The Emanuelle series is often mentioned in discussions about cult cinema and that's hardly surprising since there were so many of them! I've seen a handful of these films (probably most of them) and I don't really know why because I'm not a big fan of the series. Emanuelle Around the World is one of the better ones, however, and while it's not as good as Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (the 'best' of the series) it's actually not far off and is a damn site better than most of the rest of these films. Naturally the plot is not all that different to other entries in the series and this time we see journalist Emanuelle investigating a white slave ring, and getting plenty of time to take her clothes off during the 'investigation'. The film is worth watching for the stunning Laura Gemser who once again reprises her trademark role. Outside of the lead star, the action is fairly predictable, although the film is slightly classier than some of the later offerings. Joe D'Amato takes up the director's chair so as you might expect, the film is generally very sleazy throughout and so fans of the series wont be disappointed in that respect.
