  1. Offers a gripping mix of sexual heat and nasty menace. It's "Dead Calm" meets "Very Bad Things," with English accents.

    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. Until it plunges into gore, the movie remains above the typical splatter 'n' scream fest. These careless hedonists are convincing, and the ensemble acting feels believable; the orgy looks very real. But the realism turns to caricature once the panicked party monsters begin viciously turning on one another.

    Shows the sort of edge in places that will be appreciated by horror fanboys of all ages, but is mostly too overwrought and over-the-top.

    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.

    Donkey Punch had a great first half, but the latter became a cliche of other movies you might've seen and doesn't bring much except great looking skin. DP is only a must watch if you're into sexy and unusual kinks that don't usually happen. Expand

    Starts as a typical teenager movie. 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
