Mediocre D'Amato Sleaze-Fest
3 December 2005 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS is a pretty slow moving and ultimately dull exploitation film from Smut King, Joe D'Amato. Filled with plenty of tits and ass and a few choice gore scenes, this one still tends to be rather boring and uninspired.

The insanely sexy Laura Gemser once again plays a nymphette journalist who's always looking for the latest "scoop". While doing some undercover work at a mental hospital, our sexy heroine comes across a titty-eating whacko who was brought up by cannibals, which of course starts Emanuelle thinking about her next story. She teams up with a professor and some others and sets out on an expedition into the Amazon. Things go wrong (as they always do in these jungle films...) and our friends spend the rest of the film's run-time being harassed by the local cannibals.

After seeing the Almighty King Of Sleaze Films - EMANUELLE IN America - I was hoping for a lot more from this one. LAST CANNIBALS didn't deliver near the amount of sleazy filth that America did, and although there were a few decent gore scenes (the female-evisceration-innards-eating was particularly choice...) everything in this film felt sort of half-assed and dull. Worth a look for the serious exploit fan, others will probably be bored or disgusted. If you're into this genre of film, skip this one and go straight for EMANUELLE IN America - I guarantee you won't be disappointed - 6/10 for LAST CANNIBALS...
