commentary on the DVD, several people have believed that this movie is all about sex, what with the little white men chasing sweaty women down dripping wet tunnels...
** Invoked by Neil Marshall on the DVD "Beneath the Scenes", where multiple jokes are made about how similar a piece of the cave is to a certain part of the female anatomy. To wit - "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!"
