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

Trivia

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 »

not for the easily offended, a roughie gem
8 February 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Back in the golden era of the porn industry they really made some nasty flicks. That era lays between 1972 and the start of the VHS. Most of those flicks are forgotten and are nowadays searched by collectors. The girls in those flicks just looked like your usual neighbours, they didn't have perfect bodies but that added something towards the flicks. Nowadays they look like fake plastic barbie sluts, can't act and are screaming like their life is depending on it.

Water Power was one that had a proper VHS release and played some theatres in Europe. The copy I found even had Dutch subtitles. Finally it is out on DVD but still it is a hunt to find a copy.

Jamie Gillis, one of the well known porn actors, plays Burt. A lonely guy who hasn't got a girlfriend and watches a stewardess undress from his window. From there on things go wrong with Burt. When he's seeing a hooker she tells him of some perverted sex going on in the room next door. He watches it and by seeing enema he decides to clean the sleazy streets of New York.

You don't watch it for the script because that sucks (no pun intended) really hard. When the cops go looking for him nothing goes on and how a cop Irene Murray (played by C.J. Laing) finds him on the streets isn't explained neither but the script isn't the most important thing.

It does contain some normal sex scenes but the ones with the enema are the ones that are hard to swallow (no pun again intended). The first enema is explained in front of the camera and does look normal but once Burt is on the streets to rape and punish things aren't for the easily offended. Two scene's are rather disgusting, especially the lesbian one with Susaye London (Ginger) and Barbara Belkin (Candy). Susaye went further in the business but Barbara made her first and last entrance into the porn industry. Were the scene in the club the enema was done with a cleaned girl (if you know what I mean) pure water came out of her ass but in the lesbo scene filthy shitty water is sputtered in the bath tub were they were standing, but to make it worse Burt gives them a golden shower and to humiliate them he cums on their juggs, not an easy scene to take if you aren't into roughies. Naturally C.J. Laing had do to her stuff too. It's so weird as being a Jew that she entered the porn industry. Nevertheless, she gets an enema too but this time she filled with so much water that it really must have hurt and to make it even worse Burt penetrates her. You can see her being humiliated in Sex Wish and The Taking Of Christina, both from 1976. What makes it all even naughtier is the fact that no effects were used or stand-ins. What you see is the real stuff.

Still it's worth seeing because there is an actual story in it although it isn't that good but it's not just about banging and the face of Jamie did look a bit creepy sometimes. This is really a classic in the 'roughie ' genre and one to see if you aren't easily offended.
