No the bad guy's dog Banjo remains alive & well to the end. He is kept in a cage on the back of the ute for much of the movie (not in a cruel way - keeps a dog secure on the open tray) & at one stage is seen tussling with a wild pig (he is kitted out with protective-wear as a trained pig-hunting dog) but is never hurt & is last seen standing guard by the lost toddler in the bush.

Depends on your definition - alcohol is present (inc scenes at the local pub where people are celebrating the new year & the bad guys drinking a 6-pack of Canadian club cans) but never really presented as someone with an alcohol problem

As mentioned above; Banjo is shown having a tussle with a wild pig & by the sounds you would believe the pig lost, however it isn't lingered on too long & no result is shown other than the fact Banjo is healthy & well after the encounter.
Worth noting that a disclaimer at the end of the film stated NO animals were harmed in the making of the film

I've said no, though I'm not keen on the practice of hunting wild pigs with dogs (I don't know enough about it to have a firm standpoint but the stories I've heard of dogs getting gored & pigs getting mauled don't sit well with me)

SPOILERS




I voted yes because the implication can be pretty forward. The person talk about taking advantage of a woman before one implies he should try to with one they come across. Later on we see that that woman and her mother who have been held hostage by the perps are up on a hill and the mother is clearly half naked...

The girlfriend uses her boyfriends pocketknife to slash the wrist of the bad guy trying to drag her out of the car. The cut is very quick & never shown in detail, only his reaction & apparent need to wrap his wrist with material to stop the bleeding indicates it was a pretty significant slash

**SPOILER**


The final death scene involves the last remaining bad guy crawling away from the car crash (the protagonist had intentionally caused the car to roll) & the protagonist following up behind him, lifting large rock over her head & bringing it down on his head. The actual head squash isn't shown but is heard with a little bit of audio gore.

No - though when one of the bad guys comes out of hiding hours after he'd crashed his car he is shown to have splinted his leg, so he may have broken his leg in the crash though it is never shown

**SPOILERS**


The young family the bad guys toyed with first were all treated horribly before being killed - the father was left tied to a tree (obviously beaten & in a bad way) to watch as his wife & teenage daughter were sexually assaulted for hours, though none of this is shown explicitly only it is clearly evident. The bad guys - now wanting to finish up & leave - then toy with the mother & father by placing an empty can on their heads & having target practice from long range with their rifles, ultimately shooting them both before finishing off the daughter.

Later with the young couple - one of the bad guys strings the girlfriend up from a tree between the bodies of the deceased family & begins to sexually assault her to get her to scream/cry out as he wanted to lure her boyfriend out of hiding.

I can't recall any specific eye mutilation, other than...

**SPOILER**

...when the father is being used for target practice (with a can balanced on is head) & is shot in the eye, though the death is instant & the bullet wound is never shown again or ever in any detail

My interpretation of the fate of the kid was that he was still alive by the end - shown when Banjo (the dog) hears him so finds the boy & lays down with him to 'guard' him... therefore he is still alive by the closure of the film however the scene where he is thrown to the ground is pretty confronting & I imagine would kill any toddler in real life.

Also - the teenage daughter (sister of the toddler) is killed along with her parents after a night of abuse

Twice - the bad guys ute is crashed into a tree caused by the protagonists grabbing the steering wheel from the passenger seat, then again when the bad guy is holding the protagonist & her boyfriend at gunpoint towards the end, forcing her to drive (in the deceased cop's 4WD) so she intentionally crashes it, causing it to roll

The 2 antagonists have a rifle each which they use for 'target practice' shooting cans off the heads of the first victims (ultimately shooting all 3), then they're used again shooting at the young couple on multiple occasions
