Product Description

British thriller in which a carefree holiday in Spain for three young women turns into a living nightmare. Things begin to go awry when Kim (Jaime Winstone), Tammi (Nichola Burley) and Lisa (Sian Breckin) meet three young men and, after joining them for a private party on their yacht, one of the men, Josh (Julian Morris), performs a dangerous anal sex manoeuvre known as a 'donkey punch' on one of the women, accidentally breaking her neck in the process. To avoid getting in trouble with the police, the other five decide to throw the body overboard. Pretty soon, however, guilt and fear get the better of the group, leading to a vicious fight for survival.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas, poorly utilised 29 Dec 2011
By BPR
Format:DVD
Donkey Punch is such a hit and miss film. Directed by Oliver Blackburn in his feature length debut, it features some interesting ideas but ultimately falls flat by bringing nothing new to the table and by having hit-and-miss dialogue and acting. Easily the best cast member is Jaime Winstone, showing she maybe has had the acting genes passed down from her dad but everyone else muddles their way through. Blackburn has managed to make what looks like a well-polished and professional film, and he manages to build up the story reasonably well, but after the 'Donkey Punch' it does lose its way and doesn't keep the tension or suspense required to keep the viewer hooked. Overall, it is a bit of a missed opportunity but still worth a rental. 2.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars slick modern horror 24 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A horror film has to believable to be frightening and this achieves that with a wild party on a boat that turns nasty. A claustrophobic and disturbing story.

1.0 out of 5 stars A complete donkey of a film . 14 April 2009
By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I've never attended media or drama school , never done film studies or anything like that but I imagine that if I had one of the things they would tell you is, if you are making a film where characters are in genuine peril make sure that the audience cares about some of them . Otherwise the audience has no emotional investment in the piece and it fails as a true drama. It helps if they can act too.
Donkey Punch ultimately fails because it is (mostly) populated by loathsome characters doing squalid things and then turning on each other like a pack of rabid polecats. Three friends from Leeds-Kim (Jaime Winstone) , Tammi (Nicola Burley) and Lisa ( Sian Brekin) are on holiday in Majorca when they meet up with a gang of lads who have access to a very nice yacht. Seduced by the glamour of the boat, the location and the boys they allow themselves to be taken out to sea . A jokey interlude leads to a sexual reference that has tragic ,though slightly unbelievable, consequences , and before long everyone is at each others throats like contestants on "Come Dine With Me " but without the sarcastic voice over( that would have helped make the film more enjoyable ) and the body count starts to rise .
I have no problem with young people, hell I was one myself once, and have no problem with them enjoying themselves. However I would caution any young women to be wary of boys they have just met and definitely not to do drugs and have unprotected sex ( though it transpires STD,s are the least of their worries) with them .Though as it happens a neck brace is needed more than a condom. This unfortunate proclivity means I didn't have as much sympathy with them as I might have done ,especially since the lads were such a set of objectionable toe-rags.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Best Film I Saw That Day 12 Nov 2008
Format:DVD
Here are three reasons why Donkey Punch is one of the finest films ever made.
1) The plot is amazing. Three chavvy tarts meet some creepy blokes on holiday, then decide to join them on a luxury boat for some fun and frolics. There are loads of tense scenes and plot developments in the first thirty minutes. I particularly liked the part where one of the girls has to decide whether to go swimming or not. Gripping.
2) The characters are all really loveable, especially the three braindead chavs who accept drugs off complete strangers and allow them to video their "adult fun". Good idea. The four guys are very sympathetic aswell, with clearly defined characters that really make us care about them.
3) The incident that fuels the latter part of the story is very accurate and believable, because you definitely can kill someone instantly by slapping them on the back of the neck. Other lethal techniques include a chinese burn and a dead leg.
This movie will probably go on to win more Academy Awards than both Godfather films put together and will doubtless be remembered in years to come as the most influential and original slasher film in history.

Format:DVD
I don't know why this movie is getting such a hard time from other reviewers. It is a mid budget Independent British movie, with good scripts adequate acting and it is visually appealing. The actors at least look good if their acting isn't of an Academy Award/BAFTA winning standard.

I bought this DVD by chance because I thought it would be entertaining - and it was. It was certainly 100% more entertaining than alot of Hollywood block-busters I had bought in the mistaken belief that I might enjoy them. I'll admit the DVD only cost me a fiver and because of this I felt I more than got my money's worth. It made me smile and indeed laugh out loud in parts. I lent the movie to a guy in work and he equally enjoyed it.

It is something different and a great movie if you are about to head off to the med, or have just returned from the med.

Enjoy!
