* BigGood: The Yamamano Tribe are the closest thing to this, just [[BewareTheNiceOnes donít make them angry.]]


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: In his final moments, Alan switches from trying to escape the understandably angry tribe to filming more scenes for his film while in a state of panic. Considering how calm he had been during the whole film, it ends up being a remarkable breakdown when he is finally cornered.

* DarkIsNotEvil: The Yanomamo cannibal tribe is actually a thriving community despite all the creepy visages. Despite being cannibals, they only go after those purposefully harm their community and God forbid should anyone be stupid enough to get on their bad side...

* GloryHound: Alan's primary motivation for the documentary is to earn him more fame than his last film.



* HealItWithFire: Averted. A wound cauterized with a hot machete, [[RealityIsUnrealistic doesn't work]].

* PragmaticVillainy: Faye is upset at the rape of a native woman... because recording it is a waste of film footage. It's possible that the rape of the native actually disturbed Faye and she was just trying to use a pragmatic reason to get the others to stop, considering her reaction when they don't listen to her.
* PrimaDonnaDirector: Alan Yates is not above killing people to fulfil his artistic vision (and subsequently earn him fame and fortune).



* TooDumbToLive: Alan decides to film [[spoiler:the deaths of Jack and Faye]] rather than shut the camera off and get the fuck out of there.



* YouBastard: [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing Isn't it convenient that every film that purports to be a critique about sensationalism is generally wildly sensationalistic?]]

** 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.
