* BatmanGambit: Malla plays Talbot ''and'' June like a fiddle, getting a free trip home and knowing their ChronicBackstabbingDisorder will make sure the secret of the naipe is never revealed.

Added DiffLines:

* MisplacedWildlife: An elephant -- not even an African one, but [[{{Slurpasaur}} an Asian one with fake ear extensions]] -- shows up in the middle of the jungle, and stock footage of crocodiles ''and'' alligators is used interchangeably.

** Say what you will about LarsVonTrier's movies, at least they have SOME sympathetic characters...

** Paul Talbot emotionally abuses his wife for years, drags her to Africa just to use her as a guinea pig in his experiments, announces that the best way to escape is leave her behind, and encourages her to pick a man to murder so that he can enact this plan. Then is shocked when she picks ''him''.

* MayDecemberRomance: Sans "romance", in Paul and June's case. June and Neil play it a bit straighter - at least in chronological terms.

* DysfunctionJunction: Let's see, we have an Endocrinologist motivated solely by greed and lust; his alcoholic wife he [[DestructiveRomance psychologically abuses mercilessly]], yet who later [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain loses all sympathy points]] by becoming the titular Leech Woman; a GreatWhiteHunter motivated solely by greed and lust; a seemingly-noble lawyer who later [[spoiler: [[YourCheatingHeart reveals himself to be an inveterate cheater]]]]; a {{Yandere}} nurse willing to go to psychotic ends to keep her man (AND who [[LackOfEmpathy hardly batted an eyelash]] as she saw aforementioned wife abused time and time again); and a ConMan [[RuleOfThree motivated solely by greed and lust]]. The only remotely sympathetic character is Mala, a [[Really700YearsOld 150-year-old]] MagicalNegro who sets the plot in motion.

* EvilVersusEvil: Everybody vs. Everybody else. [[HumansAreBastards It's that kind of movie]].

* HumansAreBastards: The ultimate moral of the film; There is not a single honorable character in the entire cast, and in fact most of the cast is appallingly petty, occasionally outright [[MurderIsTheBestSolution murderous]]. [[CrapsackWorld And these traits are considered normal and commonplace]].
