At least there's not a bag-head haunting the ship.

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.

A nasty little thriller that might have worked had it tempered its propensity for outrageous brutality.

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

Very Bad Things meets Knife in the Water in ... [this] thriller about not-so-bright young things trying to cover up a nasty accident.

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.

...has been infused with an egregiously plodding sensibility that effectively renders its few positive attributes moot.

Unfortunately, Donkey Punch delivers a donkey punch of its own.

On the plus side, at least it wasn't called Dirty Sanchez.

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.

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.

The ending is never much in doubt. Getting to it, however, involves a slightly better-than-usual assortment of cheap, harrowing thrills.

An exciting, high-tensioned, fast-paced tale of seven people faced with life-altering decisions when removed from civilization in the mold of "Lord of the Flies."

Violent, sex-filled thriller is rough, grisly stuff.

With its awful ending, the whole film ends up as embarrassing as telling someone what it is you've just watched.

If there's cautionary moral here it's that a girl should never introduce herself to a prospective lover as being "hardcore."

Watching, it's easy to feel a little stranded, too.
