Donkey Punch

Do I need to define the term ‘donkey punch’ for you?  If so, you’re out of luck.  It’s our place to entertain and enlighten, not educate.  Besides, there seems to be a lack of agreement on the subject as to the precise nature of the act.  (Hit the head?  Hit the ass?)  Suffice to say, it’s one of the many sex moves spoken of in urban legend that a wise man would never attempt.  Sure it’s closer to The Shocker than it is to felching, but I still wouldn’t recommend it.

Which brings us to the new British movie, Donkey Punch, where the titular act turns a party boat into a nightmare of murder and betrayal.  The movie is being released in the US as part of Magnet’s Six Shooter Film Series, which also gave us the excellent Let the Right One In and the less spectacular Special.  Upcoming films in the series include Timecrimes, Big Man Japan, and Eden Log.  Check out the new red band trailer below.

The official synopsis is as follows… Three women holidaying in Spain happen across three eager young men, and the six party on the men’s boat. However, everything goes wrong when one of the men, Josh, goaded by his peers, performs a sex move known as a ‘donkey punch’ on one of the women, resulting in her death from a broken neck. The other five throw her body overboard so as to avoid trouble from the police, but their own fears and consciences soon fester away inside, before eventually erupting into violence.

What do you think of the trailer?  Has kind of a Dead Calm vibe about it doesn’t it?  Only with more boobs and fewer Australians.  The title is obviously meant to be the attention getter, but hopefully the film can carry itself just as effectively.  We’ll find out soon enough, as Donkey Punch opens in limited release on January 23, 2009.

Where do you draw the line when it comes to sexually suggestive film titles?  Pearl Necklace?  Golden Shower?  Glass Bottom Boat?  Dog In A Bathtub?
