Film: Rogue

It's nothing like the Jaws poster, this one's in a river and there's a crocodile!
How fast can you swim?

From the director of Wolf Creek, we have a 2007 horror film Rogue, also known as Territory.

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.

Swim through these:

  • Tampering with Food and Drink: When the bar owner hears Pete saying "The service here is terrible" on his cellphone (he meant the phone service), he puts a dead fly on his capuccino in retaliation.
  • Title Drop: There are plenty of mentions of "territory", but no "rogue".
  • Very Loosely Based on a True Story: According to Word of God, 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 tried 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.
