Consensus: Donkey Punch begins as a promising thriller, but loses credibility while adhering too closely to genre conventions.

Not bad, but not great. Has couple of good "holy crap did that just happen?!" moments, but a few of those does not a good movie make.

Donkey Punch abides by all the 'rules' but suffers all the same cliques. Its riskiness is really not that shocking and its idea is really not that… More

Well...It's a movie about a donkey punch gone wrong. But can a donkey punch go right? Pretty much a subject that had to be addressed, but at the same… More
