* GenreBusting: Though often compared to {{Exploitation Film}}s like ''Film/CannibalHolocaust'', the film has a lot of subtle navel-gazing amidst the [[HighPressureBlood rivers of blood]] and {{Gorn}}. Specifically, it hybridizes cannibalism with ''[[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampirism]]''; cannibals are not depicted as diseased savages, but as healthy and refined. In turn, their feasts are not [[IDoNotDrinkWine strangely alluring red drinks]], but [[LetsMeetTheMeat brutally butchered]] human beings who are seen walking and talking when the cannibal decided they were food.

* CannibalismSuperpower: In the film, the {{Wendigo}} myth is true; eating human flesh grants SuperStrength, a HealingFactor, and cures all diseases. It also [[HorrorHunger acts as a drug that makes heroin seem about as addictive as artificial sweetener.]]
