Kinky Fun At Donkey Hill
14 August 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I saw this one in LA at a preview screening and really enjoyed it. Pretty darn kinky with lots of sexual humor (some of it extremely tasteless) and some good scary and/or weirdo scenes referencing so many movies that I couldn't keep up. Lots of fresh faces in the high school cast, no plastic Kens or Barbies here. As for the leads, there's a very (very) odd performance from Michael Biehn and a sprinkling of amusingly dark and kooky craziness from Candy Clark, Jay Mohr, and Brittany Murphy. Might be a cult critter at heart, but it certainly has an unforgettable final fifteen minutes. Hasty and breathless in execution - which really only adds to the overall loony pace and energy. I hear the uncut version is utterly ferocious and I'd like to hear from anyone who can get the infamous five minute 'Annette' death scene that was removed from the film I saw.
