* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Justified because Thatcher wants to break Anders' will first. And when he first catches Anders in his sights early in the hunt he doesn't fire because it would be too easy. After all, the whole point of HuntingTheMostDangerousGame is to get a thrill out of doing it.

* JungleJapes: Ritter does the "hacking insignificant branches in your path with a machette" and [[spoiler:"avoid great swinging BoobyTrap"]] clichés.

* TheBaroness / PsychoLesbian: Jennifer. Or as critic WebVideo/DiamandaHagan called her, the "crazy, aggressive, rapist, predatory, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking crossbow-obsessed]] lady!"

* {{Make an Example of Them}}: A scene which impressed even Creator/QuentinTarantino is [[TheBrute Ritter]] (played by [[GiantMook 6ft, 3"]] Roger Ward) shadowboxing and then beating to death a tiny female inmate, picked at random as a 'lesson' to the NewMeat.

* RapeAsDrama: So much so that DiamandaHagan invented a DrinkingGame -- every time a character threatens, indicates or suggests they're going to rape someone, take a shot.

The plot of the film is fairly [[{{Troperrific}} archetypal]]: it's TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture and Australia is controlled by a fascist totalitarian government. For the slightest percieved offenses, "deviants" are sent to prison camps to be subjected to reformative torture. The new arrivals at Re-Ed Camp 47 are Chris Walters (Olivia Hussey), a shopkeeper accused of helping a rebel; Rita Daniels (Lynda Stoner), a suspected sex worker; and Paul Anders (Steve Railsback), a political dissident who has escaped from several other camps. After suffering brutal treatment at the hands of Camp Master Charles Thatcher (Michael Craig) and his chief enforcer, Ritter (Roger Ward), the prisoners accept a deadly deal. They will be [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame human prey in a 'turkey shoot']] Thatcher has organised for Secretary Mallory (Noel Ferrier), and fellow [=VIPs=] Jennifer (Carmen Duncan) and Tito (Michael Petrovich). If they can evade the heavily armed guests in the surrounding jungle until sundown, Chris, Rita and Paul will be set free, or so Thatcher claims...
