** Possibly subverted. At first it seems that Faye, one of the crew members, objects to a young native woman being gang-raped, but the reason she gives the others is that they're [[PragmaticVillainy wasting film footage for it]]. Given how hard she tries to stop them when this tactic fails, her sobbing "goddamn you" and her traumatized expression in the scene of the girl impaled, it's possible she was just trying to give the others a pragmatic reason since she didn't think an appeal to their consciences would work.

** It was accidental, seeing as the event was 30 years after the film was made, but the final line of "Who are the real cannibals" as they pan up to the World Trade Center is exceptionally effective when seen with modern eyes.

* NoAnimalsWereHarmed:
** Averted; six genuine animal deaths are shown on-camera:
*** Two of them come from the scene where they cut off a monkey's face with a machete, because it was actually shot twice. You read that right.
*** A coatimundi (mistaken as a muskrat in the film) has its jugular veins cut open by Miguel.
*** A large turtle (about three feet long) is captured in the water and dragged to shore, where it is then decapitated and its limbs, shell, and entrails are removed. The turtle is then cooked and eaten.
*** A large spider and a snake are killed with machete.
*** A pig is kicked twice and then shot.
** Luckily, [=DVDs=] and Blu-Rays of the film distributed by Grindhouse Releasing give the viewer and option to watch an "Animal Cruelty-Free" version of the movie, in which all of these scenes are removed.

* ButtMonkey: Faye suffers an disproportionate amount of humiliation and violence throughout the film, despite being the least guilty of the four. Unlike the others, she is repeatedly filmed in compromising situations (naked, urinating, and having sex) by her friends, is gang raped (despite being the only one of the four to ''not'' rape the native girl, even trying halfheartedly to stop the attack), and is brutally beaten and stabbed to death.
