Storyline

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 Shaun Costello

Hilariously Twisted Enema-Porn "Roughie"
3 May 2006 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

Faster than an erupting colon! More powerful than an over-exercised sphincter! Able to cram liters of water into asses with a single nozzle! It's - THE ENEMA BANDIT!!! Oh boy - this one's another weirdy from "classic" smut director Shaun Costello...

Burt (played convincingly by porn-pro Jamie Gillis) is a bugged out freak, who after witnessing an enema procedure at the local sex-club, decides that it's his duty to clean out all the whores he cums across - starting with one of his neighbors that he often peeps on. Armed with a backpack full of enema supplies, Burt goes on an ass-douching rampage of twisted hilarity - including the aforementioned neighbor, a pair of sisters (who are a little too "close" for comfort), and finally a female undercover cop who is out to bust him...

Many seem to find WATER POWER "disturbing" - sorry guys - this one's just down-right funny. Apparently based on true events that happened at Illinois University where some whackadoo went around enemizing co-eds - Costello (according to his own story about the "conception" of the film) states that when confronted with the "material" that he was asked to shoot - he decided to make it a parody of it's own self, while throwing in a healthy dose of TAXI DRIVER-ish pathology blended into the character of Burt. He considers it his funniest film - and honestly, I do to. Not for all tastes by any means, but even though the film offers such "treats" as forced-enema expulsion (both real and staged) one of which is particularly noteworthy where Burt has the girl spray her butt-water on his hand and dong for a little "lube" action, gun-point rape, a little golden-shower action, incest and all-around humiliation and depravity...there's still something in how the material is portrayed that is so over-the-top as to honestly become comical. Either that or I'm just really sick.

The sex scenes are unarousing and are basically comprised of a few rape scenes, and one relatively energetic blow-job from Sharon Mitchell. The first and last enema scenes are obviously genuine, the two "messier" ones in the middle of the film appear to be staged - but are still a riot. Nothing really whack-worthy, unless you are an enema-fetishist - but WATER POWER will appeal to those that dig really uber-weird and twisted films and don't mind a little (or a lot...) of porn mixed in. Definitely some strange (and messy) stuff, and some of the weirdest film-making you're ever likely to witness...9.5/10

EDIT: I have since spoken with Mr. Costello personally - and he assures me that ALL of the enema "expulsion" scenes were REAL and not staged...thanks to Mr. Costello for the clarification...
