DONKEY PUNCH - The Movie ???

Donkey Punch is the vilest film I've ever seen,' says AMANDA PLATELL



Already the buzz around Donkey Punch is building. After a rave reception at the Sundance film festival earlier this year, it's rapidly emerging as the must-see movie of the summer - 'a gravely serious psychological horror thriller' according to one critic,' frighteningly plausible' says another.

British director and co-writer Oliver Blackburn describes this, his debut feature film, as 'provocative'. Well, I suppose that's one way to describe a morally bankrupt tale of teenage group sex, violence, drugs and sadism which left me sickened to the core.

But Donkey Punch is no ordinary softporn slasher flick. Blackburn claims the characters in his tale are 'socially realistic' - typical of many young men and women of his generation. 'Everything in the film is rooted in reality,' says the 36-year-old director. 'We just took the stuff that's out there and made it into a story.'

In which case, I despair for the future of Britain.

The key thing to know about Donkey Punch is that the film takes its name from a potentially lethal and possibly mythical sado-masochistic act involving anal sex.

I apologise for being so explicit, but unless you understand the central premise of the film you cannot comprehend what a vile production it is.

The plot, if it can be dignified as such, goes as follows: three girls from Leeds travel to Majorca for a weekend's fun as an antidote to a cheating boyfriend. They meet four posh British boys who are crewing a 76-foot yacht during their summer holidays. And while the owner is away, they decide to play. And play hard.

Within hours of meeting, they all sail off into the sunset and are soon so out of it on a cocktail of drink and drugs they lose all inhibitions and start having group sex, taking it in turns to film the assorted couplings.

Egged on by his friends, one of the men then attempts to perform the notorious 'Donkey Punch' on a girl, with fatal consequences. What follows is as absurd as it is disturbing, with the remaining characters subjecting one another to increasingly vile acts of cruelty until there's no one left to maim or murder.
