Added DiffLines:

** Hell, the actors for the film crew were actually horrified by the wild animal deaths scenes. Jack's actor, Perry Pirkanen, reportedly broke down in tears after the sea turtle scene. And Alan's actor straight up ''refused'' to shoot an innocent pig, even failing to do a monologue out of horror after hearing the pig's dying squeals.

Added DiffLines:

*** During the whole thing, Faye was screaming and crying, presumably begging for the other two to help her.


* Alan Yates himself. Period.


* Even though they probably [[AssholeVictim deserved to die]] for what they did to the natives, the ultimate fate of the camera crew is horrifying:
** Jack is hit in the chest with a spear. Rather than attempting to help him in any way, Alan shoots him so that they can get the footage of the ritual mutilation. It's unclear whether he's still alive as his penis is cut off and one of his eyes is popped out. Afterwards, the natives behead him and hack his body apart with hatchets, then toss around his internal organs and flayed torso in triumph. His severed head is impaled on a spear and burned while the natives devour his remains.

* The creepy music being used at [[SoundtrackDissonance inappropriate times,]] such as the gentle, almost happy theme song being used in the scene of a woman being decapitated.
* It was considered so realistic that the Italian government thought the filmmakers had made an honest-to-god snuff film, and it took producing the very much alive actors to prove that it wasn't. They had to demonstrate in court how they'd faked the [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalement]] scene.
