In Australian outback, bunch of tourists take a river boat ride to see the views and some crocodiles too. On their way back, they see a distress signal and follow it. After finding the remains of its sender's boat, they are attacked by very big crocodile and are stranded on a small islet in the middle of the river. With the tide rising, they are forced to confront the croc on its own territory.

* JumpScare: Largely averted; the fear comes from the growing tension and sense of danger. [[spoiler:There is one effective jump scare, when the crocodile suddenly leaps out of the water and snaps up a character.]]



* NothingIsScarier: The crocodile doesn't physically appear in several scenes; victims either vanish or fall prey to [[GoryDiscretionShot Gory Discretion Shots.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WorkingClassHero: Played straight, but ultimately subverted. Kate is a down-to-earth tomboy who knows how to survive in the outback in opposition to resort-loving white collar Pete. They both eventually get opportunities to show that they're largely competent.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: According to WordOfGod, the plot was inspired by the real-life story of Sweetheart, a female saltwater crocodile who became infamous for attacking boats in Australia's Northern Territory between 1974 and 1979. Wildlife rangers attempted to capture her alive, but she became trapped underwater and drowned in the attempt. Her preserved remains are now on display at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.

* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: When the bar owner hears Pete mouthing off about the place on his cellphone, he puts a dead fly on his capuccino.
** In fact, Pete said, "The service here is terrible." What he meant was the phone service, not the customer service, however, which makes it funnier.
* TitleDrop: There are plenty of mentions of "territory", but no "rogue".

* DuelingMovies: With ''Black Water''. Both released the same year, both based on true stories, both about crocodiles. YMMV on which is the better film.
