Please suggest some movies where the local residents kill (or try to kill) unwanted outsiders. If known, what motivated the locals to do so?

The locals might or might not have been provoked. In Southern Comfort
, the outsiders (a National Guard unit) had antagonized the indigenous Cajuns by vandalizing and stealing their property. June 9
involved country people killing a group of obnoxious kids who had been coming into their area and harassing them. But in Vacancy
, the outsiders are targeted by locals who profiteer by selling homemade snuff films. Likewise, the mountain men were trying to rob and rape the city boys canoeing down the river in Deliverance
(Let's assume I've searched "tropes" and IMDB.)
Thank you for any suggestions!
