* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A movie where innocent people traveling through Europe are captured, [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil sold to the highest bidder]] and then [[TorturePorn tortured to death]]. The potential {{Squick}} and NightmareFuel is enough to keep many viewers away.

* ParanoiaFuel: As mentioned under NightmareFuel above, many critics have commented that this movie did to backpacking in Europe what ''{{Film/Psycho}}'' did to showering in motels.

**The American Businessman that Paxton encounters. A metaphor for what would have become of Paxton and his friends if they had continued to be nothing but Jerkasses that want nothing but party and have sex, which would get to the point of them getting bored of it and then resorting to entering the Elite Hunting club and killing innocent people to get any sort of thrill, or just a pathetic attempt by Eli Roth of making the audience feel any sympathy toward the main characters by making an even worse person than them?

** Worse that Eli Roth confirmed that the inspiration of the film came from an ''actual'' event he read about.

* DoubleStandards: The Slovaks were pissed off enough with the film portraying their country as an ensemble of [[Ruritania some of the most glaring and outdated East European clichés]] but they certainly didn't feel much better when director Eli Roth issued a formal apology... to the Icelandic Minister of Culture for having Eythor Gudjonsson star as a drunken Icelander.
