The world of Lycans and Vampires is truly a bloody spectacle, with over-the-top murder scenes that even Dracula would find massively intense. In this universe there is only one person with the training and skills to perform these intricate assassinations to utter perfection, and her name is Selene (Kate Beckinsale). Others sure do come close, though.

To celebrate the release of Underworld: Blood Wars on digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD, we're listing the top five most spectacular kills in all of the franchise.

1. Selene Kills Viktor

  • Film: Underworld
  • Year: 2003
  • Director: Len Wiseman
  • Victim: Viktor, played by Bill Nighy

To begin our list, at No. 1 is the kill that kicked it all off. To protect her lover, the hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman), Selene betrays the manipulative Viktor by splitting his head in half.

2. Selene Kills Marius

  • Film: Underworld: Blood Wars
  • Year: 2016
  • Director: Anna Foerster
  • Victim: Marius, played by Tobias Menzies

After Lycan leader Marius drank the last vile of Michael's blood, inheriting his last remaining memories, Selene reacted by performing one of her most brutal kills yet: She ripped Marius's spine out!

3. Get To The Chopper! Selene Kills Markus

  • Film: Underworld: Evolution
  • Year: 2006
  • Director: Len Wiseman
  • Victim: Marcus, played by Tony Curran

Can it get more brutal than this? After Marcus witnessed the death of his brother William (Brian Steele) at the hands of Michael, he made it his ultimate mission to finish off Selene, once and for all. Unfortunately for Marcus, Selene is an expert-level master in the art of helicopter blades. Ever eaten a sloppy Joe? Well, how about sloppy Marcus?

4. Eve Devours Dr. Lane

  • Film: Underworld: Awakening
  • Year: 2012
  • Director: Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein
  • Victim: Dr. Lane, played by Stephen Rea

In Selene's family, killing is in the blood and no one did it better than Selene's own daughter Eve (India Eisley). Dr. Lane shouldn't have messed with this young bloodsucker.

5. David Kills Semira

  • Year: 2016
  • Director: Anna Foerster
  • Victim: Semira, played by Lara Pulver

Perhaps one of the best kills in all the franchise came when Semira, after discovering her experiments had worked, thus granting her protection from the sun, was killed by David (Theo James).

Underworld: Blood Wars is out on digital, DVD and Blu-ray NOW!
