Don´t believe the hype!!!
12 October 2001 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

After reading the reviews to this film and being a huge Joe D´Amato-fan since a long time my expectations were more than immense! The story is about beautiful reporter Emanuelle (played by D´Amato-darling Laura Gemser) who wants to write a sensational story about perverse sexual practicals of America´s high society. Meeting (and even more than that..!) an influential politician Emuanuelle finds a trail to the legendary/notorious snuff-movies where real humans are tortured and killed on film...

A very interesting story, but sadly the execution is only average, because "Emanuelle in America" is nothing else but typical 1970s standard soft sex! When you´ve seen one example of the endless Emanuelle-series you´ve seen´em all - this movie is no exception! In my opinion, the sickest scene is featured in the 30th minute when a naked girl caresses the dick of a horse. Then nothing´s gonna happen... After one hour the first blow job-scene is brought on and in the last third the movie there are some short hardcore takes filmed.

And then at the very end you´ve got to see those notorious snuff-sequences..! Yes, they are extremely violent! Yes, they are extremely disturbing!! However they have a pretty short running time from about 15 seconds all together and they are quite similar to those featured in Pasolini´s "Salo". And I can´t get rid of that feeling director Joe D´Amato only added them to give this after all very tame movie some shocking and provoking impulses..!

If you want to see a real sick Joe D´Amato-movie watch his splatterfest "Buio Omega" instead!!!
