The "monkey" smoking as it watches the two women bathe near a waterfall is not a monkey. It's a chimpanzee - and chimpanzees are African animals, not to be found in South America. Besides, how would a wild chimp/monkey know how to smoke? See more »

Jungle Gore: Softcore Holocaust
11 May 2011 | by (Tallahassee, Florida) – See all my reviews

Well, I'll tell ya one thing. Considering it's only 1976, these ain't the last cannibals, by any means. However, the legendary Emanuelle, along with her love scenes are present and ready for anything these bloodthirsty primitives throw at her! I've always been a fan of the films of Joe D'amato. Films like Beyond The Darkness and Anthropophagus are some of the most disturbing, and all around best that vintage Italian Exploitation has to offer. But I didn't realize until recently that D'amato's body of work extends to yet another sub-genre. Anyway, welcome back to the jungle.

Emanuelle, Journalist/nympho, is working undercover in a hospital. She comes across a girl who was evidently raised by a tribe of Amazonian cannibals. Emanuelle and pals somehow end up in the Amazon. As if that's gonna help anything. As usual, they end up regretting their adventurous nature.

And I'd just love to tell you that Emanuelle And The Last Cannibals is some kind of a gruesome, gory bloodbath, which includes mutilations and castrations like its counterparts, but sorry, not today. And not the usual trapped/hopeless/nightmarish vibe, either. This one is about the love scenes.

Yet, the movie is still semi-gory. So, ultimately, everyone wins... Ya know what? I take that back. And here's why. It just occurred to me that Joe D'amato has thrown xxx love scenes in a number of his films. Not to mention he's made a lot of gore flicks that would put this particular one to shame.

So, tell me, what exactly stopped the man from making Emanuelle And The Last Cannibals a gore-drenched Jungle-Porno... The cannibal masterpiece! But no! Wasn't meant to be. I was ready to give this one an 8/10, but I guess that wasn't meant to be, either. So, 7 it is!

Now,don't think I'm not recommending this, as 7 is still respectable, but it just happens to be lacking in the obvious jungle gore qualities. But, see it!. By all means, definitely see it! Just make sure you see the others, too. Jungle Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox would be a good start. But if it's the love scenes that you're all about, then you might be happy to know that there's an actual Emanuelle series. Emanuelle In America, Emanuelle In Bangkok, Women's Prison Massacre. So, if you're looking for Sexploitation, only. There you go. Otherwise, the last cannibals are waiting! 7/10
