aka Trap Them And Kill Them
Emmanuelle, infamous "bored housewife" and international whore of 70's erotic cinema. By 1977 she and her friendly vagina had done Bangkok, discovered the joys of a woman, then told us goodbye in a trio of successful films. Italian auteur Joe D'Amato would pluck Indo-actress Laura Gemser from a small role in the second entry to create his own series of 'E-films' for Italy, with her in the lead, where she was dubbed 'Black Emanuelle'. Under any guise these pictures are just thinly plotted travelogues heavily padded with soft-core sex; however, leave it to an opportunist of D'Amato's degree to take the traveling tramp to cannibal country and exploit two popular trends simultaneously.
Instead, upon arrival in Amazonia, we're treated to more cursory coitus. Emanuelle and the professor frolic while their host's nubile daughter, Isabelle, secretly spies and fondles herself; Emanuelle and Isabelle tenderly wash each other's genitalia as a smoking monkey looks on; and another woman masturbates watching a black man clean his rifle before taking him into the/her bush. The inclusion of another couple into the act affords further frivolous foreplay and needless narrative before some 'ooga-booga' music finally cues the first horribly-lit cannibal attack. Insert some mild gut-munching and stamping about by unconvincing natives here. And so with that long awaited and illustrious introduction, the inevitable fight for survival begins.
1 chewed breast. 1 brief but effective 'found-footage' reel. 1 severed nipple. 1 disemboweling via vagina.
1 human dissection minus any viscera. 3 flesh-feasting sequences. Multiple heads on stakes. Multiple day/night continuity issues. Gratuitous jungle clichés. Gratuitous fertility rite. Gratuitous impotent husband. Gratuitous diamond retrieval sub-plot. Gratuitous disco and use of the song "Make Love On The Wing". And enough simulated petting, humping and masturbation to persuade any self-respecting perv to bring their raincoat, just in case.
