A bizarre, kinky, mean-spirited, and totally sordid 'cult classic'.
18 December 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Loosely based on the exploits of The Enema Bandit, a criminal who would sexually assault his victims before forcefully administering an enema, Water Power is a hell of a sleazy film—one that makes you feel incredibly dirty for having watched it. A twisted cross between Scorsese's Taxi Driver and a grimy 70s XXX feature, it follows nut-job rapist Burt (played by porn-star Jamie Gillis) as he sets out to cleanse the filthy women of New York, via the use of high colonics.

Directed by smut-merchant Shaun Costello (but often accredited to Gerard 'Deep Throat' Damiano), this film inevitably features a fair dose of adult acts and 'other scenes of a graphic nature' (use your imagination—I'm not gonna describe it!), but it also works as a thriller (thanks largely to Gillis's convincing turn as a total crackpot), meaning that fans of extreme exploitation such as myself can offer up a fairly valid (if not completely convincing) excuse for watching this filthy, disturbing and quite nauseating fetish flick.

As far as rating this one goes, it deserves either 1 out of 10 for making me feel like a total degenerate, or 10/10 for being a one of a kind, unbelievably demented and totally disgusting 'masterpiece', so I'll average it out and give it 5.5/10 (rounded up to 6 for IMDb).
