Eurosleaze at it's finest. Someone please tell me why during a sex scene the camera cuts to a chimp smoking a cigarette? Nevermind I don't need an answer this is what you would expect.from Joe D'Amato. Lots of nudity and gore.
Another installment of the Black Emanuelle series with Laura Gemser in the title role. Emanuelle is again willing to take an unusally dangerous assignment to get a story. This time she is sent to find a lost cannibal tribe in the Amazon. While some members of her expedition wind up losers in this quest as they are either used for food or raped (by the entire tribe), the winners are surely the readers of the Evening Post who will be treated to some riveting articles in the coming weeks. Contains several graphic scenes that limit its appeal and audience.
The beautiful Laura Gemser plays Emanuelle, a world-travelling sex freak. As an investigative journalist, she talks her editor into sending her deep into the jungle in order to locate a cannibalistic tribe, long thought to be extinct. This is 1970s soft-core porno horror at its best!
A cult you shouldn't miss..
An uncomfortable mixture of sex and violence even for the 1970s, with some truly gross niplle slices barely relieved by the usual knowing humour.
sleaze at its worst..
At first I thought the title read "Emanuelle and the Last of the Cannabis" and I thought to myself 'Wow, Emanuelle made a stoner sex comedy!" Maybe they have an orgy after hitting the bong. Been there, done that! Then I re-read the title then horrifically thought "Ew, she has sex with cannibals????!!!?" Of course I saw this and no, she doesnt have sex with cannibals. It does, unfortunately, have WAAAAAY too much fake-looking human cannibalistic gore which was the LAST thing I expected to see in an Emanuelle movie. Upon further investigation (and reading the idiotic movie synopsis) Emanuelle doesnt actually play Emanuelle in this borderline slash flick. The actress known for playing Emanuelle plays some other random character which makes no sense considering the name EMANUELLE is in the title and the actress who usually plays the character is in the movie but doesn't actually play her. Whaaaaa?????!!!!. Not for the faint of heart but not to be taken seriously. It's far too stupid for that.
The acting may be appalling, but it's difficult to tell for sure because this is dubbed -- badly. The direction, by high priest of sleaze Joe D'Amato, is adequate, but it's the unrelenting sex and violence that float this flick's boat.
A lot of "classic" exploitation is, in fact, incredible boring, slow moving, and beyond inept. This is not one of those. This delivers what audiences expect, and it takes the carnage several steps beyond the norm. We get nipples cut off and eaten, a vagina cut open and used as a hole to pull innards through, castration, close-to-hardcore sex, stabbings, beheadings and damn attractive women.
Laura Gemser is her usual stunning self as Emanuelle and is lovingly scrutinized in a couple of love scenes by D'Amato's leering camera.
Some of the photography is surprisingly atmospheric and the score is memorable and moody.
The director is often criticized for his output, but I'm happy to congratulate him for a body of work that is, if nothing else, unashamedly extreme and sleazy. Franco made many more boring stinkers than D'Amato and rarely made anything that wasn't awash with shoddy camera-work, nonsensical plotting and self-indulgent repetition. D'Amato, on the other hand, was a dedicated journeyman who gave audiences what they wanted. He wasn't a genius by any stretch and he was sloppy with his action direction, but he did contribute to an impressive oeuvre.
"Emmanuelle and The Last Cannibals" is textbook trash.
