  1. Offers a gripping mix of sexual heat and nasty menace. It's "Dead Calm" meets "Very Bad Things," with English accents.
  2. 58
    The film goes off the rails in the final third, sacrificing subtle character work at the altar of blood-and-guts survival horror. As mood-killers go, it's like a jab to the back of the neck.
  3. 50
    A thriller whose title remains printable only because the right people probably don't know that it refers to a violent sex act.
  4. If Stanley Kubrick filmed an orgy like the one in this film, "Eyes Wide Shut" might have been halfway tolerable.
  5. Reviewed by: Robert Abele
    50
    It's got enough formulaic flair to make it a guilty-pleasure cousin of seaborne nailbiters "Knife in the Water" and "Dead Calm."
  6. A formulaic yet clever chiller that offers generous doses of sex and violence aboard a luxury yacht.

    This predictable film wouldn't be effective anywhere outside a DARE program.

Young so-called adults, drugs and of course as in almost every movie to fill the gap sex. Maybe I should have read what the movie is about but the first 30 something minutes it's just childish talk, drug abuse and sex. I was able to watch the movie till the end. I regret it. Dumb actors and dumb story. Expand
