* AgonyOfTheFeet: One of the female FBI agents smokes a cigarette, not knowing it has been laced with [[HollywoodAcid acid]], several drops of which eat through her boot. She briefly stomps her foot in pain [[OhCrap before realizing]] [[BodyHorror she has other problems]].

* PoisonIsCorrosive: Invoked during the HollywoodAcid (see above) sequence. [[spoiler: The cigarette reveals its potency first by blistering Nicole's fingers, and then we see several drops from it burn through her boot-clad foot. Right before the BodyHorror ensues, we see the cig itself melting into the floor.]]

* RedHerring: By the time the cast is whittled down to about five people, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Jake Harris, the supervisor,]] is the real killer when he begins to taunt them through the loudspeakers set up on the island. They find him inside his lair, [[spoiler:only to discover that the speakers were playing a pre-recorded type and Harris himself had been tortured to death.]]

* TheProfiler: Only Harris is an actual profiler, the rest are trainees.
* {{Profiling}}: Both played straight and inverted - every person on the island is a profiler, and the murderer seems to know his victims quite well, enabling some particularly karmic deaths for the flawed criminologists.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Anyone familiar with [[spoiler:Christian Slater's]] usual roles would not expect him to get taken out at all, let alone be the first to die.

* FiveTokenBand: We have four white Americans (one of them being southern for some extra flavour), a British dude, a black guy, a Hispanic girl and guy (the latter of whom is also in a wheelchair).



* HandicappedBadass: Vince is a wannabe profiler in a wheelchair who is still able to do push-ups, and is strong enough to hang from a pipe for several minutes. Also he never goes anywhere without his gun.



* MadonnaWhoreComplex: Sara and Nicole are contrasted this way. Nicole's connection with JD is entirely sexual, as opposed to Sara's emotional connection to Lucas.



* TheTeam: JD is TheLeader, Sara is TheChick and Gabe is the SixthRanger. Elsewhere Bobby is TheAce, Nicole shares TheSmartGuy role with him and also TheBigGuy with Vince. Lucas claims to be the best driver and Rafe isn't really developed enough to slot into a role.



* TwoGirlsToATeam: Out of the team of eight, Sara and Nicole are the only women.



* VasquezAlwaysDies: [[spoiler:Nicole Willis]].

to:

* VasquezAlwaysDies: [[spoiler:Nicole Willis]].Willis is the tougher and more aggressive of the two women and she is killed off]].
