[[caption-width-right:184:It's nothing like the ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' poster, this one's in a river and there's a crocodile!]]
->''How fast can you swim?''

From the director of ''Film/WolfCreek'', we have a 2007 horror film '''''Rogue''''', also known as ''Territory''.

In Australian outback, a 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:
* ActionSurvivor: Pete, a white collar travel writer who has to grow a spine to keep alive.
* BloodIsSquickerInWater: [[spoiler:When the croc attacks Kate.]]
* TheCavalryArrivesLate: [[spoiler:For Pete, as they found the other survivors in the forest when he was battling the crocodile.]]
* ClosedCircle: The islet. The cast could take a swim, but there's a giant croc [[HazardousWater under the surface]].
* CueTheSun: After the night of horror, sun shines on our protagonists.
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: One can be seen during a SceneryPorn moment.
* {{Fingore}}: [[spoiler:The croc bites off two of Pete's fingers in the climax. He retaliates by [[EyeScream stabbing one of its eyes]].]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:Pete finds the upper half of Neil's body in the croc's lair.]]
* HopeSpot: After spending little time on the islet, our cast sees Neil and Collin arriving. Then they are attacked too.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Pete defeats the crocodile by placing himself against a rock, big sharp stick in hand and having it attack him, impaling itself through its head in the process.]]
* [[KickTheDog Eat The Dog]]: [[spoiler:It's the most graphic death in the film.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Neil, who's an asshole but steps up and acts bravely when the situation calls for it.
* 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.]]
* {{Mooning}}: Neil's buddy Collin moons the tourists when they pass them on the river.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: The film even has [[TropeNamer the trope naming song]] playing in the credits.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:After Kate seemingly dies, Pete later on finds her barely alive in the croc's lair.]]
* NothingIsScarier: The crocodile doesn't physically appear in several scenes; victims either vanish or fall prey to [[GoryDiscretionShot Gory Discretion Shots.]] It's remarkable how terrifying just the shot of a tail disappearing into the water can be. Even when on screen, the crocodile is not scariest when it's thrashing about attacking characters, but silently and slowly floating in the water towards its target, waiting to ambush.
* OhCrap: Neil silently climbs out of the water in the dead of night, when he hears a reptilian growl nearby. His expression is perfectly captured in the torch light.
* OneWordTitle: Obviously.
* SayMyName: Everett's wife starts screaming his name when he's snatched by the crocodile.
* SceneryPorn: The film showcases Australia beautifully. Many scenes are just gorgeous to look at.
* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: 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.
* TitleDrop: There are plenty of mentions of "territory", but no "rogue".
* 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 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.
* 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.
