Nasty porno horror.
8 March 2005 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

The 70's were the times in which porn was very mean and ugly.Lots of so-called XXX roughies was made during those glorious years of cinematic filth.Among them was infamous "Waterpower" by Shaun Costello.Jamie Gillis plays here a notorious rapist called the Enema Bandit.He viciously rapes his female victims and before the rape he gives them an enema.The cops are trying desperately to catch him..."Waterpower" is certainly a shocking and dirty stuff,but the acting is pretty good and the cinematography is great.The film is filled with gritty atmosphere of urban decay.The scenes of sexual violence are hard to stomach and the misogyny is rampant through its projection time.Jamie Gillis is frighteningly realistic as the Enema Bandit.A must-see for fans of bizarre hybrids of porn and horror.8 out of 10.
