A luxurious yacht floating in the Mediterranean serves as the unlikely setting for this tightly wound horror-thriller concerning three vacationing ladies whose carefree vacation morphs into a picturesque nightmare over the grueling course of one terrifying night at sea. It began as a fun night out on the town, but after meeting three charming locals at a nearby club, the gorgeous vacationers made the fateful mistake of joining the men for a hedonistic party at sea. Unwisely climbing aboard the borrowed yacht with the libidinous strangers as the sexual tension becomes palpable, the girls… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Packs a magnetic jolt of fearsome intensity."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"Unfortunately, Donkey Punch delivers a donkey punch of its own."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"At least there's not a bag-head haunting the ship."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"A first class thriller from start to finish, Donkey Punch has the lot: raunchy holiday fun, gorgeous locations, a luxury yacht, drug-driven sex orgy and a mishap"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"I look forward to Blackburn making a thriller with a script to match his style."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Donkey Punch is almost humorless, and there's no wink and nudge behind the mayhem to absolve us of taking its ugly, class-obsessed subtext seriously."
‑ Philip Kennicott, Washington Post
"Anyone looking for a stoned and bikinied update of L'Avventura, Purple Noon, Dead Calm, or other boat-bound chillers will have to settle for The Real World: Death Yacht."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Blackburn takes one boat, one body, a rising tide of panic and a rising number of corpses and uses them all to craft the best bad news possible."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"Very Bad Things meets Knife in the Water in ... [this] thriller about not-so-bright young things trying to cover up a nasty accident."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Miss FlickChick
"On the plus side, at least it wasn't called Dirty Sanchez."
‑ Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
"It's Dead Calm meets Very Bad Things, with English accents."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Watching, it's easy to feel a little stranded, too."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"A nasty little thriller that might have worked had it tempered its propensity for outrageous brutality."
‑ Robert Levin, Critic's Notebook
"...has been infused with an egregiously plodding sensibility that effectively renders its few positive attributes moot."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Had director Blackburn included at least one interesting character that wasn't bird-brained and had he moved the mayhem much earlier within the plot, the film would have been at least refreshing to watch rather than mostly dull and derivative."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
