Goofs

The crew mention that the yacht is registered in Panama and therefore falls under Panamanian laws when in international waters, the port of registry on the aft of the yacht is visible, and it is mentioned as "Durban" which is in fact South Africa. The ship cannot therefore be Panamanian registered. See more »

Monkey business, donkey punch
22 December 2009 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

Olly Blackburn's classy but nasty thriller 'Donkey Punch' takes a number of standard tricks of the genre: the isolated location, the failing communications equipment, a steadily rising body count; and adds one of its own, namely the lethal fall out from the use of the obscure sexual technique of its title. The opening portions are almost unwatchable, as one waits to see who is going to fall victim to this manoeuvre, against a discomforting backdrop of youthful hedonism. Yet the movie only strengthens as it goes on, the director underlays the mounting gore, uses music impeccably, and there are honest, gutsy performances from the cast. Fundamentally, this becomes a movie about what ordinary people will do to survive in extreme conditions; not pretty, but I found the basic psychology believable. Overall, much better than expected.
