While trying to expose a corrupt government official, Emanuelle stumbles upon a group that uses kidnapped girls to make and sell snuff films.

only for fans of Laura Gemser
31 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) is a photographer/newspaper investigator/hardcore slut in this sleazy little film be the prolific Joe D'Amato. Emanuelle goes abroad to look for a story, any story. The plot is VERY secondary to getting the beautiful Miss Gemser naked as much as possible. But of course this being a D'Amato film that's not enough for him, so he throws in bestiality (real) and snuff (fake, but disturbing). Everyone except for the aforementioned actress isn't that easy on the eyes, to put it diplomatically, and despite the nearly non-stop action put on display one can't help but to be a tad bored before the films over. Only really worth it for fans of Laura. The only other quasi compliment I have for this one is at least it was better than "Erotic Nights of the Living Dead". Man that movie sucked.

My Grade: D

Eye Candy: Lorraine De Selle, Laura Gemser,Paola Senatore & various extras show all

Blue Underground DVD Extras: uncut version; a subtitled Interview with director/cinematographer Joe D'Amato; an 11 minute subtitled Audio interview with actress Laura Gemser/Poster & still gallery; Liner notes of the Emanuelle films by David Flint; Filmographies for Joe D'Amato and Laura Gemser
