In a remote military outpost in the 19th Century, Captain John Boyd and his regiment embark on a rescue mission which takes a dark turn when they are ambushed by a sadistic cannibal.
It is 25 minutes into the film before Captain Boyd, who is in virtually every scene, utters his first full sentence.
It's not courage to resist me, Boyd. It's courage to accept me.
The orientation of the knife changes between Colonel Hart slamming it into the table and Captain Boyd using it.
The film begins with a famous quote by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900): "He that fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster." Nietzsche's surname is misspelled as 'Nietzche'. Shortly after, a comedic quote appears below Nietzsche's: "Eat Me" - Anonymous.
