The hedonistic Ibiza generation gets its own scary movie in this ingenious, low-budget British shocker that transfers claustrophobic "old dark house" chills to the open sea. In a Mallorca nightclub, three northern girls (Sian Breckin, Nichola Burley, Jaime Winstone) are befriended by three male deck hands (Jay Taylor, Tom Burke, Julian Morris) who invite them back to an expensive yacht vacated by its rich owner. Drink and drugs lead to risqué talk of a bizarre sex practice called the "Donkey Punch", and when the party becomes an anything-goes orgy, an overeager reveller tries it out with unforeseen results. What follows is an edge-of-the-seat, helter-skelter plunge into madness, as the boys try to cover up the incident, the girls become nervous wrecks and a bloody fight for survival ensues. Its lurid excesses won't be to everyone's tastes, but credible performances and assured direction from Olly Blackburn make for a strong, modern morality tale.

Plot Summary

Thriller starring Jaime Winstone. A trio of working class girls on holiday in Majorca are invited onto a luxury yacht by the lads who are crewing it. An afternoon of sunbathing and casual flirting yields to an evening of drink and drugs. But the day of hedonistic behaviour goes horribly awry.
