In the fall of 1976 I was in the midst of moving to a farm in Krumville, New York when the phone rang. It was Sid Levine, the front man for the porno unit of the Gambino crime family. I was their largest supplier of feature product, and Sid said he had to see me right away. Urgent. Couldn't wait. So I jump in the car and make the ninety minute drive to lower Manhattan. Sid was looking grim when I got to his office. He didn't waste any time. "Look, I'm a grandfather and I'm ashamed to have to ask you this, but they need an enema movie." I don't want to break the mood so my inner chuckle never surfaces, but it's close. An enema movie????? Sid has been given an audio cassette recording of something called The Enema Bandit, which has a scene where an effete Doctor, assisted by an evil nurse, is giving an enema to a bound and gagged young girl. He's going to use a device called the Bardex Inflatable Nozzle. So I'm thinking that this just might be the funniest single thing I've ever heard, ... Written by
Loosely based on the real-life escapades of Michael H. Kenyon; who for about a decade committed armed robberies on female victims, who he would then sexually assault by forcing them to take enemas. He was also the subject of the Frank Zappa song "The Illinois Enema Bandit", available on the "Zappa in New York" album. See more »
This is one of so-called "roughies", nasty hardcore exploitation cinema. Good example of that kind of cinema is surely the other picture from Gerard Damiano: "Forced Entry". "Waterpower" is quite similar - it's filthy, with lots of XXX scenes included, but they're here trying to say: "we were shoot on purpose". Don't be naive, it's only another fetishistic piece of trash. But it's also quite entertaining. The plot is very simple: there's a man with some serious psychic problems. After a visit in a bordello, where he sees the man doing an enema to a girl, he finds he's new great fascination. He starts to be a "moral voice" of the big city, he traces young women and rapes them. After all he's doing an enema to them to - as he says - purify them. Well..., I didn't find it nice watching water mixed with feces coming out of those girls, but I must admit that this is really original idea. See for yourself if I think that you have to, but remember that you were warned.
