Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Holly’s Death’ From ‘The Descent’ (2005)

For a horror film to make me jump numerous times AND make me uneasy while watching it is a giant feat to say the least.  That’s what 2005’s claustrophobic cave dweller horror movie The Descent did for me.  I’ve been wanting to write more about this movie on my site, so what better way to kick it off than with a tense little scene where a hobbled female spelunker gets a nasty chunk bitten out of her neck.

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday as I previously stated, I’m showing some love to The Descent.  More specifically, the scene where Holly finally meets her demise (after suffering a gnarly broken leg) at the hands and teeth of a cave creature.  Watching this clip makes me want to re-watch the movie, especially since no matter how many times I watch it I still seem to jump at this scene when the creature appears.  Watch and enjoy!
