    Re: bone-jarring

    It's and idiom meaning something that it shakes you and makes you jump.
    It can be literal or non literal. A literal use is:
    A bone-jarring car journey, where you are shaken and thrown about in the car (because of a bumpy road).
    A non literal use (such as your use):
    A bone-jarring thriller A film that makes you jump!
